PVC Polyester, is the cheapest option and offers a good cover but it is not breathable. It is tough, UV treated, long lasting and waterproof.
Cotton/Polyester Is the classic cover of choice for most owners over the years, it is long lasting, breathable and very tough but it is susceptible to shrinkage.
Weathermax – Great for lightweight covers. Choose this if you need a cover that packs up small yet is fully breathable and waterproof.

Nylon Tough 7 oz coated nylon is used for under covers to protect the hull from trailing – soft and easy to fit.
Over-boom, at cover, trailing cover or undercover covers available
Custom manufactured for non-standard boats
Our covers are sewn in anti-wick thread which swells up when wet to make the cover water proof but we can offer an upgrade of thread to ‘Tenara’ which is guaranteed for 15 years, it is almost impervious to UV degradation so perfect for use in high UV areas, acid rain and other pollutants, however ‘Tenara’ is not an anti-wick thread so it can leak in big downpours due to the tread not swelling up and filling the needle hole.
