Boat Covers from Sailing Chandlery

At the end of 2017, the company that was then Dinghy Rope (now Sailing Chandlery) ventured into a new market of supplying boat covers.

We initially started quite small just offering a few simple covers in both PVC and a breathable polycotton material.

Since launch our boat covers have been very successful and we're now shipping a good few every week for a range of boats big and small. For example this week we've sold boat covers for Lasers, Toppers and an A Class catamaran.

Most Popular Boat Covers

Our most popular boat covers are:

  1. Topper PVC boat cover
  2. Laser Pico PVC boat cover
  3. Laser breathable boat cover
  4. Solo boom up breathable boat cover
  5. RS800 breathable boat cover

Why choose a Sailing Chandlery boat cover?

Our boat covers are all made in the UK and come with a number of features:

  • Soft webbing straps
  • Easy to clip together tie downs
  • Transom tie down at the base of the boat cover
  • No strings or eyelets can be seen
  • Top quality materials used

Difference Between PVC and Polycotton Boat Covers

PVC polyester boat covers are the standard and are thicker and heavier and have a more shiny finish.

Polycotton boat covers are the best for your boat for a number of reasons. The cotton fibres in the polycotton boat covers blend and swell when they become wet. This helps to make the fabric more waterproof the wetter it becomes. As the boat cover dries, the fibres shrink allowing moisture to evaporate away from the boat.

The 50/50 polycotton fabric combines the strength of the polyester with the breathable nature of the cotton.

Although more expensive, the cotton gives the material its unique breathable characteristics. Other benefits also include:

  • Less abrasive on varnished wood
  • More breathable to prevent osmosis on frp
  • Many manufacturers only guarantee hulls with Polycotton covers

Shop Boat Covers

We've made it easy to find your relevant boat cover by dividing them into categories:

There are different covers available and some boats have different options including flat covers, boom up and under covers.

All covers are made to order and have a 10-15 working day lead time, although most of the time this is quicker. We also hold some of the more popular covers in stock.
