Boat Covers now available from Sailing Chandlery

Sailing Chandlery, the online chandlery, have just launched their latest product in the form of boat covers.

Available in PVC polyester or Polycotton our boat covers are made in the UK and are of the highest quality.

All Sailing Chandlery boat covers come with no string or eyes, they are all supplied with soft webbing straps and easy to click together buckles.

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 working day lead time, although most of the time this is quicker.

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
