If you're in the market for a new breathable dinghy or boat cover then you've come to the right place. Sailing Chandlery provide a full range of dinghy covers for the most popular boats on the market. We can also make custom dinghy covers should you need that service.
Our breathable covers are made from a top quality polycotton material which allows the air to circulate around your boat and under the cover, perfect for the more delicate material of boat.
You can view both our PVC and breathable covers on our boat covers page.
Although more expensive a breathable cover will provide better protection for your boat in all conditions. Having the air flow through the cover means your hull is better protected preventing against osmosis, it will also keep the boat cooler in hotter conditions where a PVC cover can act as a heater.
A breathable cover is also softer so offers less abrasion on varnished wood surfaces for example.
It's worth checking what your boat manufacturer recommends as many manufacturers only guarantee hulls with breathable covers.
You can view all our breathable cover options on our covers page.
Our cover material is a mix of polyester and cotton. When the cotton gets wet it expands meaning the cover material closes up stopping water from going through the material. When the cover starts to dry the cotton shrinks down again allowing the air to flow.
With a Sailing Chandlery boat cover you can expect the following:
Here are a couple of photos of a recent RS800 breathable cover we've supplied to a happy customer. The photos show the cover without the mast on the boat, with the mast on the boat it would allow the cover to be lifted into a better position.
