Merlin Rocket Breathable Boat Cover - Flat - Polycotton
This breathable Merlin Rocket boat cover is made from a breathable polycotton material which is a mixture of polyester and cotton.
The unique characteristics of polycotton ensure that the air flows through the cover when dry but when it starts to get wet the cotton within the material expands to close the gaps and keep the cover waterproof.
The boat cover is designed to be used when the boat is in the boat park and will sit flat against the hull when the mast it up. There is also a strap in the centre of the material where you can attach a halyard or line to the boom to prevent water from pooling on the cover.
Please note, we will require some measurements from you at the point of order as Merlin Rockets do vary and we want to ensure your cover fits first time. Get in touch today for the measurement form.

Why are Polycotton Boat Covers the best?
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 shrinks allowing moisture to evapourate 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 than a PVC boat cover, 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
