Heated Outboard Covers  

If you need to keep your motor warm we can make a custom heated cover to fit it. Our heated outboard covers are used in the harshest of environments by military and commercial customers, testimonials and reports from them confirm the ability of these covers to maintain ‘operational readiness’ in some of the most extreme environments on the planet.

We offer a 2 layer cover for temperatures down to -10C and a 3 layer (with thermal insulation) for as low as -50C. They can also be made as an all over ‘Full’ cover or a top section ‘Mooring’ cover (leaves the bottom 1/3 of the leg exposed).

The gallery below has some examples of our heated covers. Please use the contact form below to send us your details, we will then provide a custom quote.

Price example, 150hp motor – Full (all over) heated storage cover:-

2 Layer, suitable for 0 to -10C                   €990

3 Layer, (inc thermal layer) -10 to -40C    €1,188

We have designed a heating system that we can fit into one of our Full outboard covers. These were originally developed for military use in the Arctic (-60 degrees!) but we have a version for less aggressive climate protection.

Our heated covers are made to order and to your specific requirements. The heating system is regulated to maintain a designated temperature and have thermal cut outs to protect from over heating. 

We used a silicone heat pad that can be built to run on most voltages. We would not recommend using over 110V or 240V for safety reasons. If operating in extreme cold (less than -15 degrees) we can also supply Arctic rated cable and plugs.

Heated covers are supplied without any electrical connections (plugs). Plugs and transformers will have to be sourced locally and in accordance with safety regulations.

We love the heated covers! They assure operational readiness and peace of mind when the temps drop. Super durable, easy to use, perfect fit, and looking great!

@newyorkmediaboat

I am happy to tell you all of the covers performed exceptionally well throughout the episodes of subfreezing temperatures. The wind chill factor dropped the temperature to -20c. All interior ambient engine air temperatures were measured from 2-3c. Well done sir.

I am going to recommend immediate accession of the covers for permanent inventory. I will be requesting additional covers in the July-August time frame. I look forward to working with you again James. Thank you for enabling this success.
Huzzah!!

Why not Vinyl?

People also ask what is wrong with using vinyl or a padded vinyl won’t that stop the noise more and offer more protection?

Yes it MAY but as it is not breathable it will cause moisture to build up under both the cowl and cover. This will corrode the motor and damage the paint and decals.

Most people are not aware that a replacement cowl is extremely expensive and if new decals are required these are usually extra and can cost as much as one of our Splash covers.

This is typically what would happen if you made your outboard cover out of a material that does not have breathability such as vinyl or even neoprene which is used on wet suits. They do not have what Polysoft® has!

Completely brilliant cover!

With the sort of abuse we give our outboard (we use it for watersports, so the kids regularly clunk the engine cover with wakeboards and skis) one season later it should look like it’s from a 3rd world country – but instead it genuinely looks as good as new, still fits like the proverbial glove – and despite months of Med sunshine the colour hasn’t faded one bit – can’t recommend it highly enough – if only you guys did covers for the Mothership…
