Polysoft® II

Our new exclusively made fabric with higher spec’s, nick named P2 fabric

What is Polysoft® II?

In technical terms the material is an acrylic polymeric impregnated fabric. In other words it is a coated polyester that has a very high breaking strength, abrasion, mould and ultraviolet resistant. It also has excellent colour fastness and lasting outdoor durability. In fact Outboard Covers offers a 4 year guarantee against fading and rotting. We also offer a 3 year limited warranty on our high quality workmanship (commercial applications we offer 2 years on both).

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!

Latest Testimonial

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…
