Atlantic 21 cover

Hi folks.

I have my Atlantic 21 in Egypt where the sun is strong and the UV powerful.

I tend to keep it on the trailer under a shade but the sun still hits it at certain times of day.

When I got it in the water I had a cover made locally for it. The cover covered the tubes and it sat in the marina. I left it there for a total of three months using it occasionally but within six to 8 weeks the cover was tearing and eventually was a strong as toilet paper. I jest not you could poke your finger through it.

I want to get another cover made but the quality of material here is poor. Can anyone recommend a UV resistant material that's lightweight?

Also if possible I'd like it making up in the UK if there's someone with a pattern that doesn't need to measure the boat, any recommendation gratefully received.

Lightweight and UV resistant? Try Weathermax 80.
