Dolphin Covers know that to create the best fitting sprayhoods you must get tension in the whole cover to make the hood become a rigid structure.
Our Sprayhoods are designed with this in mind. The rigidity is produced by cloth orientation of panels and additional reinforcement where needed. Both of these combined with years of staff experience in patterning, the latest CAD technology along with high quality manufacturing standards all come together to produce the best fitting product on the market.
Sprayhood Upgrades and Additional Options
To go with our standard sprayhoods we can offer a range of upgrades that will allow you to customise your hood to suit your budget and requirements.

Osea Window Upgrade
This laminated window material offers exceptional clarity, but you have to handle it with care and cannot sail with your hood collapsed. This is suited to the sailor that wants something a little special when it comes come vision through the windows who never intend to drop the hood throughout the year.
Mesh Side Pockets
These are perfect for stowing small items such as Phones, Tablets, sunglasses and cameras.
Fixed or Folding Hand Rails
For additional safety while at sea, we can supply either fixed or folding side hand rails that pass through the sprayhood and clamp onto your fore and aft frames. These give you additional support and something to ‘grab’ onto when having to leave the cockpit to walk forward.
To create additional protection in the companionway we can add zipped removable ’ Back drops’. These backdrops can include windows/doors and mean that you create a small enclosed area to either sit behind or use for storage whilst moored or sailing.
Drop Top Sprayhood
Some customers still want protection from the spray whilst sailing but don’t like to sail with the entire sprayhood up and in place. We have created this ‘Drop top’ option where the aft bar and canvas can fall forward and rest on the forward bar to create what is in theory a windscreen to protect you from spray whilst sailing without having to have the entire sprayhood up.
