Our waterproof fabrics (including boat acrylic) 'Docril-N' and Markilux have 100% identical properties to this boat fabric. Otherwise we would not sell or claim this. Feel free to compare all the properties of these extra waterproof boat fabrics. E.g. our boat fabric 'Docril-N' has an even more definite shape and is also slightly more durable.

If you are going to process this boat fabric yourself: keep the coating on the inside. So use the fabric with the ‘nice’ side up(=outwards) and the coated site inward.

The price for this ultimate waterproof outdoor fabric like this boat fabric, is per linear meter. You buy from 1 meter and then per 10cm longer.
For our acrylic fabrics, we recommend 100% bonded polyester industrial sewing thread. Click here for our product range.
This is a special (non-standard!) so-called bonded sailmaker's thread. Due to its special properties, this yarn is by far the most suitable for outdoor applications.
It is durable(very UV-resistant, abrasion-resistant), resistant to salt water, strong and still fairly stretchy.
Our polyester sailmaker yarn can be used for both machine sewing (needle thickness 90-120) and hand sewing
