Kayospruce has introduced a new range of Vico Marine products, designed for improved ventilation and to give support to all boat covers, canopies and tents.

The Boat Vent 3 (BV3) is the third generation of the product, designed as part of Vico Marine’s boat cover support system.

The product allows the boat cover to vent properly enabling moisture to escape with the resulting reduction in mildew build up.

The vent has been developed to prevent rain or animals to enter the boat cover.

It is made in the States from UV­resistent materials and is available in black or white.

It can be used with Sauleda acrylic canvas and Marlen polyester fabrics that are available from Kayospruce.


The boat cover support system includes extendable support poles made using anodised, ribbed, heavy duty aluminium.

The poles are combined with Vico’s aluminium die­cast collars, designed for high-strength and secure length adjustment.

The poles have been tested to carry a load of 75kg and will support the BV3. They are available in five different lengths.

Vico Marine has also developed its first sewable vent that is made from a durable, soft rubber and can be sewn directly onto the cover.

It is available in two sizes and in both black and white. The large size is a one-piece system, suitable for sail boats and large motor boats.
