Moondance is a replica gentlemans' steam launch circa 1890 and was launched in July 2014 at Restronguet Creek, Cornwall.  It has a 4.2 hp single stroke engine. With a full head of steam, it puts out 6.2 knots. Moondance is an award winning steam launch with a Windermere pods trophy, winning the pot for the best turned out traditional steam boat.

The cover has been finely trimmed around every detail of the steamboat, to ensure full protection from the weather.  We have provided secure flaps with turnbuttons for the warps, and the cover is tied down using shockcord and hooks.There are also vents for air circulation.

About Us

Penryn, Cornwall, United Kingdom
After two years at Falmouth Marine College, Paul, with a Diploma in Boat Technology, and an engineering qualification, joined a local sailmaker and very quickly developed a boat cover department within the business. After three years, he joined another local company and this time stayed fourteen years! In November 2004 we decided to go it alone and Ocean Covers was formed. Since this time, we have worked in local marinas and boatyards, on Ministry of Defence vessels in Port Pendennis Shipyard, and on every type of vessel from RIB to luxury motor yacht. Gill ? Well I have been bookkeeping and office managing for over twenty years, so this has proved very useful in the running of the business, keeping the paperwork in order, and making sure the bills are paid!
