Doyle Cradle Cover

Doyle Cradle Cover

The Doyle Cradle Cover™ was developed by Doyle Sailmakers in response to the Mooring's desire for a StackPack that could be easily removed from the main. With a Cradle Cover™, if the main needs repairs, a new main can be put on and the Cradle Cover™ can put back on.

Today's boats are more performance oriented with big mainsails and Doyle offers the perfect mainsail handling solution, the Cradle Cover™. Drop your halyard, a quick zip, and you are finished for the day.

Even if you don't zip the Cradle Cover™ the sail is mostly covered and protected from the sun. Great peace of mind for those people who are unlikely to put on their sail cover when they stop for lunch at a quiet little anchorage. Reefing your sail is even easier as the excess sail cloth under the reef points is contained by the cover and there is no need for intermediate ties.

Cradle Cover™ FEATURES

Cradle Cover™ BENEFITS

Sail cover with secured zipper tail. Enables quick and easy covering of the sail without the need for sail ties.

Subrella cover. Extends the life of the sail. Wide selection of colors. Customizable with logo or text.

Cradle Cover™ neatly flakes the sail above the boom.

Improved visibility.
Reef lines pass through the sail cover. Easy reefing with no need to tie sail to the boom.

Cradle Cover™ cover does not attach to the sail. The Cradle Cover™ can be put on an existing main without taking the main off the boat.

The Cradle Cover™ can be removed from the sail.

Cost savings in comparison to a StackPack, which includes a membrane attaching the cover to the sail.

Brummel hooks are used to connect the lazy jacks. Lazy jacks never need to be retied. Simplifies installation and removal.

Existing mains can be used as a base sail for the Cradle Cover™. No need to replace your main to install a Cradle Cover™.

Easily raise, lower and cover your sail when single-handed. Take the hassle out of dousing your main and enjoy your boat more.

No need for sail ties

Cradle Cover™ is a fully battened mainsail with lazy jacks and cover that opens automatically to accept the sail as it is lowered. The cover and lazy jack system neatly flakes and holds the sail as it is lowered or reefed. The folds at the foot of a reefed mainsail also lie neatly in the Cradle Cover™, eliminating the need to tie off the excess fabric with ties.

Extend the life of your main

With the sail completely stowed, the Cradle Cover™ system presents a neat appearance and automatically protects the sail from harmful UV rays.
