Partner of NV Equipment

In November 2022 we became partners of the french company NV Equipment, one of the largest companies and pioneers in covers, sprayhoods and canopies in Europe. 

NV Equipment's history dates back to 1977, when Jean-Yves and Josette Chevalier decided to turn their passion for sailing into a business.

Since then, the company has grown enormously and developed a wide range of products over the last 40 years. We are pleased to introduce the excellent products of NV Equipment to our customers. Here you will find canopies and covers not only for french sailing yachts and motorboats, but also for our German brands, Hanse and Dehler.

If you are interested, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will advise you on your boat’s sprayhood or cover (type of fabric, frame design) and together we will select the best type for your sailing yacht, motor boat, catamaran or similar. Our service also includes a canopy installation service (on vessels in our vicinity or on our "South Tour" route), repair and cleaning.

Sprayhoods, Cockpit Tents, Biminis

We manufacture customised sprayhoods, cockpit tents, motor yacht and bimini sun canopies. We use quality fabric from SUNBRELLA, MASACRIL, MEHLER NAUTICA and WEATHERMAX. We don't make off-the-peg canopies - we produce an individual sample for every order. We supply our folding frames preferably in 22mm|25mm V4A stainless steel tube with V4A stainless steel fittings. We have pretty much every knob and fastening system in stock.

Send us a photo of your boat and we will draw you a design of your new canopy without any obligation.

For years, we have travelled further afield to install the canopies and have been able to win many a satisfied customer in the process. Nevertheless, we also have to admit that assembly far from the workshop has its pitfalls.

Consequently, we now limit the radius for canopy-making and canvas work to within one hour's drive around Greifswald, covering an area from Rostock to Ueckermünde. Anyone who would still like to have Tuchwerkstatt canvas on their boat is invited to sail or motor here and moor the boat for, say, 14 days or so in one of the many berths in Greifswald (at Yachtservice Wilke, Holzteich-Marina, Museumswerft Greifswald etc). Many customers do this and combine the new sprayhood with the start of their boating holiday or a round trip through the Bodden waters. Welcome!

Sailcloth Bags and Rigging Bags

We make individual bags for every taste. Each one is unique. You can choose from various new sail and tarpaulin fabrics. Or you send us a piece of your own old sail and we make your original boat’s bag from it. We also make traditional rigging bags, with fine hand-craft. Feel free to contact us with your ideas and wishes.
