Boat Cover

Hi everyone!
I recently bought a new boat and am now looking for a quality boat cover to use for towing and storage. It will be towed often and for a couple of hours at a time.
Any recommendations on where to get a good quality cover made in Melbourne?
It's for a Quintrex 481 Fishabout.
Cheers
