Meade A. Breese/Sailmaker

We specialize in building and repairing traditional sails for cruising sailboats from dinghys and classic wooden yachts to modern cruising vessels.

Because we are a small loft, you'll always work directly with the owners who will make sure your sails are built specifically for your type of sailing. We can assist you with sail-handling systems, splicing, lifelines and all types of running rigging. And to ensure trouble-free sailing, season after season, we can help keep your sails and canvas in tip-top shape with our annual inspection, repair, cleaning and storage service.

We're proud and humbled that our reputation for fine cruising sails extends well beyond the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Meade Breese Sailmakers has repeatedly been voted "Best of the Bay" by subscribers to Chesapeake Bay Magazine.
