Tradition Meets Technology
Although we use modern materials and the latest technology, our approach to detail and customer satisfaction is distinctly old-fashioned — we listen to you, then build each sail to suit your exact sailing requirements and to meet your boat's specifications.
From mains to mizzens, spinnakers to stormsails, each sail is constructed with meticulous care to every detail. Using designs proven for cruising sailboats — our standard sails are triple-stitched on all seams, and have heavy, reinforced corner and reef patches.
Standard too are hydraulically pressed rings, alloy headboards, regular leech battens, webbing reinforcement on corner rings, leather chafe guard, webbed-on mast and boom hardware, leech lines, draft stripes and tell tales. And each sail we build can be repaired in an emergency with materials that you can carry on board.
From years of experience building and repairing sails, we believe that high-quality polyester Dacron is the best material for cruising sails. It remains serviceable longer and is easiest to repair.
