Downwind Cruising Sails

"Paul Hooker and Ultimate Sails provided an excellent service, as we are new to yacht ownership he took time to explain the various options, measured the yacht, designed the sail and delivered it personally to the marina. The chute looked amazing and easily managed by the two of us. We even had the benefit of his skills on the water for a couple of hours!" Martin & Christine Lunt "Gilliatt"  Malo 43

Cruising Code "0"

If you're looking to add more reaching performance from your boat the Ultimate Sails Code "0" fits the bill. Designed specifically for each individual boat. Our unique full radial multi panel construction is combined with the best nylons to give a sail with a smooth flying shape. Corner loads are addressed by specially engineered layered radial patches which help to spread the loads through the sail more evenly and absorb the shock loads inherent in all downwind sails. All Ultimate downwind sails are designed to suit your exact requirements using a suite of highly sophisticated design tools and drawing from a database of 12,000 designs compiled over 20 years.

Furling Asymmetric

Once hoisted and unfurled the sail is sheeted like a Genoa although it adds a lot more performance over a wide range of wind speeds and angles. The versatile design has been refined over many seasons so that it is stable and easy to trim in all conditions. The sail includes a single line furler and anti twist rope in the luff to make handling easier.

Cruising Chute

If you are looking to add more horsepower to your boat when sailing downwind then the Ultimate Sails Cruising Chute is the perfect choice.  Once hoisted it is sheeted like a Genoa although it adds a lot more performance over a wide range of wind speeds and angles. The versatile design has been refined over many seasons so that it is easy to trim  in light conditions and allows you to run deep in stronger winds. A snuffer is recommended for easy and safe handling when sailing short handed.

Ultimate Sails snuffers are designed to make it easy to use your cruising downwind sails especially when sailing shorthanded. A pocket houses the uphaul line to stop twisting and the grp mouth shape ensures smooth retrieval. Finally a light weight mesh sock allows the sail to breathe and dry out during stowage.
