As an independent sailmaker we are in the fortunate position of being able to access the best technology in the world for your sails.  The relationship between us and our key partners has been developed over very many years. All our sails are designed and engineered here in the UK, in discussion with the customer, which includes specifying the fibre content and layout, surface finish and all corner finishing, tapes, etc. Our suppliers are world class manufacturers who use technology we’ve helped develop over many years. That gives us the consistency and quality required to compete on equal terms with the leading sail makers in the world.

We can rightfully claim to have a strong background in the manufacture and supply of membrane sails. As owners of Sobstad Sailmakers we manufactured the first ever patented membrane sails here in the UK and were sole suppliers to many of the leading one design dinghy and keelboat classes including the Sigma 33 and Hunter 707s. In terms of sales we have probably sold more membranes than all of the other suppliers combined. That experience means we have an unrivalled insight into what works best for every individual customers sail needs. 

 

We have stayed at the leading edge of design and technology, developing taffeta membrane sails for cruising and offshore sailors along with Platinum surface coatings for improved durability.

 

Our engineering books (the engineering and construction protocols which determine how the sails are built) guarantee that our sails are built to a consistently high standard, all the time, no matter the size or the specification.

 

We offer no limitations on design, we are small enough to offer bespoke design and experienced enough to compete with the market leaders.

Racing Sails

The satisfaction from winning comes from knowing why. We never just produce off the shelf racing sails, every sail is bespoke to you, your rig, boat and crew. We incorporate your aims and thoughts into the final design before making the optimum sail for that racing "edge".

Cruising Sails

Every Cruising sail is made to order, designed in-house with requirements that vary depending on a number of factors. Are you cruising along the coast, crossing the channel, an ocean or going around the world?. How much does performance matter?, or is it all about budget?.  Once we know your sailing plans it's easy for us to produce the optimum sail for the ultimate cruising experience.

One Design Sails

In any one design fleet crossing the line first is what counts. When hulls and foils are identical it's the one design sails and crew work that make the difference between winning and losing and that's where Ultimate Sails can give you an edge.
