Our Sails

As an independent manufacturer Ultimate Sails 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 Suppliers has been developed over very many years. All sails are designed and engineered here in the UK, in partnership 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.

Membrane Sails

 

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 is best for every individual customers sail needs. 

 

We have stayed at the leading edge of design and technology, and sometimes we get the jump. In the Swan 45 we developed the first cut-out jibs, we developed internal taffeta membrane sails for club racers and furling asymmetric sails for cruising sailors. 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.

The satisfaction from winning comes about with knowing why. At Ultimate Sails we do not just produce off the shelf racing sails, every racing sail is bespoke to each customer, their rig, boat and crew. We listen to what you are looking for, we talk to you about the options which are available and we produce the ultimate sail for the ultimate racing 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.
