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.

 

Technical Director Kevin Sproul puts his finger on it:

 

“The relationship between us and our Key Suppliers has been developed over very many years. We design the sail here, in partnership with the customer, which includes specifying the fibre content and layout, the surface finish and all of the sail’s actual engineering corner finishing, tapes, etc. Our suppliers are world class manufacturers who use technology we’ve developed over many years. That gives us the consistency and quality required to compete on equal terms with any leading sail maker in the world, supplying anywhere in the world.”

Membrane Sails

 

We can rightfully claim to have a strong background in the manufacture and supply of membrane sails. As part owners of Sobstad Sailmakers in the UK we delivered the first ever membrane sails. We have gone forward from there supplying many more membrane sails than the next biggest in terms of sales. Indeed we have probably sold more than all of the other suppliers combined. That means we have a comprehensive insight into what is best for every individual customers sail needs. And that comes down to our experience.

 

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 of the specification.

 

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

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.
