What our customers say.

Cruising

"Thank you for the level of support, advice and guidance that you gave us when we were fitting out our boat for long term cruising. Your personal care, attention to detail, good humour and the meeting of tight timescales during a busy period for Ultimate Sails truly reflects the name of the company - with a service above and beyond any others we have encountered."

"We spent 10 months choosing our new boat and we wanted as much thought to go into the sails. Many happy hours were spent with Paul and Kevin, with them persuading us fewer sails would be better to start with for shorthanded cruising, but all of them rated to take us up to fully crewed racing. Sexy, beautiful sails arrived well on time and were finally bespoked on the boat to perfect the fit. Some expert sail trim coaching from Paul gave us confidence and now we are enjoying our boat! We're looking forward to building our sail wardrobe with Ultimate Sails as we take on new challenges."

"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!"

"The Ultimate Sails loft service has been brilliant and is a life line to our business, I have to say a particular thanks to Paul who has spent a lot of out of hours time doing last minute repairs for us. We would struggle to be able to function without a reliable loft service and you have managed to provide us with. First class service."

Racing

"The speed edge we gained from choosing Ultimate Sails gave us a potent package. Team GBR Red came out ahead overall, but as impressive was the way “Keronimo” won the battle of the Kers. Our down wind speed edge was evident from the moment we hoisted our new A1.5 kite and our upwind advantage was also clear. We were simply faster on all points of sail and in all conditions."

"The new sails have been unbeatable and our performance across a range of wind speeds allowed us to go higher and faster than the competition."

"A massive thank you to Ultimate sails for a fantastic service. It has been a real pleasure working with Kevin and Paul to develop these race winning sails. The personal service, thoughtful development and attention to detail has been truly exceptional and the results simply speak for themselves: RIOW: 1st in class and group. Cowes week class 2: 1st. VAC one design: 2nd. Top J111 at 175th Royal Southern Regatta."

"Thanks to the Ultimate Sails J80 sails on JAT, we were always able to have the edge in height or speed over our rivals. This enabled us to get out of tricky situations both off the start lines and around the race course. Due to this, we were able to post top 5 results at the nationals even when going the wrong way, especially upwind."
