Winter sail service and laundering

Do you want to see a real return on your sail investment?, then it's not too late to book a winter service for them.


We will be happy to check your sails over for you, make any necessary repairs, launder them and return them to you in time for the new season. Of course, if you need to replace any of your sail inventory we will be delighted to provide you with a competitive online quote or just give us a call. 

 As Kevin Sproul, Director of Ultimate Sails, explains, ‘There are six deadly sins that can shorten the life of your sails: sunlight, flogging, creasing, salt water, chafe and dirt. On the other hand, if there is one simple step which owners can take that is guaranteed to improve the performance and longevity of any of their sails, irrespective of the type or cloth, and that is to have them properly laundered and serviced.'
Whilst Sproul's six deadly sins are never entirely avoidable over the course of a sailing season, by booking your sails in for a service now, Ultimate Sails will be able to check for any damage or wear, make repairs where necessary and launder your sails to ensure that you are all set for the new season. 

If your boat is based in the Hamble area we will be happy to collect your sails from your boat and return them for you once the service is complete.
