The Ultimate Sails Difference.

We design, manufacture and fit sails that are unique to each customer’s needs. From offshore racers and superyachts to dinghies and one-design keelboats we produce sails that are as close to perfection as possible.


We control the whole process from design and manufacture to delivery and installation to ensure that our customers not only get their perfect sails, but also for far less than leading brands.


As an independent designers we can choose the best production lofts around the world, depending on what you need and want.  We have free rein to source from where we know the quality is best, where our accurate designs are consistently delivered on time and with a relentless drive for perfection.


We are here by choice. On the strength of our 25 years at the cutting edge of the sail making industry, and having owned leading global brands, we know that we can consistently deliver the Ultimate Sail.


At heart we are engineers, constantly looking to perfect the way we design and make sails.  We couple the latest technology, analysis and fabrics with our own relentless enthusiasm for finding the tiny improvements that make huge differences. Passion works best with expertise and that’s what makes Ultimate Sails exceptional.



The only thing we consider to be old fashioned about ourselves is that we genuinely strive to deliver superb customer service. We have learned that happy customers are those who get more from their boat, and that’s why we have so many loyal customers who have been with us through our sail making lives.


Sometimes our customers are brilliant sailors who need the extra 1% to make them world champions and sometimes they’re day sailors who want to get to the next harbour with a little more style and speed.


All our sails are designed in-house by a team who have huge experience across all of sailing’s diverse disciplines from dinghies to superyachts, so we know how to find the technical magic that makes the vital difference. Equally, we are always learning and developing and we are small enough to adapt quickly to what we learn.  There’s always another small improvement we can find out on the water.


We have a rapidly expanding list of racing successes to our credit already, from the hotbed of the IRC fleet to one design sports boats, proving that our methodology and designs are fast and competitive.  


So whether you're looking for a new suit of sails for a 100 ft Superyacht, a Code Zero for a 40 foot Racer or a Cruising Chute for a 30 ft Weekender, we have the knowledge and experience to ensure that every sail will be perfect for your intended use, at a price which is affordable. 


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.
