About Us


Established in 1946 as Ulmer Sails., UK Sailmakers is one of the oldest group of lofts in North America. Over 60 years later, the UK Sailmakers group has over 50 lofts and service centers around the world. UK Sailmakers has been on the leading edge of sail development ever since the late ’40s when Ulmer Sails dominated the Star class, 5.5 Meter, Snipe, Lightning and Comet one-design classes.

In the spring of 2005, UK Sailmakers merged with the Halsey-Lidgard group of sailmakers. The merger of two of the premiere sail brands formed one of, if not the, most comprehensive sailmaking organizations in the world. Although this ranks UK Sailmakers as one of the largest sailmaking operations in the world, the purpose of this merger was to be able to deliver the best sails of highest quality using most advanced technologies, to customers - wherever they are or they sail - anywhere around the world.
