About the Loft
In 1975, Scott Allan Sailmakers was formed to create the ultimate in personal sail loft services in the Mid-Atlantic region. As a founder of Horizon Sails and subsequently a member of the Doyle Sails Group, sailing champion and Olympic sailor, Scott Allan has made a commitment that UK Sailmakers Annapolis will be a source of outstanding new racing and cruising sails, as well as a leader in providing top quality service through its fully staffed service department.
By joining forces with the UK Sailmakers, UK Annapolis aligned itself with one of the most powerful and influential forces in sailmaking.
UK Annapolis is a full service sail loft. All sails are designed, computer cut and built at our loft in Annapolis. Other services include a canvas shop, and the sale of any roller/furling system on the market. Our sail consultants can answer any roller/furling question. A sail loft is only as good as it's people. At UK Annapolis, Scott Allan has been running the loft since it opened in 1975. More than just top sailors, our consultants are perceptive, articulate, and anxious to communicate clearly and simply the ideas and concepts that helps each sailor choose the right sails to begin with, and then help use and maintain them throughout their life. Our sail consultants include: Scott Allan, Steve Barbano and Bill Birminham.
