UK Sailmakers Ireland

About the Loft

McWilliam Sailmakers started 43 years ago to bring the very latest technology to Irish sailors. Our customers enjoyed local and international success assisted by excellent sail design and technology.

20 years ago we joined the UK Sails group to make use of their sailmaking patent. Contrary to popular belief; UK does not stand for United Kingdom. UK Sails, founded by Butch Ulmer and a famous America's Cup sailor in 1946, is an international group of over 50 lofts spread throughout the world.

We quickly became the lead loft in their R&D programme. While the group has made sails for the last two Chinese America’s Cup campaigns, we are just as happy to work on cruising sails for local sailors! The same team of Des, Cleo, Marcie and Graham will continue to service customers from our Crosshaven sail loft. So when you talk to us you're getting the benefit of years of experience and the best technology available.
