Shown above are Uni-Titanium sails on one of the Turkish Navy’s three new MAT 1180s.  Before the sails reached their finished state, UK Sailmakers expertise from around the world came together for this high profile order. To study the boats and figure out  the sail designs, they flew in UK Sailmakers’ Design Committee Chairman Pat Considine from Chicago to sail on a sistership and make detailed measurements. UK Sailmakers Hong Kong built the Uni-Titanium sails while UK Sailmakers Turkey will service them. The first inventory of sails was thoroughly tested by the navy before ordering the remaining two sets of sails. The new Uni-Titanium sails fit the rig perfectly and the boat sailed beyond its target speeds, which sealed the deal along with the top quality finishing touches.
