The Sails

Every sail UK Sailmakers sells is made in a UK Sailmakers loft. This is the only way to insure boat owners get the quality sails they expect. Beware, not all sailmakers make all the sails that are sold with their label.

Getting started selecting your new sail

UK Sailmakers Sweden Gothenberg LoftThe process of deciding what new sail to purchase involves answering a number of questions directing you to the right sail for your boat and your particular sailing needs. Ultimately, you will have a series of conversations with your UK Sailmakers sailmaker, either in person or on the phone, to discuss and agree upon what combination of design, materials, construction and options make the most sense for you. 

The information provided here is not designed to answer all those questions, but rather to provide a core understanding of the factors to be considered when selecting a new sail. With this knowledge in hand, your sailmaker conversations will be more productive. 

Sail Design 

Not all boats are the same so not all sails should be shaped the same. Creating the actual sail shape for any new sail starts with UK Sailmakers’ proprietary CAD/CAM AccuCut and other leading sail design software, powerful programs that use bezier curves to accurately define a sail’s shape on a three dimensional mold.
