Sail Design & Construction
A comprehensive range of fabrics are available from the highly durable woven polyester (dacron) to single and double taffeta laminates. Dacron fabrics are generally used in a cross-cut construction giving good shape holding and great longevity.
If you're looking for an enhanced shape holding, weight saving and speed, a tri-radial construction utilising the warp orientated laminated fabrics will be recommended. For a greater performance a Pentex laminate whilst Vectran/Dyneema will produce the best shape holding capability in panelled sails.
A Membrane sail will produce the pinnacle in performance and shape holding. Each Membrane is bespoke and so original to each yacht and customer. There are various yarn options that are used to create each sail to get the very best longevity and durability.
