Feel the pride of hoisting a sail you made from scratch with a Sailrite® sail kit. For over 50 years, Sailrite has been the premier resource for sailmakers, offering everything from high-quality sailmaking kits to the best-of-the-best sailcloth sewing machines. You can trust the integrity and quality of Sailrite sails because each one is plotted and designed in our Indiana loft for maximum performance with the draft, twist, entry and exit curves carefully calculated, controlled and positioned on each sail. Every sail kit comes complete with all the materials you’ll need, including the highest grade sailcloth by Bainbridge, Challenge, Contender and more.
Once you start sewing sails for yourself, you’ll be on your way to a lifetime of savings. Sail kits provide you with a custom sail, with high-quality materials for less than special order. Plus, the skills you develop when crafting your own sail are invaluable. Sailrite has easy-to-order DIY sails for Catalina, Sunfish, Laser, O’Day, Spindrift, Bolger, Glen L and many more. And, we’re more than happy to help you create your own custom sail kit for your boat, including custom dinghy/One Design sails and custom cruiser/racer sails if you don’t see your specific sail listed in our shop. All pre-designed and custom Sailrite sailmaking kits come with everything you need to craft a sail from scratch, including performance sailcloth, thread, needles, grommets, rings, eyelets and more.
We’re happy to assist you with creating DIY mainsails, spinnakers, genoa sails, jibs and other types of sails. Why shop Sailrite? We started out in 1969 selling only sailmaking kits and instructions, and it’s our passion. Our founders were pioneers of plotting and engineering sail kits, and we’re committed to preserving that legacy. Our impressive selection of sailmaking guides and resources have helped beginners for decades, and we’re constantly expanding this department to ensure that you’re closely guided every step of the way.
