The Sailrite® Ultrafeed® Sewing Machine combines the convenience of portability with the power of an industrial sewing machine. These heavy-duty, walking foot sewing machines are built to handle thick assemblies and are specially designed with sailmakers, boaters and DIYers in mind. The toughness of the Ultrafeed makes it a great heavy-duty sewing machine for any sewist in need of more power. Additionally, every Ultrafeed is built with robust, all-metal internal parts and patented technology to make it the best portable heavy-duty sewing machine available. The patented Posi-Pin® Clutching System, for example, provides 100% power transfer from the balance wheel to the upper drive shaft, powering the needle. Best of all, each Ultrafeed is completely portable, so you can bring it along on all your adventures.

Here you’ll find the popular Ultrafeed LS-1 and Ultrafeed LSZ-1 models. You can choose which model sewing machine has the sewing capabilities best suited to your projects. The blue LSZ-1 is a straight and zigzag stitch sewing machine while the red LS-1 is a heavy-duty straight stitch only sewing machine. Both Ultrafeed models are strong enough to stitch through denim, sailcloth, heavy canvas, upholstery fabrics, vinyl, webbing, soft leather, window material, curtain fabrics, Sew Foam and more. In fact, these machines are known for their ability to easily sew through multiple layers of thick fabrics and are consistently ranked as a top choice heavy-duty sewing machine for canvaswork, sailmaking and sail repair.
