Things to Know

We've designed our sail kits to be easy to assemble.

All panels arrive precut, labeled and numbered and come with detailed step-by-step instructions. Seaming and hemming lines are plotted on each panel and double-sided tape is included to hold panels together during construction. Best of all, Sailrite's expert staff will help guide you through the ordering and construction process.

Our sail kits are designed and plotted using state-of-the-art equipment.

Each sail is custom designed for maximum performance with the draft, twist, entry and exit curves carefully calculated, controlled and positioned on each sail. In addition, we use only the highest quality materials from brands such as Bainbridge, Challenge and Contender.
