woven sailcloth / cruising / Vectran®
Classic Yachts, whether they race or not, deserve sails that perform and preserve the yacht’s timeless elegance. Using HOOD’s proprietary Vektron™ sailcloth, HOOD sail-designers and craftsmen sailmakers will build sails for your classic yacht that mimic the appearance of traditional sailcloth but perform like modern laminates.
HOOD Sail Experts and master craftsmen sailmakers have an enormous wealth of experience in specifying, designing, building and setting-up sails for classic yachts from 30-200′. We work closely with owners, skipper, mast builders, manufacturers of sail-handling systems and, for new builds, the designer, to ensure that the sails we design and build for your classic yacht will:
Deliver optimum performance
Enhance the beauty and value of your yacht
Retain their shape for many years
