Welcome to Hyde Sails Kent
Like many of the successful sail lofts in the world, Hyde Sails grew from racing and in particular racing one-design
dinghies. The need to eke out small differences in performance between identical boats imposes values of quality and discipline
in the manufacture of sails that are not so important in other branches of sailmaking. But the challenge of making sails of
exactly the right shape, with top class materials and faultless craftsmanship permeates through all the sails we make from
racing yacht to old gaffer.
We make around 40000 sails per
year from our modern ( and crucially, wholly owned ) factory in the far east. Our 235 staff are highly trained , well paid
and directed from the UK where our management ,sales and R&D functions are based in two offices, one at Hamble and one
Our sails are made out of the best materials obtained
at the most competitive prices so that we are able to offer quality sails with extraordinary craftsmanship at prices that
are keen but not unrealistically cheap. With sailmaking you tend to get what you pay for but there is no need to pay over
the odds to get quality sails - we do not promise the cheapest sails, but we promise the best quality at the best price with
the best designs and the best materials.
If those sound like
the sort of sails you are looking for, whatever your type of boat, then contact us and we will be delighted to discuss your
needs and provide you with a no-obligation quote.
