Sail Design and Manufacturing – Sails are designed by Mike Boston of Ullman Detroit using the Smar-Azure sail design software program. They are manufactured in-house as well as in the Ullman Sails state of the art factory in South Africa.
Technology is at the core of the Ullman Sails product lines and extends from the design office to the lamination floor and on to the finishing department. We continue to vigorously push the development of existing technologies and evaluate new technologies that will make the sailing experience better for our customers.
ULLMAN SAILS TECHNICAL TEAM
Headed by our Head of Technical Development, Brad Stephens, the Ullman Sails Technical Team is a collection of the top technical minds, sailors and sailmakers in the Ullman Sails group. This collaborative approach allows Ullman Sails to evaluate and implement improvements to our existing products based on practical feedback from the loft floor, countless hours on the water and valuable input from customers. This same collection of minds also provides unique insights into the potential of new technologies that will make a difference for our racing and cruising customers alike.
