Our singular reputation and demonstrated leadership in the sailmaking industry are proven year after year by our customers.
Ullman Sails is supported by one of the largest and most technologically advanced production lofts in the world – Ullman Sails South Africa. The loft employees over 120 trained staff members and has manufactured over 100,000 sails in its 30-year history. Recognized worldwide for its quality standards and expertise, it is sought out to produce top projects that range from a Southern Wind 102’ to world championship-winning J/70 sails.
The loft covers four buildings in two cities (Cape Town and Durban) and includes a state-of-the-art membrane plant, and specialized departments for one design, panelled cruising and racing sails, spinnakers and superyachts. The loft also houses research and development facilities for the Ullman Sails group, providing an ideal platform to merge manufacturing know-how with design, materials and technical development.
SUPERIOR MEMBRANE PRODUCTION
Our state-of-the-art membrane facility in Cape Town is internationally recognized for the superior lamination and precise construction. Great care is taken in the selection of our membrane components from the fibers and glue to the Mylars and taffetas. There is no size restriction on membrane production—the loft has two stringing machines including our ‘long-arm’ machine, which enables us to string sails for any size boat.
UNCOMPROMISING STANDARDS & CONSISTENCY
With the experience of our sailmakers from all corners of the globe and decades on the sail loft floor, Ullman Sails has developed a manual of construction standards by which all Ullman Sails are built that covers every aspect of an Ullman Sails sail. These standards are used group-wide, which means that no matter where your sail is built in the Ullman Sails system, your sail is built to the same quality standards.
