Sailmaking

At JKA Sailmakers, we make mainsails and genoa’s chiefly in Dacron which is ideally suited for cruising applications. We advise the customer on all parts of the sailmaking process. From the right fabric, the right weight of cloth, and the appropriate design in line with the planned usage of the sails required.

Spinnakers, again made to the exacting requirements of our clients, are typically made in rip stop nylon – light, strong and abrasion resistant.

Products include;

  • Full batten and standard batten Mainsails
  • In mast furling Mainsails
  • Furling Genoas
  • Tri-radial cut Genoas
  • Asymmetric Spinnakers
  • Twin down-wind sails
  • Storm sails

Our services extend to fitting the sail, and sail tuning with the customer.
