Sails Matching your purse and your purpose...
In terms of prices, you’ll find Kemp sails are neither the cheapest nor the most expensive but, when it comes to value for money, we honestly believe they’re hard to beat. When you’ve read through the literature, discussed your needs with us and compared our quote on a like-for-like basis with other sailmakers, we hope you’ll agree.
 
Sails Helping you make the right choice
We understand that the choice of panel layouts and cloth types can seem bewildering when you’re buying new sails - particularly at a time of rapidly advancing technology and an ever-increasing number of brand names for fibres and fabrics. We don’t want to blind you with science - and neither do we expect you to become expert in the intricacies of sailmaking - but the more you understand about why we’ve suggested a particular cut or cloth, the better. That way, you’ll be able to make a more informed choice - and, equally importantly, you’ll also derive more pleasure and satisfaction from your sailing. Of course, giving you the information you need to make the right decision is part of our job. Nonetheless, a little extra knowledge on your part can make all the difference when it comes to sail use and maintenance.

For example, although we’ll make sure the measurements are correct so the sail fits, even the best made sail won’t set itself! Sometimes reefing points may need to be moved along the boom or Genoa sheeting positions adjusted on the track. Once again, we’ll help with practical trimming and tuning advice - but, to get the best performance from any new sail, you’ll need to spend a little time trying different settings to see what works best.
 
Sails Cutting our cloth to suit your pocket
Whether we suggest a cross-cut or radial sail, made from Dacron or laminated cloth, depends on any number of factors - like boat size, whether you race or cruise (or both), the rig’s aspect ratio and how much money you’re planning to spend. We’ve divided our sails into a number of different ranges:

- Coastal / Supercruise
- Performance Cruising
- Performance Cruising Premium
- Performance Cruisemaster
- Performance Racing

Between them, they cover the needs of everyone from round-the-cans and offshore racers to long-distance, blue-water cruising sailors. Whichever range you choose from, the sail’s shape will be the same - the differences are in the material, method of construction, hardware (like battens and rings) and finishing details. Another factor that remains constant is our commitment to after-sales service: we invite all our UK customers to return their sails to our loft for a free first year inspection. This gives us the chance to ensure the sail is wearing as it should - and, if it isn’t, to do something about it. Naturally, any other damage or normal wear-and-tear can be treated at the same time, combined with a wash and valet if you choose.

Whether you cruise, race or just enjoy being out on the water, our aim is to supply you with the best sails for your boat, your budget and your style of sailing.
