Sails Designed to Perform, Built to Last
Hood Sailmakers specialise in building high-performance, long-lasting
sails for serious cruising yachts, classic yachts, short-handed racing
and one-designs that mandate woven sailcloth. Hood are the only sailmakers who weave their own sailcloth and, for more
than 60 years, Hood sailcloth has been renowned for its quality and performance. Hood polyester sailcloth is distinguished by its
use of high-tenacity yarns, tight weave and a minimum of finishing.
Hood Vektron™ sailcloth incorporates fill Vektran®
yarns giving performance equivalent to laminates but with superior durability and longevity.
Today Hood sailcloth is woven in Clonakilty, County Cork, Ireland and supplied to Hood Lofts and select partners around the world.
