Our sail designer has decades of experience and helped shape one of the most popular sail design software programs. He has designed sails for lofts worldwide. He grew up in sailmaking and he is one of the few people we know who can expertly design sails on a computer or with a lofting batten on the floor. We are passionate about sail design and we make it a point to supply detailed drawings and specifics to our valued customers before any cloth is cut. We want to make sure we are interpreting your requirements the way you envision them. Best of all, you have the kind of experienced designer that at many lofts would only be designing for VIP clients. At Island Planet Sails, every customer is a VIP.
