I want you to know my total satisfaction with the sail... The sailmaking seems superior in all aspects for a sail of this type.”Greg A, Hughes 38
Island Planet Sails is justifiably proud of its sail design team and manufacturing partners. Great sails start with great designs. Our designer has decades of sailmaking and design experience. We use design programs like SMSW and Azure for most of our design needs. We have also used Sail Pack, which was created for the Luna Rossa America's Cup campaign. Our customers are welcome to request a grahic rendering of their sail prior to construction. There are some renderings of customer sails on our Facebook page, which is accessible from our home page.
Design is only part of the equation. Without the proper base material a sail is bound to disappoint. We encourage customers to ask questions about cloth choices. Cloth used in our sails undergoes stringent acceptance testing at our production loft. Nothing is left to chance. Under no circumstances do we use seconds or other manufacturer rejected sailcloth. Our cloth is sourced from well regarded manufacturers like Bainbridge, Challenge, and Dimension Polyant.
Island Planet Sails has a highly efficient low overhead business model and spends little on advertising. Glossy magazines ads cost a lot of money. Who pays for them ultimately? Salaries for professional sailors employed by sailmakers helping millionaires win bragging rights is absorbed by customers of that sailmaker. Who pays for that?
