Welcome to Moatt Sails.

We are are a Portland based sailmaker making result proven fast, racing sails as well as cruising sails to suit all budgets. We offer an extensive yacht sail repair service along the south coast of England from Poole to Plymouth. We pride ourselves on our customer service, well designed, beautifully built sails, and carefully crafted canvas products of all types.

What our customers say:

I have been extremely pleased with both the service and the product from Moatt Sails. Really expert, friendly, advice provided as to the best cut and configuration for a new set of sails for my rather unique old 37-foot ketch, and then a super set of sails delivered on schedule and on budget. On-board fine-tuning during ‘sea trials’ and continuing after-sales service, with speedy resolution of a minor snag. The new sails have made a remarkable difference to the boat’s performance. What more could you hope for?

P.B., Dorset & Scotland.
