Customer supplied testimonials and reviews on Moatt Sails’ sails and customer service

 Huge thanks to Richard and the team at Moatt for our new Genoa; beautifully made, it is a delight and we are very happy with it.

Richard led us patiently and confidently through the myriad technical aspects and options to a solution that is exactly right for our Wauquiez Pretorien 35.

Not only did Richard handle the fitting but very kindly offered to accompany me on my (would be) solo inaugural trip back to Dartmouth from Portland – and gave a masterclass in sail handling and trim to this rusty protagonist.

Thanks too to Sam and the team for all the good works on the canvas covers.



….the spinnaker is absolutely great and has opened up a whole new ability to sail where we want in light winds. Very pleased with it indeed. We’ve had several really good and long (3 or 4 hours) spinnaker runs up the coast. 


Dear Richard

 We collected the sail last night and fitted it this morning.
Having just returned from an inaugural sail I can report we are delighted with the results.  She is pointing much better than we have previously experienced it fits perfectly.
Thank you for a great job.
Kind regards

Thank you very much for giving up your afternoon and evening to talk to us. I hope you got back home safely.


For my part, I thoroughly enjoyed your talk, and appreciated the preparation you made. I suspect as I speak to other people there, the feedback will be positive indeed. I will pass on any constructive comments I get.


I am quite sure that you will have served the purpose of raising the profile of Moatt Sails to the CVLSC members;


Many thanks again,

Regards, John

Hi Richard

Good to see you. Thanks for coming to Chew, we Really enjoyed such  an active and interactive evening. Lots of food for thought.

Best wishes



Hello again!

I forgot to complement the sails performance.

Good power, good pointing, and trim well.

I was getting 6 knots close hauled from 12 knots of wind.

Quite an improvement!



THANK YOU Moatt Sails & Rick Bowers for making the small things the big things – my new sails are amazing

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?
