The recent explosion in SuperYachts has, in part, been fueled by sail technology developed by North Sails. As pioneers in lightweight, low-stretch sail fabrics and 3-dimensionally molded sail technology, we have applied our unique technology and expertise to making big-boat sails that are significantly lighter, stronger and more durable. The result... large yachts that are as responsive and manageable as boats half their size. Big boats previously built for luxury, comfort and prestige now perform.
We have worked very cloasely with Southern Spars and J/Boats to develop a set of sails that will deliver top performance, ease of use and longevity. Using the North Design Suite (NDS) we have modeled and flown the sails on a loaded sail plan to simulate actual sailing conditions. By running iteration after iteration we have been able to fine-tune the design of these sails.
