Fehmarn & Wilhelmshaven Added to the Roster of Certified Service Lofts

North Sails is committed to providing its customers with high-quality service, professional repairs, and maintenance on-site at any time or place. Through two new locations in Fehmarn and Wilhelmshaven, we have gained further experienced partners.

“We are looking forward to the cooperation and are sure that we have found an optimal extension of our distribution network in Germany with both locations,” comments Stefan Matschuck, Sales Manager of North Sails Germany.


Coast Sails is partnering with North Sails to provide a Certified Service presence in the north-east of Germany. Since 2015, the team of sailmakers at Coast Sails provide expertise in sail and tarpaulin repairs, rigging, and yacht services.

“With North Sails on Fehmarn, we are creating more proximity to our customers in the north-east by offering them an even more comprehensive sailing service directly on-site”, reports Stefan.

Managing Director of Coast Sails, Martin Jannsen, holds the 2011 X-99 World Championship title and sailed as part of the Heizkörper Match Race Team; currently the best German team in the world ranking.

“The incentive of first-class customer service connects Coast Sails with North Sails,” Jannsen explains. “North Sails is a market leader in technology, logistics, and quality. In the first years of my self-employment, I learned how important it is to have strong and reliable partners who share the same goals. In North Sails, I have found this partner”.


Jade Yachting and North Sails have partnered to provide another experienced and professional service location in Wilhelmshaven.

“At North Sails, the international network of experts and the broad range of knowledge is a huge advantage. Together with the innovative ideas for the cruising sector, we are able to offer our customers tailor-made products,”, comments Jade Yachting Managing Directors, Tobias Schadewaldt and Hendrik Kohrs.
