MORE ENJOYMENT THROUGH BETTER PERFORMANCE
High-quality equipment helps create a high-quality cruising experience, which is why more cruising sailors rely on North Sails than on any other sailmaker in the world. With North Sails, your boat will sail with less heel, less helm, and less leeway, making the sailing faster and more fun for you and your crew.
Advances in sail materials and technology have reduced the weight of cruising sails without sacrificing durability. Well-engineered sails hold their shape longer and extend a sail’s usable lifespan. North Sails controls the entire manufacturing process, so the quality of every mainsail, headsail, code sail, and spinnaker is apparent from the moment you hoist.
Every North cruising sail is custom-designed for your boat and sailing style. Well-engineered sails from refined materials mean better furling and flaking, smoother tacking and jibing, and more efficient sail handling and storage. A properly designed cruising sail will provide the widest possible steering and trimming range, allowing you to cruise with confidence. Whether you are leaving the land behind or simply sharing leisure time with friends and family, North cruising sails can take you where you want to go.
Our new mainsail fit like a glove and flew perfect right out of the bag. On our first sail, we were very fast in all wind speeds. Much better response than the old sail. Achieving boatspeed was definitely easier and more comfortable. We couldn’t be happier.

My dad had North Sails back in 1977 and I can see why you are still in business today. Your North Sails representative was professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you for your knowledgeable staff and great product. I picked up an extra two knots this weekend as a result of my new headsail.

We were early adopters of 3Di Nordac. We have already put 2,500 miles on them, sailing around New Zealand and our mainsail and headsail have stayed in great condition – the shape hasn’t changed at all.
