Molded Composite Cruising Sails

3Di OCEAN is a complete product line-up dedicated to and redefining cruising performance. 

As the industry leader, North Sails is at its best when applying energy and resources to developments that eventually reshape a product segment. In 2017 North Sails saw an opportunity to revolutionize the cruising market by re-inventing the traditional woven Dacron cruising sail, the first real cruising material innovation since the 1950s. Award-winning 3Di NORDAC quickly reset the benchmark for cruising performance. North Sails successfully expanded the 3Di sail cruising concept into larger yachts in 2018 with 3Di OCEAN 700. The addition of OCEAN 370 in 2020 is a testament to the brand’s pledge to supporting the cruising market with leading-edge sail technology. 

The use of North innovative and propriety 3Di technology and build process produces sails that are both stronger and easier to use. This technology produces sails that provide an enhanced cruising experience by reducing heel in a breeze and adding power in light air. 3Di Ocean sails are seamless, one-piece sails that are uniquely strong, beautiful, and long-lasting. This means enhanced safety onboard for you, your friends, and your family. Simply put, a more enjoyable sailing experience.
