Sails for Racing, Cruising, One Design
& Classic Yachts

Our aim is simple: To make the best performing, highest calibre, most affordable sails. Based near the waterfront at Lymington, Hampshire, Sanders is a sailmaker with distinction - offering fast turnaround times, excellent service and expert advice.

Our knowledgable team pays attention to every detail, using materials ranging from traditional woven fabrics to the very latest custom carbon membranes. We have a separate department for sail repairs and in the winter we can wash and overhaul your sails before storing them in our heated premises until the start of the new season.

A family run company established in 1974 by Managing Director Peter Sanders, it currently employs more than 20 people and is now leading the way in making first class sails and covers.

Congratulations to our two winners: Colin King and Jo Williams! We will send you a private message shortly with details and whether or not we need to send them to you in the post. We have lots of competitions coming up, so please keep liking and sharing and watching this space.

"Donation puts wind in food bank's sails"


All charities, of any size, are incredibly important to so many vulnerable families - reaching out a hand to our local communities and sometimes the greater national population. One such charity, is that of the "New Forest Basics Bank", located in Lymington, to help those in need despite a 'break in' last December.

This incident, albeit despicable, brought awareness to us of the incredible volunteers who are giving up their time and money to support the most vulnerable in the New Forest catchment. As a company we were shocked that there was such a high need for this help and we were desperate to pass on our support to this cause. You can read the latest article by Roz Waters on the link below or buy the New Milton Advertiser Lymington Times newspaper (page 15).

Have you ever wondered how we make some of the bigger sails in our loft?

Here is a short film of a mainsail being made for a Challenge 72 right here in Lymington, which we were able to ship off, hot off the press, ready for the ARC Atlantic Rally for Cruisers.
