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, covers and marine upholstery.

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.
