Cloth engineered for sailing cruise ships and tall ships

The sailcloth requirements for large working boats and tall ships are very different from the standard cruiser. Prolonged UV exposure from daily charter service and extended voyages on training ships puts a premium on cloth strength and durability. Our Contender Heavy Weight constructions use 1000 denier and larger yarns in tightly woven constructions for the ultimate tear, chafe, and UV resistance. We finish these constructions with a medium Polypreg finish for a balance of soft hand and bias stability.
