Technical expertise backed by on-the-water experience
Since 1985, we’ve been supplying top quality sails for dayboats, cruisers and racing yachts. Designed using state-of-the-art computer software, every sail bearing the Kemp logo is made to the same exacting standards by our experienced sailmakers, whose technical expertise is backed by practical, on-the-water experience.
At Kemp, we believe in blending modern technology with traditional skills and sailmaking theory with a sound knowledge of what really works in practice. That way you can be sure your new sails will not only fit well and enhance your boat’s performance, but also give you many years’ service.
WHY CHOOSE KEMP?
As a cottage industry there will always be somebody offering a ‘low cost alternative’ which can sound attractive…. but normally these offers mean they don’t have the level of infrastructure or machinery that is required to do the job correctly, and sadly it often turns out to be a more costly or dissatisfying experience in the long run
Kemp Sails’ prices are usually keen, but most importantly our service is consistent and dependable …. chances are, we may well exceed your expectations!
