Catsails are specialist manufacturers of sails and accessories for performance radio controlled model yachts.
Catsails go travelling! The Sail Loft will be closed for production from 9th – 29th April as we go to the DF95 European event in Lake Garda, and then take a couple of weeks break in the campervan. Any orders that have been confirmed for this week will be completed and posted. New orders will be produced on our return. Orders can be placed as normal through the website shop. PS no need to worry about Fizz the Sail Loft cat, as he will have his own personal housesitter and all his needs catered for!
Proprietor Nigel Brown has been sailmaking since 1980 and has worked in some of the top sail lofts across the World including building sails for 4 America’s Cup programmes.
Years of sailmaking experience at the highest level combined with the best materials, high standards of workmanship and attention to detail have resulted in truly top quality products that are well proven on racecourses around the world. All mainsails and jibs are shaped using carefully milled moulds which ensures accurate repetition and consistency of shapes from one sail to the next.
Nigel has been building sails for the International One Metre since 2005 with sail shapes and construction techniques being continually refined ever since. IOM sails are well proven on the race circuits having won races and regattas in Spain, Italy and Malta as well as in the UK.
In 2012 the range was extended to include sails for the popular Micro Magic class that instantly received great acclaim.
When the DragonForce 65 was launched in 2013 and the DragonFlite95 in 2016 Catsails soon became one of the leading suppliers of after market sails for these popular boats and they are now shipped all around the world and have powered boats to national titles in a number of different countries.
Catsails additionally make high performance sails for the RG65 class to fit both swing and conventional rigs.
Catsails also make custom accessories that are designed to protect boats, rigs and foils whilst the boats are out of the water.
