Master Sails by Elvstrøm Sails
Master Sails by Elvstrøm Sails

Finding the best sail is not always easy. A historic sailmaker, Elvstrøm Sails founded by the great Paul Elvstrøm, recommends the best sail according to one’s needs for both cruising and racing boats. Sails are the engine of the boat and are made from the highest quality materials that can really make a difference in performance.

Elvstrøm Sails – Racing Sails? Perfect for cruising as well!

If you are looking for a sail that is not only suitable for racing but also for cruising, the solution is Marin by Elvstrøm Sails. Assured performance but also great strength and durability, these are sails designed with EPEX layout, which ensures optimal fiber distribution and a strong and stable sail. The material chosen  for the outer layers of this sail is taffeta, available in different weights and in combination with Vectran/Technora fibers. High resistance to rubbing, tearing, bending, and UV rays are among the main features of the Marin sail.

Alisio, the ultra-strong range

Among the sails produced there is also Alisio, that is, the range designed to last a long time in perfect “hygge” style , a typical Danish word for a state of mind related to the concept of comfort, safety, coziness and familiarity. All with an eye toward cost containment. But a cheap sail does not mean “cheap.” Thanks to your choice of a tightly woven dacron/polyester fabric withcross-cut construction, and the full horizontal mainsail battens that help keep the shape when you lower the sail with lazy jack and lazy bag, you won’t have to worry about a thing.
