Offshore Sails: (in stock)
Roller Furling / 5.5 Dacron / Foam luff / White UV cover
The ultimate in durability for Dacron sails. Made with premium 5.5 OZ Dacron in a crosscut design for super durability under extreme conditions. Includes a foam luff pad for better shape when reefed, external corner rings with webbing and leather reinforcements, extra telltales, and a White Dacron UV cover. We use a white UV resistant Dacron for the cover, this material provides excellent UV protection but does not add as much weight to the sail as an acrylic (Sunbrella) cover. Acrylic covers are very heavy and change shape differently than the rest of the sail over time so you end up with an intact UV strip that has ruined the shape of an otherwise healthy sail. These sails are quite heavy and stiff to handle and are, quite frankly, overkill for most Mac sailors. If you feel you want this level of strength and durability, you should strongly consider our Custom sails which use laminate cloth that is both stronger and easier to handle.
