Luders sailing in front of Port Townsend

Sean Rankins has been designing, building, and finishing sails since 1976.

“As a custom sail loft, all of our sails are built in our loft located on the Olympic Peninsula, on Port Townsend bay, in Washington state.

We are a full service sail loft offering new sails, repairs, alterations, and all upgrades to your sails and sailing systems. NW Sails specializes in all levels of sail making design and construction. We have a long history of designing and finishing very traditional sails using only the most tried and true practices in design and handwork, using only custom fabrics best suited for this family of sails. We also design and build very modern sails fabricated with the most state of the art materials, for either offshore or inshore, racing or day sailing.

It is our pleasure to work with you to design and build the most efficient and beautiful sails for your boat. Contact us for free consultations for your sailing needs, bids, or other pricing details.”
