North Sails for Classic Yachts

Classic yachts are a window to the past. Classic yacht sails add to the traditional look and beauty of a bygone era, which appeals to any sailor. Classic yacht owners and crew are caretakers of each yacht’s unique history, and coupled with their respect for tradition is a competitive spirit that is seen in classic yacht racing around the world. Discriminating owners vie for honors in both performance and elegance. North Sails celebrates these classic yachts with a dedicated range of products and a team of experts.

Our Classic experts aim to innovate the past with a modern approach to traditional sails. North Classic sails are high performance, manufactured from woven sailcloth, with a traditional craftsmanship look.

Because Classic sails are limited by their use of materials, improvement comes through better sail shape and construction. Intricate rigs and rigging make Classic sails more complex build. Utilizing the North Design Suite, designers are able to create 3D models of a yacht to better understand how a sail will fit the rig geometry.  The combination of specialized Classic sail designers and their use of the powerful design software produces improved performance while respecting the Classic aesthetic.

Each Classic yacht has its own story. By researching historical records to reproduce the look and understanding traditional techniques of how sails were made, our dedicated Classics sail experts are able to innovate the past and bring Classics back to life.
