James Lawrence Sailmakers

We have designed and manufactured sails and rigging for a wide range of traditional and modern vessels. 

Our sails and rigging can be found around the globe on training ships, square riggers in feature films, charter ships and luxury classics.

Nearer home, our sails are powering everything from Colne Smacks, Thames Barges and the winners of Old Gaffer Races to the smallest Luggers. There are even a few Junk rigged boats wearing our sails.

James (Jimmy) Lawrence Sailmakers - craftsmen!

Our Sailmakers can help you with rig changes, improvements, new designs and most aspects of sail performance.

James lawrence Sailmakers Traditional sails, Gaff guru

We use traditional techniques and materials and combine them where necessary with modern materials and equipment to produce the finest sails and rigging for your application.

Many of our commissions start with a visit to your boat. We will discuss your requirements and make the measurements that we require. If necessary, we often will sail with you and make more measurements.

 

We also produce spray hoods, dodgers, cushions, flags, net sails, boat covers and industrial covers.

Call us with your requirements.
