Aerodynamics, performance, durability, elegance.
Already since 1979, these are the four cardinal points and values for Zaoli Sails in order to always seek the best performance for the realization of the sails. I doesn’t matter for which boat type and use, from racing to cruising, from classic yachts to Maxi Yachts, from One Design to long ocean voyages.
Each sail is made with the most advanced technologies to give the finished product the most effective performance, but still with craftsmanship of those respects and the understanding of the specific needs of each customer.
Beppe Zaoli, founder of the sail loft, competing internationally, has merged his technical information, resulting from experience on the race course, from architecture companies, actual work at the loft, with a passion for the sea. His dream of having his own sail loft, where he can apply his extensive experience and pass it on to all its employees, was achieved first in Sanremo, then in Ospedaletti, .
The Zaoli Sails was born, the production of first one-design sails for Snipe and J24 was followed step by step for other classes. A big step forward has been achieved with the improvement of the sail cloth, which are manufactured according to specific requirements of ships, like a tailored suit. This allows not only to improve the performance of the sails, but also to create unique products that fit perfectly to the typical characteristics of each boat.
The constant research has allowed us to identify new solutions and new products, coming to the manufacture of cloth, which today are only four sail makers worldwide.
From ’79 to Zaoli Sails today, founded as a small workshop, it has completely transformed and has become an important group to clear international vocation, capable of operating in any sector of the sailing world, while keeping on the craft values when It was founded.
Thanks to modern technology development projects and the size of the sail loft (2500 square meters with twenty-six experts sailmakers) the Zaoli Sails is able to provide its customers with fast deliveries – two weeks -, direct assistance in all phases of assembly, tests sea and fine-boat point.
Each sail has a two year warranty and is subject to revision free after this season.
Every single product is designed with sophisticated software and cutted depending on the type with two different plotter.
Every single sail is created on the basis of a single instrument: the passion.
