Latell Sailmakers is now part of the Evolution Sails group!

Evolution Sails Chesapeake is the only full production sail loft in the MidAtlantic region.  Our independently owned loft is located in Deltaville, VA with satellite offices in Hampton, VA and Edgewater, MD, serving sailors along the east coast for over 40 years.

Using the latest sail design software coupled with an in-house automated cutting system, we produce top quality computer cut sails.  Our loft has built paneled sails for decades and we are now finishing membrane sails that are laminated in the Evolution New Zealand loft.  We are also one of only a handful of lofts in the US that builds tall ship sails and authentic traditional sails.

Our loft has the machinery, expertise, and loft space to build and repair sails with luff lengths up to 90’.

We repair any brand, type, or size sail.  Sail and canvas washing is another service that we provide with a quick turnaround in our own dedicated facility.
