Service from Palma to French Polynesia
When a sail is 700 metres square with a weight in excess of 500 kgs, you can imagine the incredible pressures that creates on the mast, and when things go wrong, they can go horribly wrong. Sail with confidence, our highest levels of service stem from a global hand-picked network of lofts and partners around the world that have the skills necessary to ensure you’ll have the best sails aboard your boat. We understand the loads and handling requirements associated specifically with large sails. Wherever you are in the world we can arrange for service repairs. Because when the loads are high, getting everything right matters the most.

Our recent super yacht projects
CQS – 100ft Bakewell -White Super Maxi
CQS is the result of a massive refit of the previously 90ft yacht Nicorette. The technical innovations that have been incorporated push the limits of thepresent yacht design. CQS features a radical new bow shape and forward section, and lateral “wings” to support the much more powerful new rig. The maximum width is then carried all the way to the transom to widen the sheeting angles and maximize the use of the crew weight for stability.
In addition to the canting keel, CQS has a DSS aqua foil system, which uses a sliding board that runs across the boat for one side to the other, and protrudes from the hull just below the waterline. The board is deployed on the leeward, or downwind, side of the boat to give lift and added stability. The hull, in effect, becomes like an aeroplane with one wing. Evolution sails is proud to have been actively part of the boat development and have supplied all the sail inventory.
Cavallo – Baltic 141
Launched in 2003, Cavallo is a majestic 43-metre sloop, built in composite by the prestigious Finnish shipyard, Baltic Yachts. Luxury sailing yacht Cavallo features exterior design by the yard’s in-house team and Judel/Vrolijk, while her interior design is by John Munford.
All upwind sails on Cavallo are Evolution Sails Expedition Membranes.

Jacquelina – 87ft Bill-Dixon
Jacquelina is an 87′ Bill Dixon-designed cruising sloop that just underwent a rig modification from the previous Aerorig. The new set of upwind sails include a Square Top mainsail and an overlapping furling jib, which are both Evolution Sails Expedition Membranes.
