Over the past ten years, Hood has attained and consolidated a role as a world leader for the production of racing and cruising sails. A result achieved mainly thanks to two fundamental factors: the superb quality of the sailcloths and the outstanding quality of the finish. Sails are made from Dacron® and Vektron® materials produced in the U.S.A. exclusively for Hood sailmakers around the world.
Particular attention is given to finishings when making and repairing sails: areas most subject to chafing are specially reinforced and all accessories are carefully selected or even produced to our own specifications.
Improving a sailboat's performance is becoming more and more important, even for those who mainly sail on weekends.
Proudly Australian - all our sails are designed and manufactured at our sail loft in Brookvale.

SEAWIND 1190 SPORT
Performance with Comfort - The Seawind 1190 Sport has been developed for sailors looking for performance without compromise on comfort and range. The 1190 is a variant of the popular 1160 cruising range and has been optimised by Francois Perus in collaboration with Alan Carwardine, two of the industry’s leading multihull designers.
”Beneath the illusion of a traditional timber craft, you're really buying a modern fibreglass yacht. And that's fine if you're a wee bit jaded by the me-too look of modern yachts and yearn for something with the character and soul of timber yet not the maintenance.”
On the ring road at Sail Expo, Bluewater Cruising Yachts Pty Ltd will be exhibiting the Bluewater Cygnet 20. Bluewater Cruising Yachts has built a reputation of building strong, safe, comfortable cruising yachts for those that want to cruise extensively and live aboard.
Discover the sheer joy of sailing again – or – for the first time! The easy, safe and forgiving Cygnet 20 is equally perfect for the weekend family sailor or the experienced sailor looking for hands on action once again. This light and fast modern gaffer is an ideal inshore cruiser or club racer.
The Cygnet 20 can be put on a trailer and towed behind the family car giving you freedom to explore inshore bays, pull up to beaches or enjoy quiet anchorages with family or friends. The lifting keel is operated from the cockpit meaning it’s simple to arrive in shallow bays or near the beach.
On the marina, Bluewater Cruising Yachts will also be exhibiting the 420 range of ocean going cruising yachts – the Raised Saloon and Centre Cockpit versions.
The design is founded on the union of strength and performance with a long water line, fine bow, wide stern, and solid glass hull. Power and integrity are demonstrated by the sturdy skeg hung rudder and the integral fibreglass keel, which encases four and a half tonnes of lead. The voluminous bilge provides the generous fuel and water tankage that you need in an ocean cruising yacht.The Bluewater 420 Raised Saloon is designed to be sailed shorthanded, which allows for ultimate safety, agility and speed. All of the control lines return to the safety of the large cockpit and are powered by generously sized winches.
Visit the crew at the show for further information on these quality vessels.

Sails have a relatively short life span and most racing sails have only a few years in them at best, after that they tend to end up in landfill. We don't like that, no one does, which is why we up - cycle them for a new lease of life. Here at SAILORMADE we create handmade bags, wallets and accessories out of recycled sailcloth. We are make all our bags locally, the sails we use are sourced locally, and because each is made from a previously used sail every bag is unique.
We love what we do and hope you will too. - Scott and Sophie
