With exemplary service and support, whether your boat is 20' or 200' and whether your goal is to win regattas or to circle the globe, Hood Sailmakers is there for you. In the last 60 years, no other sailmaker has contributed as much to the design and direction of sails and sailcloth as Hood Sailmakers.
