The passionate and highly demanding race sailor Till Hagelstein came up with the idea to building an online sail-making business when he had to renew the “wardrobe” for his yacht. Since this type of expenditure comes up every two years, he came to the realisation that a true “value-for-money” proposition was missing in this highly fragmented market. Soon after that he took it upon him to build his business. As an experienced glider pilot he was equipped with all the knowledge associated with wind power and the characteristics of wing based airfoils. The idea was born!
In 2006 Till established the first exclusive internet based sail maker and therefore branded it “PrimeSails”.
Till was aware of a well established manufacturing plant, which had been producing sails based on the latest technologies for 20 years. He established contact and soon after that production started. This allowed Till to produce top quality sails meeting the standards of international classes, the requirements of demanding cruiser sailors as well as high-end racing needs, while not being a massive drain on budgets.
PrimeSails uses leading design software to design and create every single sail. Dedicated and highly specialised production facilities guarantee the consistently convincing quality; processing high quality branded sail cloths.
Since inception, PrimeSails has enjoyed an ever-growing number of loyal, happy and satisfied customers.
Our outlook is to continue operating at the forefront of advances in technology, which shall continue to be at the core of our business and which we shall always endeavour to let you, our client, profit from it on the water!
Your PrimeSails team.
