Heading up the new loft will be Nick Bonner & Rob Larke, well-known in the sailing industry from dinghies to superyachts. Both are highly regarded sail makers and sailors in the Solent with 25 years in the industry ranging from design and sail development to hands on finishing and sail making. Nick and Rob have won numerous titles, including National, European and World championships, from Supermaxi yachts to high performance dinghies.
“There is no comparison between the old and the new loft.” commented Nick Bonner. “The big difference is that we now have the capacity to work on bigger sails and still have room on the loft floor to work on other projects. The raised floor is about the size of four tennis courts, so we can take on time-dependent projects, without interfering with our planned production and sail servicing.
