Sail Design and Performance
Learn about the MEERMARK M17 sail design
The M17 sail construction is largely strong, light and stable X-ply laminate with Kevlar and Dacron reinforced corner panels.
Dacron panels and reinforcements are also strategically placed to optimise stability, shape and also longevity.
Battens are epoxy matrix construction offering excellent stability and unrivalled strength and these are tensioned using high end RBS Rocket tensioners.
Performance is important but strength and longevity is vital in the design and construction of our sails. Meermark boats are built to last and require minimal maintenance.
