Evolution Sails has been the local sail loft of choice supporting local sailors and cruisers visiting the Gold Coast for more than 30 years.
Located centrally on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Evolution Sails provide a full design, manufacture and service loft . Our experienced sailmakers specialise in cruising and racing sails for yachts, catamarans, sports-boats and dinghies.

Complimenting our full range of service are Boom bag stack-packs, boom covers, trampolines, rope and chandlery.
Cruising sails have evolved in exciting ways and you now have more options than ever before.
From Wovens like Dacron and Pro-Radial, to Laminates; we can custom design the right sail for your needs.
If you have not purchased a new cruising sail recently, we can discuss all the pros and cons of all latest materials and features with you such as:
Individual, personalised Sail design file
Crosscut or Tri-radial cut using Premium Dacron, Pro-Radial or Laminate sail cloth
Seams three rows zig-zag stitching with UV stabilised thread
Stainless steel rings reinforced with webbing
Extra heavy radial patches
Twin plyed Leech for reefing points
Extra large or double tapes with a minimum of 2 stitching rows
Heavy duty batten pockets with Velcro lock or tie in type
Alloy headboards and luff hardware
Low stretch leech line with Clam Cleat, and foot lines
Two draft stripes for visual reference of draft position
Sail Numbers or logo
Leech ribbons and tell-tales
Our custom sails come with everything fitted, or we can use existing hardware.
We will spend the time on site to measure up and install the sail correctly; fitting reefing lines and ensuring the sail is perfect for the rig and boat.
No job is too small & you get the same personal service that we supply with all our work.
Rips & tears
We have a selection of machines including our brand new, large Cordes Machine, no job is too large or too small.
We can offer a full service of your sails before you set off on that big trip, including replacing UV strips and the supplying and fitting of Pro Furl, Bartel or Ronstan furlers.
Being an independent sailmaker means that our survival relies on satisfying you, the customer. Most of our business comes from word of mouth or repeat customers so every time we make a sail we endeavour to produce a superior sail with the best back-up service.
Custom made including pockets, cut-outs and jib sheeting
Cut on bias 45°which allows easier installation/removal and results in a taut finish
Ferrari material in black or grey
Patch reinforcing to prevent tearing
