Sailmakers in United Arab Emirates

Hi all,

I am looking for a sail maker to possibly make a new set of cruising sails, or to repair the old sails if possible, in the United Arab Emirates. I havnt had much luck so far, so any information would be much appreciated.

Any information on surveyors in this area would also be very helpful.

Re: Sailmakers in United Arab Emirates

Brian Hooper from ULO used to take care of all our sails when we were in Kuwait. However, they stopped their sail loft, even tho I believe the company is still there. After that we started using Rolly Tasker in Thailand for making sails. His prices sort of offset the shipping costs a little, and he does a good job.

Repairs, I'm afraid, had to be done ourselves, or taken in a suitcase further afield.
