Confident Sailors Sail HOOD

For over 55 years HOOD sails have been the sails of choice for sailors seeking performance, durability and VALUE. From modest beginnings in the basement of his house in Marblehead in the early 1950’s, Ted Hood developed not only fast, durable sails, but invented the machinery to make the cloth that he used to make these sails. In true Yankee fashion, Hood also wanted value in his purchases and so did the local sailors who were his first customers. Today, HOOD Sailmakers continues Ted’s tradition of designing, engineering and building sails that offer the best VALUE around the world. Below, you can learn about the process that goes into making your HOOD sail, a sail that will deliver you VALUE for years to come.
