Lofts >


Based on the River Orwell on the east coast of the UK, the OneSails GBR (East) loft has over 150 years’ collective sail and cover making experience.
In-house services include the design and manufacture of new sails, sail repairs and alterations, local sail bending on and off, local drop off and collection, as well as custom covers and upholstery. Having worked on projects ranging from Vendée Globe campaigns and superyachts, to local cruising and racing yachts, the team is well-equipped to deliver effective solutions for boats of all shapes and sizes.

Headed up by experienced sailmaker John Parker, the team offers a balance of highly skilled professionals mentoring the next generation of sail and cover makers. Passionate about being out on the water, the GBR East team offers honest, first-hand advice based on professional expertise and their own racing and cruising experience.

Adjacent to the GBR East loft is Evolution Rigging, a full-service rigging company working alongside the sail making team on collaborative projects. Located at Suffolk Yacht Harbour, the loft also benefits from the facilities and services onsite at a large marina and boatyard.
