ITS NEVER TO EARLY TO GO GREY …
Increasingly as owner’s colour schemes for their yachts have developed there has been a call for an alternative colour from the standard white sail fabric. As a result, in line with our continuing product development we have listened to our customer’s requirements and over the winter months Dolphin Sails have been working with Dimension Polyant, our main cloth supplier, to produce a Grey version of the well proven DYS Dyneema cruise laminate. This new fabric is unique in that the taffetas are now woven with different colour yarns to give the grey colour rather than dying an existing white taffeta Grey. This process gives a more constant colour throughout the sail rather than the slight colour differences that can result with dyed fabrics.
The first set of grey sails have been supplied to the newly launched Oyster 575, as you can see from the photos taken during a sea trial it will certainly make your yacht stand out.
We have ordered a large quantity of the Grey DYS Dyneema in fabric weights to suit yachts up to and including the 62’ footer. Orders for yachts over 65’ will require a special order with a longer lead time.
This brings another element into effect while deciding on the theme for your new or existing boat, the choice of should you go for the new grey or traditional white…..
