Southampton Boat Show 2015

Its showtime!

After the outstanding success of our first Southampton Boat Show in 2014 Dolphin Sails will be exhibiting again during this years show. We will be on the same stand as last year- FO28 – which is in Mayflower Park in between Ocean Hall and Windward Hall.

Last year, it was great to see so many of our existing customers and meet so many new people who came along to discuss their plans for new sails and covers. We are really pleased to report that many of those enquiries have been converted into orders with those owners now enjoying their new covers and sails.

If your are looking to buy a new boat or just need ‘a few bits’ you are certain to find what you are looking for during the 2015 Southampton Boat Show.

The Dolphin Team will be available all week so please feel free to come along and see how we can help.

Details of new products and any boat show deals will be announced soon.

To arrange a meeting during the 2015 Southampton Boatshow, which runs from 11th – 20th September, please contact us on

Oyster 56 Tensile Awning

Shade your world!!


The Oyster 56 is latest addition to our extensive list of tensile awning designs. From this we can now supply a perfectly tailored Tensile Awning to suit your 56 wherever she may be kept around the world.

This new design joins a long list of the others that we now have on file to suit the following boats 53, 54, 545, 56, 575, 62, 625, 655, 72 (smart boom), 825, 885 (V Boom). If your boat type is not listed we can always arrange a trip to measure up, depending on the accessibility.

The concept of the over boom tensile awning is to provide weather protection, primarily from sun, for the guests, crew and the boat. Whilst the bimini provides some protection, for most boats the over boom tensile awning offers around 2 ½ times the coverage. The benefits are sun protection for the crew and large portions of the deck whilst providing a noticeable reduction in overall boat temperature. After a short while with the awning in place the air conditioning usually turns itself off. This of course provides a further benefit of reducing generator hours, noise and diesel consumption.

A further advantage of course is protection from rain in less than clement weather, indeed the extra covered space almost acts as a further large social area.

Karver KSF Top Down Furler

Karver Top Down Furler

The setting of ’positive luff’ off wind sails like the Cruising Chute, Asymmetric or Gennaker has been made much easier with the introduction of the Top Down furler. The system is set between the head and tack of the sail with a torsional stay and furls from the head down. It is a quick and easy – watch the video to see how simple it is.

For further details and prices please contact the Loft on 01255 243366 or


Twin Headsail Video

Following on from our very popular video for cruising chutes and furlers we have now released the twin headsail video. This set up is an excellent way to have a very stable sail plan that is very easy to set up.

If after watching the short video you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Jon Sturmer or Matthew Vincent
