Gambell and Hunter has specialized in making high quality traditional sails for more than 30 years. We carefully consider your boat's requirements, and make the effort to match the appropriate sailcloth and hardware to your needs.  We give our customers a range of options regarding colors and finish. We’re always ready to help you make the choices that can affect performance, durability or even historical accuracy.

Large traditional vessels, coastal and offshore cruising boats, as well as all varieties of small sailing craft have been outfitted with our sails.  We swage and hand splice standing rigging and lifelines, and can help you with your running rigging. 

When you call or write us, you'll be dealing directly with the people who will be making your sails, from start to finish.  Regardless of the size of the project, we'll spend the time it takes to plan and fabricate the sails you want.
