Marine Canvas Fabrication
Ocean Sails has broken into the international market for the top quality custom canvas and upholstery produced in our Water Street Shop. We have upholstered and custom covered some of the finest yachts in the world, and have built a reputation as the preferred choice for yacht owners, both sail and power.
Sunbrella is a solution dyed acrylic fabric that locks in color keeping it vibrant under the elements and repels water. It is a breathable and translucent fabric both of which are desirable characteristics. Sunbrella offers an extensive collection of colors and styles whereas the Stamoid vinyls and PVCs are limited to color choices but are excellent fabrics and used in a wide variety of applications where a water proof fabric is desired.
"Production line" canvas and upholstered products are available. However, these products are generally produced with inferior fabrics and hardware and are not built to last; cutting corners to sell a cheaper product.
Ocean Sails continually seeks to expand our knowledge on building a better product using the best available fabric and hardware. Being members of the Industrial Fabrics Association International allows us to maintain this knowledge and be on the cutting edge of technology.
At Ocean Sails we proudly stand behind our work and the products we use.
