History

History    For three generations Thurston Sails has delivered quality sails to racing and cruising yachtsmen, charter fleets, and production yacht manufacturers the world over. As a manufacturing loft of the Quantum Sail Design Group since 1997 the Thurston loft can offer you a team of the world's best sail designers and sailors; sailmakers working together to share the best designs, technology, and service. Our 15000 square foot facility features state-of-the-art design and automated cutting tools that can handle any size sail. The people of Thurston are dedicated to providing the kind of personal attention to detail that makes a difference out on the water; to enjoy sailing to the fullest. While technology has brought customers to our doors it is the service we provide that keeps them coming back.

Owner Steve Thurston's experience spans 40 years. From local Narragansett and Buzzards Bay championships to major international regattas, Steve's continued participation has contributed to the development of a superior product. At Thurston, high technology and quality workmanship make the difference.
