Sail Technology to Ensure Your Super Yacht Super Performs.
Recent years have seen bigger and bigger yachts push technology to the limits to create super yachts that sail as responsively and rapidly as their smaller race-bred cousins.
Sail making has taken giant leaps in order to create sails that power this new generation of super racer-cruisers in a way that satisfies owners looking for peak performance.
Quantum's Fusion M® membrane sails provide a more stable foil profile, resulting in better light wind performance and acceleration,
with improved shape retention as the wind increases.
Fusion M® sails are made using the most technically advanced design, lamination and shaping methods in the industry.
Known as iQ Technology®, our integrated and proprietary process results in sail shapes that are fast, efficient and infinitely repeatable,
a feat no other sail maker can match. Learn more about iQ® Technology here.
Obviously the larger the sail, the heavier it gets, so a primary consideration for super yachts is the sailcloth. A Fusion M®
sail is approximately 15-20 percent lighter than an equivalent conventional panel sail, with greatly improved stretch resistance and shape retention. Headboards and fittings have undergone
some serious rethinking as well, with new available shapes and materials offering improved strength, lightness and durability. To see images of
