Multihull Cruising Upwind Sails

Fusion M® Sails

Fusion M® Sail Construction

Quantum Sails is the first sailmaker to offer a complete range of composite sails with membrane construction specifically for cruising sailors. Quantum’s Fusion M® sails are developed using the most technically advanced design, lamination, and shaping methods in the industry—a proprietary process known as iQ Technology®. Fusion M® cruising sails are fast, easy to handle, efficient, and capable of taking you across the bay or around the world.

Better Boat Handling with a Better Sail Shape

Fusion M® sails are engineered as full-size membranes and designed with a fully-integrated, custom fiber network that addresses sail loading in all directions rather than along primary load paths only. The ideal sail shapes are custom-designed by Quantum’s experienced sail designers based on expected usage and boat-specific constraints such as mast bend, displacement and righting moment. The resulting sail shapes last longer and are easy to trim through a wide range of conditions.

Longevity & Repeatability

Our two-step lamination process results in a superior membrane that delivers a longer life compared to laminates made by single-step methods. Sail panels are completely cured before the shaping process begins, eliminating the effects of shrinkage and guaranteeing shape repeatability.

Lightweight Fiber Options For All Needs

Multiple fiber options are offered for Fusion M® sails, providing a range of options for different size boats and sailing requirements. Quantum’s sail consultants can help you make the right selection based on your needs.
