Cross Cut Half-Batten Mainsail:
Economical type of construction for boaters looking for a good compromise between price and longevity. We have selected the AP of CONTENDER for its Polypreg finish ensuring a very good longevity to the fabric.
The Strengths of a Cross Cut Half-Batten Mainsail:
- The price
- Durability thanks to the polypreg finishing of CONTENDER fabrics
- Horizontal slats facilitate handling during reefing and shifting.
- Leech of the sail much better held than on a classic sail.
Drawing on CAD software and cutting of the widths by digital machine in our workshop.
Width assembly: 2 zig-zag seams (6 stitches) in white (or gray of choice) anti-UV.
Star reinforcements. Bands of reinforcements placed on the leech, the foot and the luff in order to avoid the deformations due to the important forces on these parts of the sail

- Fabric CONTENDER Fibercon® Pro Vectran:
This fabric combines the high-quality characteristics of Fibercon® yarns with the exceptional stretch resistance and flexibility of adding Vectran yarns.
We recommend a firm Polypreg finish for our Fibercon® Pro Vectran fabric.
The Polypreg finish is optimized for the greater diagonal stability required for performance sails.
There is an extra cost, but you will feel the difference .......
