UK Sailmaker Gibraltar- New Sailmaking machine

sewing comp

UK Halsey sails manager Andy Longarela, has recently made a massive investment to maintain his reputation and sail making ability as the leading sail maker and sail service and repair center of excellence in Andalucia. His new investment comes in the form of “The Beast”, a DÜRKOOP ADLER 366 sailmakers sewing machine, now fully installed and commissioned in the UK Halsey sail loft in Torremolinos, Malaga, Spain. This machine is recognised as the ultimate sewing machine currently available, made in Germany it out powers all other sailmakers sewing machines, it is capable of powering its needle through 20mm of Dacron, Kevlar or leather, with its adjustable speed, pitch and zig zag action it can take on the largest sails you can imagine, described by the German manufacturer as the Porsche of sewing machines, it is without doubt the strongest machine ever produced.
This new addition to the lofts capability has greatly increased the sailrepair and new sail service we continue to offer in Gibraltar, with 24 hour turn around for visiting yachts who urgently need to continue sailing onwards or a weekly service for longer stay yachtsmen. We are also continuing to offer on site repairs for sails and canvas work in our repair center in Marina Bay, please call Dave on 00447808174186 or contact us via email for all your sail requirements….. “The Beast” is hungry.
