SailSelect is specialized in and focusses on sails. However, please ask our dealers for a recommended supplier.
Rolly Tasker Sails is focussing on production rather than sales and marketing. Their home markets are USA, Azia, Australia. SailSelect is distributor for Europe and only started in 2005.
Rolly Tasker is based in Thailand, having relocated from Australia some 20 years ago. Thailand's chief advantages for manufacturing are lower labour and real estate costs, and taxation laws are different. In addition Rolly Tasker is one of the largest sailmakers in the world. Cloth - one of the key components in a sail's cost price - is purchased in huge quantities at discounted rates. Few in the industry can match Rolly Tasker's sheer purchasing power. High quality results from over 50 years experience in sailmaking, and from investing in the latest in computer- and lasertechnology. In addition SailSelect uses a low cost organization and distribution model. This way we are able to add value but keep the prices very competitive.
Yes. SailSelect can be asked to measure the rig for you. Depending on the location a small fee may be applicable. Please contact the nearest dealer for information.
This depends mostly upon stock, and you are welcome to state a preference. Rolly Tasker purchases massive quantities of the best cloths (by Contender, Dimension-Polyant, Bainbridge and Challenge), but does so with an eye for getting the best deal on your behalf. A high-tech racing laminate from one manufacturer may come at a lower negotiated price than that of a competitor. This cloth will then be purchased in high quantities. This flexible purchasing strategy is one of the ways Rolly Tasker manages to combine high quality and reasonable price levels. Please contact us for more information.
