Tropical Sail Loft started 1996 in Philipsburg as a one-man business in a tiny (14′ x 18′) Loft. Within a year they moved to bigger premises and employed additional staff. In 1999 they moved to the Lagoon, upstairs in the Budget Marine Building, where they stayed until November 2005.
But once again, as the sails (and the business) grew bigger and bigger, they found themselves needing more space! Tropical Sail Loft has now moved to a brand new 3200 sq. ft. premises at Lagoon Marina – on the water’s edge of Simpson Bay Lagoon.
Look for the bright red building next to FKG Rigging. They are on the top floor. There is a dinghy dock, car park and electric hoist to make transporting your sails easy.
The new loft boasts a raised floor of 2300 sq ft, allowing room to work on the largest sails, 2 work stations for canvas building and repair – and room to grow. For the at-home sewers, they stock all of the most popular fabrics in the most popular colours – 700 yds of Sunbrella alone!
Together with other supplies from adhesives to zippers, they are your one-stop shop for all your canvas and sail sewing needs.
