With Elvstrøm Sails, WENDEL & RADOS has a strong partner for the manufacture and supply of EPEX sail membranes! This is a logical step in the development of sailmaking in order to be able to continue to supply our customers with the best technology in regatta sailing in the future.
No matter which sailing wardrobe you need for your yacht. Whether Dacron sails in horizontal section, laminate sails in tri-radial section or EPEX membrane sails from Elvstrøm – with the sailmakers from WENDEL & RADOS you get tailor-made sails from professionals. We develop and manufacture sails for all types of yachts based on your suggestions.
Regatta sails from WENDEL & RADOS are successfully sailed to all types of races. The computer software from Prosail and a specially designed plotter/cutter are used for maximum accuracy in sail production. The sailmakers regularly travel to Auckland/New Zealand to exchange ideas with sail designers about current designs and the optimal use of special hardware.
Precisely fitting and powerful symmetrical and asymmetrical headsails are also available from WENDEL & RADOS. We only use fabrics with the highest quality standard of Contender and Dimension Polyant.
As the main supplier for Hanse Yachts AG in the field of convertible tops, WENDEL & RADOS produces several hundred sprayhoods, cake stalls, biminis and roller hoses every year.

WENDEL & RADOS manufactures various models of spray covers according to your wishes. We use high-quality Masacril® tarpaulin fabrics. After the production of hangers, either in sea water resistant aluminium tube or stainless steel tube of the quality AISI316(V4A), a 1 : 1 sample is taken on board. This is then transferred to the cloth in the workshop and adapted to the yacht as precisely as possible after production. High-quality fittings ensure long lasting enjoyment of the respective covers.
The Maindrop with Lazy-Jack lines has proven to be a practical system for cruising sailors. For this purpose, measurements are taken when the mainsail is tucked up and two wedge-shaped tarpaulin parts are manufactured. These contain straps for attaching the lazy-jack lines and a batten for support. These two tarpaulin parts are connected with a zipper. This allows the sail to be quickly stowed away by means of a zipper. A small chimney on the mast covers the rest of the sail. UV radiation and other weather influences can thus be kept away from the sail during lay times. Our Maindrop system is used on all Hanse and Dehler yachts.
A bimini is an open top. On yachts, for example, it ensures that the helmsman on the outside steering position is protected from the sun’s rays. The bimini is adapted to the special wishes of our customers in our workshop in Greifswald. So the bimini can be manufactured as a stainless steel construction. Contact us and we will develop your special bimini.
