We are pleased to announce Bull Sails is now an Australian distributor for Hyde Sails.

Bull Sails will continue to be an active sailmaker, busy each day designing and making sails for small boats and quick turnaround jobs, canvas work, shade sails as well as the enhanced capability for quick repair and servicing work.

The affiliation with Hyde will however open up exciting new markets:

  • Large cruising sails - Hyde are the supplier for the Clipper Around the World Race. Arguably the toughest race on the planet, testament to the strength and durability of these sails. We can broaden our range into the larger cruising mono and multihull markets.

  • One Design - Whilst Bull Sails are active in the OD world of sail-making for classes we are involved in, One Design sails are a very niche market. With Hyde we now have access to a wide range of successful class sails. We can now supply top class sails to many classes including popular local classes like the Fireball (current world champ), Flying Fifteen, Optimist, Contender and VXOne.

  • Grand Prix racing sails - previously the domain of the big boys, with a stronger Hyde representation in Australian waters, there is a new kid on the block.

  • Kitesurfing and Wing Sails - a burgeoning market that Hyde are right at the forefront of.
