With Newport, you can now work with your Sail maker to design the perfect material for your unique need.
When you buy a new sail, you expect that your boat will sail a bit faster, handle easier and stand up to the elements well. Trust in Challenge Newport to deliver.
Newport All Purpose utilizes Fiber104 in both directions of the sail, and is specifically treated to have very high Fill 1% numbers. Newport AP is great for sails with high leech load paths and demanding shapes.
Newport LA Utilizes Fiber104 in both directions. The balanced constructions allow the proportional sizes of the yarns to grab onto each other, generating better sail shape for rigs with non-thread line loads common in these types of sails.
Newport Pro Radial uses high performance warp fibers for balanced radial and directional stability. High Mass Fiber Technology generates great UV and Abrasion resistance for the most quality conscious cruising sailors.
