Sailmaker UBS

Welcome to the sailmaker UBS. We adjust and repair all kinds of sails, sail covers and packs as well as boat and mooring covers and boat tents in our sail loft in Medemblik. This includes sails for wind surfing and kiting, awnings and sun sails. Moreover, you come to us for new sails, tents and all sorts of covers.

You can bring us your sails for inspection in the winter period. After a consultation we repair and/or maintain everything needed.

In the summertime we stand ready for emergency repairs. We can arrange to get and bring the sails from and to you.

Our History


Our business is established

In 1989 Untited Baltic Sails was founded as a joint venture with the Polish sailmaker Bryt-Sails from Gdansk for making sails. Until today our sails are produced there by approximately 25 colleagues. In 2002, Hans van der Lee became in charge of the company.
Initially, we mainly worked for the traditional sailing charter boots. But soon we started producing sails for recreational sailing with growing success. This development lasted for the following years.
At the same time the demand for repairs and maintenance grew constantly. To meet this demand we founded an independent department in Enkhuizen, the Netherlands under the name “Zeilmakerij UBS” (Sailmaker UBS). In the recent years this department was under control of Patrick van de Walle. Here, sails are adjusted and repaired, in large parts in traditional craftsmanship. The departments work together were closely and we are perfectly attuned to each other. The sailmaker UBS was a great success. Due to the rapid expansion of it we moved to Medemblik in 2017.
Nowadays we are a modern all-round sail maker with a wide international customer base.

In our opinion it is important that the youth is active in water sports. Florine Bramvaer is one of those young enthusiasts who wants to compete in the Olympic games 2024 in the class of 49FX. We are proud to help Florine to make to her dream come true.

Since years I am a loyal customer at the sailmaker UBS. And that’s for a good reason: Neat repairs but also preventive control of sails and maintenance, exceptional service and customer orientation. This is a sailmaker for every wish you have. Moreover, I am a big fan of the blocks, especially the new ECO blocks.
