How Blue Phoenix proceeds to make cruising sails:
1) highly qualified and of great sailing experience Blue Phoenix staff, relief measures on board, supervising the type of equipment on your boat (furler, mast, genoa tracks, halyards, etc ...).
2) Suggestion to shipowner of different types of material depending on the boat model and the navigation mode.
3) Development by Smar Azure Project design software, of sailing custom project for the type of boat concerned and depending on the chosen material.
4) In the case of cloth or laminate with taffettà, the design of the paneled sail, is "disassembled" and transformed into nesting on the cutting machine, in order to distribute the individual project panels into the piece of material which, lying on the laser bank, It will be cut according to the data entered by the designer.
The laser beam will cut each panel without touching the material, which, retained on the micro-cutting bench by powerful suction pumps, will not undergo any displacement allowing the cut and cauterized panel, to keep unchanged the shape of the initial project.
5) In the case of the membrane, the designer, with the software Azure Project, will develop the custom sail project, will put the fibers as the sail he wants to design, by concentrating the fibers in the major stress points and reduceing them where sailing will less subjected to stresses. The custom project file thus obtained will be sent to the manufacturers of membranes carefully selected by Blue Phoenix in order to obtain macro panels that respond to the project.
Blue Phoenix will assemble the macro panels, will trim the sail as the project and proceed to the finishes. Sail so obtained will be extremely light (the reinforcements are formed by the merger of fibers and not by overlapping material as in paneled sails) and performing (the macro panels designed with the camber where it is necessary, fibrates by project and the few joints make sail a true wing).
6) When the sail is ready, Blue Phoenix staff will deliver the sail on board to the shipowner and perform the test at sea to ensure that everything meets the high quality Blue Phoenix standard.
7) The sail at the end of the first season, will be submitted by Blue Phoenix to a free check-up.
8) The sail will have a two year warranty.
9) The shipowner, for each technical advice, will find in Blue Phoenix a safe and professional support service.
