Ullman Sails is excited to announce that Andrew Turner has joined our international group of sailmakers as Ullman Sails Brisbane.

Over his career, he has built and designed sails for maxi catamarans and cruise ships through to title-winning dinghies and world champion land sailors. Now Andrew looks forward to bringing his expertise to a collaborative group effort that shares the same philosophy:
'My decision to move to the Ullman Sails group was infused by the group’s continuous commitment to building strong sails which perform at the top of their field. I am also drawn to the group’s inspiring attitude to help people get more from their boats.'
Growing up in a sailing family, Andrew has devoted most of his life to the sport of sailing; a hobby and passion which has seen him sail and work in locations all over the world.
His racing experience is large and varied from the International Contender Dinghy and Tornado Catamaran World Championships to the Sydney to Hobart and many Brisbane to Gladstone yacht races on different styles and sizes of yacht. He currently owns and races a T650 sports boat, which is getting great results in Queensland this season.
Andrew’s loft is situated in Wynnum, Queensland, a popular bayside suburb of Brisbane. As Ullman Sails Brisbane, the loft will be the closet to Manly Marina – the second largest marina in the southern hemisphere.
It will continue to provide the same great customer service and product which people have grown to know and love; but with the added benefit of having all the amazing resources, combined knowledge and experience that the Ullman Sails group provides. It is an exciting time for sailmaking in Brisbane and the standard that people have come to expect has just moved up a notch!
