Well known Australian sailing industry professional Carl Crafoord has joined forces with Quantum Sail Design Group to deliver an expanded Quantum Sails presence in Australia and Asia.

Carl has been in the marine industry for 32 years, commencing with his sail making apprenticeship with Hugh Treharne in December 1976. He has sailed 23 Sydney to Hobart races and has had four Hobart wins as a navigator and strategist. They were Sagacious in 1990, Raptor in 1994, Quest in 2002 and Quest in 2008.

He has been involved up until recently with Lewmar Marine PLC and previously handled Harken Yacht Equipment’s distribution.

When asked what attracted him to Quantum, Carl said, 'The sail making industry is facing rapid change at this time and the Quantum model is the future; proprietary central manufacturing, winning designs and global distribution backed up with 100% commitment to customer service. They’re not just building a sail for a customer, but incorporating the Quantum product into a complete service that works to improve each customer’s sailing experience.

‘We’ll be headquartered in Brookvale Sydney and will have Quantum Sails Marine service centers in Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide , Perth, Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand with a range of top shelf services and products .

‘Our emphasis will be on delivering the best possible service, with the best people, from sail makers servicing sails to professional racing sailors who will sail with clients to pass on knowledge in areas of boat speed and tactics and more.’

This is an exciting time for Quantum. With the refinement of the Fusion M membrane product, the integration of iQ design technology, and the enhancement of standards in manufacturing, Quantum is putting the tools in place to further strengthen the product lines and brand position. Quantum supplies its customers with the most technologically advanced, highest quality sails, coupled with the best service available on the market.

'We feel very excited to have Carl on board to manage Quantum’s business in Australia and Asia', said Ed Reynolds, President of Quantum Sails, 'Carl will ensure that our customers receive the technologically advanced product and outstanding service that is indicative of the Quantum brand.'
