Hogin Sails

Hogin Sails is an independent, full-service sail loft that specializes in manufacturing customized sails.

At Hogin Sails, customizing the sail that best suits your sailing needs is top priority for local sailmaker, Steve McCarthy. From personally measuring your boat to designing the sail that you are requesting, McCarthy is with you one-on-one through the entire manufacturing process. Built in-house locally in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hogin Sails emphasizes quality, speed, durability, and ease-of-handling. Whether you are looking to be competitive on the race course or if you prefer the cruiser lifestyle, Hogin Sails will build the sail that will best meet your sailing desires!

We have moved! Operation is back up and running! Come by to check out the new space and bring your sails!

We are now located at 1849 Clement Avenue, at the old Svendsens chandlery!

Disassembling the plotter table, moving it out of the shop, and reassembling the plotter table in our new space has been a step by step process!

Moving day was interesting! How do you move thousands of pounds of equipment and materials out of the third story loft? Well, they cut a hole in the wall and used a lift!

After scrubbing and buffing the floor for days, we located where the pits were to be installed! We are looking forward to having our machines in our new pits!

Hogin Sails is moving to the old Svendsens chandlery building. Here are a few photos of the clean up.
