About Us

Manders Sails was established in 1966 by George Manders who worked with the greats of the industry. One of the most famous was Bob Miller (later known as Ben Lexen).


Greg Ellis moved to Queensland in 1976 and worked with George until 1987 when George retired.

Greg then purchased the sail loft and has continued the tradition of making quality sails and covers using the latest technology, best industry practices, the best materials available, and old fashioned care and attention to detail , 42 years experience helps a little as well. Our Daughter Kirsten has been working alongside Greg for over 9 years now, helping to deliver a quality product from a caring family business.
