Bravo Sails is expanding and urgently needs an experienced Sailmaker.

Do you love making sails but just wish you had more time to go sailing? At Bravo Sails, we offer you the flexible lifestyle to develop your career and enjoy your time on the water.

Bravo Sails is the leading sail loft in South Australia, situated in the prime location at the Royal South Australia Yacht Squadron. We service all yacht clubs and marinas in the area. We focus on providing excellent customer service and continual improvement of our services. Our customers know us for taking pride in our work and being innovative.

Our purpose-built sail loft is a hive of activity, with a team of flexible and skilled workers meeting the repair deadlines of racing customers, whilst maintaining a steady production of new sails. We also custom make a wide range of canvas goods and install furlers and running rigging. Experience in these areas would be an advantage, although the primary role is the measurement, design, production, alteration and repair of racing and cruising sails.

Our ideal applicant will have at least 3 years’ experience as a Sailmaker and can demonstrate the following qualities:

  • Reliable and highly motivated
  • Attention to detail
  • Excellent time management skills
  • Ability to prioritise tasks and meet deadlines
  • Ability to work in teams and unsupervised
  • Confident to consult with customers to establish design specifications and to assist with demo sails
  • Competent to set up, operate and maintain industrial sewing machines
  • Fit to kneel and stand at length to assemble sails and to lift and install bulky sails
