About us

SAIL WITH US.

In addition to wind and water, Sailmon is a new element that makes sailing more fun and challenging. For everybody. From our founder and three-time Olympic sailor Kalle Coster to beginning sailors. From adventurers, racers and explorers to recreational sailors.

We use our technology to revolutionize sailing, making it even more challenging. We develop hardware and software, but we are most proud of creating a new sailing experience, new ways to push the limits. We believe that capturing and sharing your performance makes you a better sailor. Nobody gets inspired by untold stories. No one gets challenged by unrecorded performances.

If you love sailing as much as we do, you use everything to maximize the experience. So feel the wind, get on the water and sail with us.

Proudly manufactured in The Netherlands. Located in a pioneer country with a long history of water inventions
