Ullman Sails opened its newest location called Ullman Sails Detroit.

The full-service loft, based on the northeast shore of Lake St. Clair in Clinton Charter Township, provides new sails, canvas and sail service to the Detroit and broader Great Lakes sailing communities.

“After 42 years in the sail-making business I am confident that Ullman Sails provides the best total value to any sailing customer,” Ullman Sails Detroit president Wally Cross said in a statement. “Value, to me, represents a high-quality product that will perform over a long period of time and that is fairly priced. Working with Ullman Sails, I am in the best position to give my customers this value.”

The company said the loft team includes Wally Cross, Mike Boston, and Ian Pouliot — an experienced, local team with more than 90 years of collective sail-making expertise.

“We are very excited to bring Ullman Sails to the Detroit market with this team. Ullman Sails has a broader range of options than other sail makers,” said Boston, the loft manager. “We will be able to offer the best sail that meets our customers’ needs.”

The new loft joins Ullman’s two other Great Lakes locations, Ullman Sails Cleveland and Ullman Sails Buffalo, both managed by Greg Koski and Dan Elliot.

“We are very enthusiastic about having Wally, Mike and Ian in the Ullman Sails group,” company president David Ullman said. “The team significantly increases our ability to provide for the Detroit and Great Lakes sailing community. We all share the same vision of what the sail-making business should be and how to best offer value to our customers. It is truly a great fit.”
