Need an advice where to look for new mainsail for Dufour 2800

Hi!

I need to order a new mainsail for my small and old Dufour 2800. Google shows me a lot of companies who can make a sail for me but there is difficult to choose from lot of offers with almost the same descriptions. I need a usual inexpensive dacron cruising mainsail. Please advice me a good place to order?
Thanks in advance!

Best built mainsail I have ever owned and 2/3 price of a locally made sail. Need to measure the sail yourself and wait 6-8 weeks for delivery.

national sail supply sails

Hi Georgy,

Are you in the US? If in the US, especially east coast I have been dealing with Mack Sails in FL for 35 years. Very good value for the money and great support from the company.

I live in Estonia so European companies are preffered but postage rates from US to Estonia are almost the same with rates from Germany or UK to Estonia, so US manufacturers are welcome too

Well it's a long way but drop an email to these guys.

Mack Sails Sailmakers for mainsails, headsails, genoas, spinnakers, lazy jacks I would bet they have built sails for a Dufour 2800 in the past.

My new main came from Bacon Sails & Marine Supplies and I have been very satisfied with it.

Try Rolly Tasker Sails (Phuket, Thailand). IF they have an agent near you they have a decent reputation for "mail order" sails.
