Replacing sails on a Beneteau 343

I am a coastal cruiser. Really more of a day sailer.

The sails are 10years old and showing it so I am looking at replacement.

I’ll get a quote for Neil Pryde as they are the original equipment.

What other vendors should I be looking at?

Re: Replacing sails on a Beneteau 343

Dave, are there any local sail makers who can visit and measure the boat just to be sure. Also examine the existing sails to see if there are any patches of wear that could be taken into account when manufacturing the new sails?

Pete

Re: Replacing sails on a Beneteau 343

Where are you located?

Are USA made sails important 2 you? At this time of year you can still get a decent deal on a US made sail while the lofts are slow over winter.

I occasionally sell sails from 3 or 4 US lofts. Only domestic production and materials.

There are local sail lofts and I am in contact with them. I live in Portland Oregon.

Try Ballard sails out of Seattle. Owner is a friend of a friend. Met the owner at the Montana cup. Super nice guy and a life long sailor.
