Sail Lofts in South Florida

Hello all -

Does anyone know of a good, reasonably priced sail loft between Stuart and Ft. Lauderdale? I have a furling main that needs some attention. I would much rather get a reference from someone than walk in to a place and pay out the nose for shoddy work.....

Thanks!

Mack Sails in Stuart have a very good reputation and on a quote for a full new set were $$$$ below other named lofts.

I am in the process of buy a new (for me) yacht and if the sails need replacing they will be the loft I use.

Super Sailmakers in Fort Lauderdale is also a good loft with an excellent reputation. The owner is a friend of mine, and I used them for 20 or so years.

2nd Mack Sails. Bought a full set from them. Price was great and service excellent despite being across the country from them.
