New, never used, aft-mast, self-tacking, big-rig foresail

Do you own a big cruising sailboat?

Need sails;
Sail short handed; or
Think SAFETY FIRST?

Then consider an
aft-mast conversion.- Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia,

I had two heavy-duty, zero camber, cruising sails made for my
sailboat by Rolly Tasker. The lifting effect of the
smaller sail was good enough that I decided to sell
the bigger sail.

Sail conditon - brand new
Luff 24.46m
Foot 13.13m
Clew 18.9m

Area 116.91 sq m

Luff contains 14mm Dyneema line
The sail is lifted/hangs from this
bolt rope. A forestay is not needed.

Foot contains sleeve to insert spar.

The sail is current in a dry shipping container
located in Miri Malaysia.

Also available is the spar made for this
sail. The spar is aboard my vessel now at Negros in
The Philippines. Spar is honeycomb core wrapped
in epoxy impregnated fiber glass and Dyneema filament.

To see video of smaller sail under way see:



Sail - $4,850 USD
Spar - $390 USD

Is there a wire transfer to an African bank involved in this deal?

I gather from your comment the asking price sounds too good.
In general it is a case of the Emperor has no clothes.

The wardrob and costs to rig large sailboats aft-mast
is about 1/4 the cost of a full Bermuda set. To cruisers
with budgets that is significant.

Google vessel's name to locate more information.

P.S. Bank is Fidelity and in USA.
