cat 41'-45' complete rigging cost?


I am trying to figure out how much would cost the complete rigging for a catamaran 41'-45' feet.In the process of gathering information in order to build a cat starting with a kit, it was easy to manage all info costs for most of items (hull, insulation, interior, engines, electrical installation , etc). Rigging cost information is harder to find, and information scarce.
Here are some details of the ideal equipment, for the 41' cat, that was in the design of the naval architect:
- Aluminium anodised mast - SPARCRAFT or SELDEN Lg. 17m, 2 spreaders, equipped with track for ball-bearing cars for the main sail leech, with 1 ball-bearing head car + 5 balls-bearing cars with stainless steel tips at each batten + 5 intermediate cars.
- Aluminium anodised boom, equipped with 3 furling reefs & mainsail clue line control with cleats at the end of the boom, hardware to receive lazy bag
- Gennaker hardware : bow sprit, blocks, jammer, furling system Facnor SDG 4000
- Standard rigging stainless steel 1x19 : 4 diamond/lozenge + 2 longitudinal lozenge, 2 sheathed shrouds, 1 forestay with furling mechanism for Genoa SAILS
- INCIDENCES set of sails, horizontal cut, 1st choice Dacron Fabric (Hydranet option )
- 60m Mainsail, 3 reefs, 5 round battens
- 25m Jib, UV band
- 60m Gennaker
- 6m Storm jib RUNNING RIGGING
- 1 mainsail halyard Dyneema with block 2:1
- 1 jib halyard Dyneema
- 1 topping lift
- mainsheet and jib sheet
- 3 mainsail reef lines + 1 clue line control
- sets for adjustments travellers of mainsail and jib
- 3mm Mast Messengers for Genoa n2 and spinnaker/gennaker halyards
- 1 mooring set comprised of 2x 15m mooring lines (16 mm white polyamide 5300kg) + 2x 20m mooring lines (18 mm black polyamide 7000kg)
- 2 size 40 self tailing winches on mast for halyards and reef lines
- Jammers for Mainsail and jib halyards
- 4 blocks at foot mast for reef lines and clue line control
- Complete Lazy bag system, with blocks and jammers, INCIDENCES Aquamarine fabric

I would appreciate any opinion, should it be based on professional or practical experience; details mentioned above are not mandatory, so any similar rigging(price) from different factories would also be highly appreciated,

thanks to all of you,

I am going to guesstimate 4O to 5Ok us. It could save you a bundle finding a used mast and boom with all the hardware. I.e. there was or is a 55ft selden mast w single spreader for sale here recently for a great price
