Cockpit Enclosure(s) for Island Packet 38 - Cost ?

I'm in the market for an IP38 and while one of the boats on my short list has full enclosures (2 - 1eisenglass and 1 screen), the other boats have only a dodger and bimini with no connector. We've determined that we want an enclosure, so I'm trying to get a rough idea how much we should expect to pay to have one made so that I can better determine what our outfitting costs might be when comparing the boats.

So, for those of you who have enclosures, how much did they cost (and what was included)?

Thanks all.

Our enclosure for the B393 cost a bit over $3000. We already had a dodger, bimini and connector. No screens, just canvas and glass, just run of the mill plastic, not Strataglass. Material was Sunbrella.

That's a real good price. A dodger usually runs about $2500 and a Bimini just under $2000.

Expensive to have from a loft, but you can make yours at a fraction of the cost.

E.g. I was quoted 400 Euro for a new dodger (canvas part only) for my boat, so I made new canvas myself at 35 Euro with a little help from my sailing friends.

So cry and pay, or DIY.

We had been postponing getting a full enclosure because of the cost but on arrival in Cartagena we decided to get a new stackpack which had been quoted at $2,500 in both Florida and Grenada.

When the canvas man, Renson at Club Nautico, quoted us $800 for a stackpack made with Sunbrella we got a quote on all new canvas...The final job was:

Recut, resew and repair a 1100sq ft genoas and a 400 sq ft staysail
New stackpack
New dodger, using our glass which was only 2 yrs old
New bimini
Full enclosure
Chaps for the 11 ft dinghy
Cover for 12 diesel cans.

All done expertly and very well in Sunbrella. He had a cheaper material than Sunbrella but said he did not like working with it as it did not meet his standards.

Total cost? I got change out of $5000 for all labour and materials!
