Looking for sécond hand sails

Hi everyone

I am finding very hard to find second hand sails for my 18.5 M bennetti
The luff of the main sail 19.10 meters and the foot is 7.6 meters
The genoa is 21.30 meters and the foot is 6.10 meters

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated

Re: Looking for sécond hand sails

It would help if you let us know where you're located. I doubt you're in the US, but if so I can recommend this company:

We just bought our first second hand sail from Bacon Sails in Annapolis, Maryland. The website is a good place to start, but when you narrow it down give them a call and they can actually pull the sail(s) in question and answer your questions.

At least that's how they did it for us and we were pleased with the customer service and better yet, super pleased with the sail and the price.

Good luck!

Aron that is a jumping off point for an Atlantic crossing, who is going to sell even a second hand sail before departing across the Atlantic? They will keep it on board just in case and get shut in the Carib. Your second problem is the size you need. There are lots of sails for 30ft yachts. 60ft? well that's more tricky, an completely out of budget for many of us.

Kemps have a large Genoa ex-Swan, you might see if its still available:

Re: Looking for sécond hand sails

The reason why I am here looking for sails is because of exchange sails, this John pollard sounds all nice on the phone and promise you the sun the moon and the stars, paid him for faster delivery and for adjustment to the sails and he then pretends he does not know who I am and then ignores my phone calls and then sends me the completely wrong size of sails

Avoid these people, now i am trying to get a refund and send back the sails

This man owes me Ł3125

Never again
