Amsterdam - Looking for Rigger & Sailmaker for consulting

Hi guys,

Can anyone recommend a Rigger & Sailmaker in area of Amsterdam, Netherlands,
preferably that has good offshore sailing experience on 40ft boats?

I am planning to convert my 39ft sloop into cutter rigged and order new sails.
I have own sailing experience and red a lot of different resources on topic, and re-did standing rigging by myself, but would appreciate a professional good advice from person that can come over and look on the boat.

Thank you,
Taras.

Realy good riggers are:
RakeRigging (rakerigging.com)
CS-rigging (cs-rigging.com)

There are many good sailmakers in The Netherlands. To name a few with good reputation, in no particular order:
Hagoort sails (hagoortsails.nl)
UK De Vries (devriessails.nl)
InSails (www.zeilmakerij.com)
Quantum sails (quantumsails.nl)
Apollo sails (www.apollosails.nl)

All riggers and sailmakers can work / deliver in Amsterdam.

Your recommendations for companies is nice, but the riggers from rigging company dont know about converting sloop to cutter and best sail ideas, while the sailing companies did not know about what rigging needs to be done for conversion.
Seems like both sides are interested just replacing some standard stuff on a standard boat.

I would prefer a more personal rigger/sailmaker approach, since my boat is custom.

Well, both riggers mentioned do dinghies as well as superyachts. Refits as well. So I'm a bit curious why they can't change the rigging of a 39ft yacht. Maybe you need to consult a naval architect first. Dykstra Naval Architects is a very respected company and have their office in Amsterdam (www.dykstra-na.nl).
