Well all I can tell you is that the price you have is cheaper than the last owners of Shamal paid in 2006, also from Kemp

So on that basis it sounds pretty good!

New mainsail from Kemp's 3 reefs, sail number etc. £671 very pleased with that price as other quotes were nearer £1000.


Kind Regards

I have had several sails made by Kemp and been pleased with the quality and the service.

But you need to be sure you are comparing like with like when comparing different makers' prices. Some sailmakers offer different grades of sail using cheaper or more expensive materials and finishes to suit your needs. Other makers seem to specialise in making sails for the upper end of the market only.

So it might help to think about the sort of sailing you plan to do and specify this when asking for a quote.
