I went through this exercise back in 2010 with my Nc39, a pilot house yacht and not the motorsailor range. I spent a day at the Soton Boat Show talking to all the various sailmakers and getting quotes. Although not all of them attend.

Finally went with Peter Sanders of Lymington and with Hood Vektron cloth for both the Main and Genoa. As I was moored in Lymington at the time Peter came and measured the boat himself which gave me a higher level of confidence. He was cheaper than both the quotes from North and Hood. After 8 years they are still in great condition and set very well.

I know of one Nc40 owner who has also replaced his sails with Vektron sails using the same sailmaker. He is not a member of the association.

Best of luck
