Never had this done but if it's as complex as I'm picturing seems reasonable to me. I've used a sewing machine but this sure don't seem like a project I'd want to do. Plus it will be just like wallpaper, no one else will notice any small imperfections, but your eye will be drawn to them every time.
We'll get black mold around hatches and hidden places in winter without the use of a dehumidifier.

I am in the process of updating quite a few things on Littlewing, one of which is the headliner. I received a quote from a local company that specializes in marine / car headliners and was quoted ~ $1750 to:

1) Remove the main salon + head, headliner
2) Remove the V-Birth headliner
3) Remove 2 settee area headliners, one on each side of boat.
4) Replace all headliner material with ~ 35 yards of marine vinyl
5) Add zippers, border, padding as needed.
6) Reinstall

The boat is 27 foot. Sound about right? Anyone done this, or had it done on their sailboat. Looking for feedback on the cost. Area is southern California.
I had the headliner on my Crealock 37 replaced by a vendor in San Diego. They did an excellent job. Cost was around $3000. So the quote you received sounds about right. It took awhile to even find someone to quote the job, I had several vendors tell me basically I could not pay them enough to do the job.

Can you share the name of the vendor? I am in San Diego as well. Maybe they are one and the same.

LittleWingCA, in your quote there's a mention on Zippers... is this for access to bottom of coach roof mounted equipment? If yes, that will be interesting. Would you post pictures after completion? please please ??

Sure, I will post pictures. Yes, my headliner has two zippers that run a good 6 feet or so on both the starboard and port sides to gain access to deck fittings, cables, etc. Real handy when adding upgrades or doing inspections.

Unhappy Re: Headliner Replacement Cost

I am fighting a mold & mildew problem on my 24 foot Cabin Cruiser with a cloth headliner, here in FLORIDA which is the land of humidity.
I would like to try to clean it up without having to replace it at a current cost quoted to me yesterday of $5000.00 01-13-2016 to do this job. Any suggestion would be appreciated send to (acroppolo@gmail.com).

Best way to save money is to do the job yourself. $4000 plus of that quote is labor.
