Market for sails?

Reciently pirchased a Catalina 320 and it came with two sets of sails. The originals look to be in very good shape, for casual cruising. The original owner must have raced it to go to the trouble to replace them.

Is there a market for used sails and if so how do you tap into it? Any such thing as a sail broker?

Thanks!

Tartan34C will become famous soon enough
Lots of brokers in that business and in fact too many and used sails donít have that much value now. Where are you located because it doesnít pay to ship them to a distant broker.
All the best,

Shaggydog - I still subscribe to the c320 list and I hadn't noticed any sails for sale by you although I might have skipped/deleted it. If you are not subscribed go to http://www.catalina320.org/ and sign up. Used stock sails aren't worth much but you never know.

If you look in the classifieds of any of the sailing magazines you will find dozens of sail brokers.
A couple more to add to the above list.....

Atlantic Sail Traders & Bacon Sails

Probably worth putting in the attic for a spare set depending on the money you would get. I replaced my 29 year old main summer 2006 and I have the old main in the attic. If I decide to cross the Gulf of Mexico to Cancun I will stow it below.
