islander bahama 24 in need of sails

Greetings, I just joined as today I acquired a Islander Bahama 24. hull is in great shape, inside has work that needs to be done. Nothing major though, My big question for now is where can I get sails for this. None came with it, I will end up replacing all my rigging also, I simply dont trust old questionable ropes.

any assistance is greatly appreciated

Welcome and congratulations on your new boat. Check with your local sail maker, they often have a stock of used sails that can be cut and reshaped to fit your Islander Bahama.

A friend had one many years ago. A nice sailing boat with decent space below for a boat that size and age.

New sails (main and genny) would be about $1500 or so from one of the online lofts like FX Sails, North Sails Direct, or National Sail Supply. If you need a mainsail cover, figure another $200.

I'm in Massachusetts and have an extra sail off of a C&C 24. If you're local, you are welcome to it.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
