Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Mack Sails
Danny, I have been dealing with the Mack family for 30 years , a father and two sons . The sons Travis and Colin have been running the business for the last several years. If you met them you would impressed with what nice guys they are and even more so with their depth of knowledge regarding anything related to sailboats , particularly sails. I have bought many sails for different boats , furlers , rigging , etc. They only do excellent work , have exceptional standards and very competitive prices . Their quote on a new main came in $800 less than North Sails. They build everything in their loft in Fla. , North Sails , not sure where they are built. I like buying from the guy who is actually building the sails not just selling them. Hope all is good in N.Z. , wish you and Yvonne a Happy New Year !toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Hi Pat, I've changed your thread from rigging to Mack Sails. When we bought Ocean Pearl in 2008 she had a full set of near new Mack sails. We must have done over 30,000 ocean miles before we changed the headsail and main. The mizzen has 40,000 miles and still going. I was impressed with the sails from day one and we did some really good passage times with them.
Pleased to do a plug for a quality provider.
