  Mark III or Mark IV Sails for sale (Scott)
Posted: 7:14:10 pm on 2/10/2016 Modified: 7:00:59 pm on 3/15/2016
 
I have 6 sails for sale.  I’ve sold my boat with a good compliment of cruising sails and the new owner had no intention to do any club/Wednesday night racing so he didn’t’ want to pay extra for these.

These sails are all made specifically for a 1980 C&C 27 MK III, hull #858.  All have Luff Tape #5 to fit Tuff-Luff foil or most roller furling foils.
The six sails I have are:
Mainsail: Doyle, Tape-Drive gray Pentax sail purchased from Doyle Sails, Detroit in 2009.  Very lightly used, near new condition.
Headsails:
1) Doyle. Light #1 - 155%.  I purchased from Doyle Sales, Detroit, 2010.  This sail excels in light wind (1-8 knots) and will move your MK III when the rest of the fleet can’t manage steerage.  Lightly used, near new condition.
2) AirForce.  Heavy #1 – 150%. Purchased in 2009, used from another C&C 27 MK III owner.  This sail was used by Clare Jorden on his boat “Aragorn” when he was doing club racing.  I purchased this along with a #2 and used them in club racing in the Duluth MN.  The stitching is in good condition, the tack, head & clew are in good condition and while the sail cloth is not as stiff as new, it is stiff, crisp and in very good condition.
3) AirForce.  #2–130% AirForce, purchased 2009, used from another C&C 27 MK III owner.  This sail was used by Clare Jorden on his boat “Aragorn” when he was doing club racing.  I purchased this along with a #1 and used them in club racing in the Duluth MN.  This sail is in as good or better than the #1 above.
4) North Sails.  #2–130% - Dacron.  This sail was purchased new in 2004 by the previous owner of my boat and it came with the boat when I bought it in 2005.  It was used by the previous owner for one season, cruising.  I used it very little.  When cruising I either used a #1 or a #3.  The stitching is tight and shows no fraying or UV degradation.  The sail is clean, stiff and retains the majority of its resin and shape.  Excellent condition.
5) Doyle.  #3–110% - Doyle, purchased from Doyle Sales, Detroit, 2010.  Used three times.  This #3 is perfect for heavy weather sailing.  It is a blade type with battens and reef points which reduce the sail to a 95% sail.  Near new condition.

If you have an interest in any of these sails, please contact me directly.  Email: sschoeler27(at)gmail(dot)com.

There are 3 sails remaining available for sale.  They are:
The Mainsail:
This is a Doyle, Tape-Drive gray Pentax sail purchased from Doyle Sails, Detroit in 2009.  This sail is not a “cheap sail.”  It was a premium, expensive sail when I purchased it and I “babied” it, using it in light-air conditions and only a few times.  It is in exceptional, as new, condition.  This will fit either a MK III or a MK IV rig.  It can be seen on eBay at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/111905737944?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

Headsails:
1) Doyle. Light #1 - 155%.  I purchased from Doyle Sales, Detroit, 2010.  This is also, not a “cheap sail.”  I asked Al at Doyle Sails for a premium sail that would excel in light wind (1-8 knots) and he delivered.  This will move your boat when the rest of the fleet can’t manage steerage.  Lightly used, exceptional, near new condition.  Also on eBay at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/111905750497?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649
2) Doyle.  #3–110% - Doyle, purchased from Doyle Sales, Detroit, 2010.  Used three times.  This #3 is perfect for the times you find yourself sailing in 20 knot winds.  It is a blade type with battens and reef points which reduce the sail to a 95% sail.  This sail would fit on an MK III or MK IV rig.  Exceptional, near new condition.  Also on eBay at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/111905789307?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

SHIPPING:  The sails are located in southern Wisconsin.  The 3 above sails are available for FREE shipping to the lower 48 states and actual shipping costs to Canada.  I’ve used FedEx for all the other sails I’ve sold, and yes, one was sold to a Canadian fellow.  I did not use eBay shipping for the sails in an effort to find the lowest shipping costs.  Still, it is expensive to ship to Canada as a portion of the shipping cost involves Taxes/Customs/Duties.  I’m required to complete a customs form which asks for the value of the item.  I list the honest, actual sale price as the value.

QUALITY, CONDITION & PACKAGE DEAL:  These are premium quality sails in exceptional condition.  I’m selling them at half the original cost and less than half the price of a new sail today of equal quality.  I will entertain reasonable offers for a “package” deal if someone wants all 3 or even 2 of the sails.  Unfortunately, the reasonable "package deal" will probably not be enough to fully compensate for an unfavorable exchange rate, taxes or high shipping costs.
