Laser sails are very very expensive!! So are the hulls and spars and every part of a laser! I live in Portugal and my radial sail that i bought new 2 months ago was priced at 660euros, plus taxes and the sail numbers and i ended up paying around 760euros... In comparison a 420 north sails costs about 1200euros and there are 3 sails, made of much better sailcloth and that last great for racing for at least two years!! Also for the 420 toni tio quantum sails cost around 1100euros.. that's just another example... A laser hull is really expensive, my 420 new with trailer, covers, dolly, two sets of sails, and everything else cost me 10.000euros compared to my laser wich cost me 6000euros plus covers, dolly and another spare sail, and i don't have a road trailer for the laser... So i ended up paying as much for the laser as i did for the 420 wich is a much more complete boat, much better constructed and has design costs for the company, etc... So i'll continue to say that lasers are way to expensive!!!! and unfortunely they are the only option we have to race a one design class... that is why the laser company can charge so much for this stuff and still be able to sell them!!
