Recently had all of my cockpit canvas replaced by Northstar and I’m very pleased with what I received. The workmanship was excellent and they helped me make some changes to my original canvas that improved the finish product immensely.
Dave and his crew did a great job of taking care of our Canvas and Soft Goods needs on our 78 Garlingtin. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a top-notch, responsive quality operation.
David at Northstar was recommended to us by some fellow boat owners who were happy with their work. We had 10 year old vinyl headliners that were sagging throughout the boat and needed to be replaced. Not a small job. David was super responsive and came out to look at the boat within a few days of our first call. He took measurements ans got us a quote back within a day.
We were going to replace the headliner with the same material that the manufacturer (Nordhavn) used when the boat was built but David gave us a few folders of sample swatches and told us to take them to the boat and consider some other options. We ended up picking a suede like product called Novasuede that is not shiny and gives the ceiling a softer look. Overall we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Totally refreshed the look of our boat and the quality is great and matches the high end construction of this a boat.
They are busy so not the place to go if yo want to make a call and get something done the next day. Also probably not the least expensive option but the quality is great. We put down a deposit and had to wait a few months for them to order materials and start work but they were very clear about that up front and stayed in contact with us. We noticed one minor small flaw after all the panels were installed and David and his team came out and fixed it in less than a day.
Overall I highly recommend David and the the guys at Northstar and we plan on using them for other projects in the future.
Have used the crew at Northstar for many projects over the years. They deliver as promised on time and on budget. The quality of the materials and workmanship is first class. There may be cheaper alternatives but none provide the value that Northstar does.
The canvas product they made for our boat turned out excellent (on all our hatches and sun roof) and we will certainly be calling them for more ( shade cover on the stern) on our 48 Sabre. And we highly recommend them. Their service was great.
