    We have a problem, the inlining ( fabric is velvety vinyl ish) in the aft cabin is crumbling and coming down. We have three questions:
    Is it possible to buy the fabric parts as ready made product and do the assembly ourselves?
    Is it possibly to buy the «sewing pattern» and do the cutting ourselves?
    As we live in Norway – it’s hard to get the right fabric… any ideas / links out there? We can get hold of vinyl with the foam backside…but we would love to get the velvety fabric – which was originally installed. Thank you.

    Have you contacted the Beneteau dealer in Vettre, Giramar AS? Of the three dealers in Norway, they seem to handle the sailboats. If they can’t order the fabric, they could at least put you in touch with the right department to deal with in France to find out more. A quicker idea might be to take a sample of the fabric to an upholsterer near you. They are likely familiar with a wide range of fabrics. They could probably identify it and get it, perhaps more cheaply. They might also have suggestions for material that would hold up better than the original and look nicer too. We have had good luck dealing with an upholsterer near us for fabrics for our boat.
