How Much Did You PAY ????
While $2,000 might sound like a rather large sum, there are many variables when it comes to upholstery. There are many grades (and thus prices) for both fabrics and foam.
When I recently had the interior of my '78 Argosy Minuet 6.0 Metre refurbished/restored, I was advised that the foam/fabric/labor each accounted for approximately 1/3 of the cost - - in part because I chose to go with premium foam and premium cloth. The foam for the twin lounges in my Argosy was between $600 and $700, the face upholstery fabric was $48.00/yard and the backing upholstery was around $14.00/yard. I don't have the precise breakdowns for these two components, but I suspect that the two lounges were likely close to $2,000 of the overall cost.
