Minney's yacht surplus is one of my favorites.
Google "used sails" - There's a bunch of used sail specialists.
New - any sail maker can build you a new sail.
For cruising quality at good prices, avoid North, UK, Quantum, Doyle etc. as they are expensive. (But for racing sails by all means go to them!)
Look at AirForce sails, Rolly Tasker sails, FX sails etc - they do great work for great prices.
You should measure your own sails, even if you find a listing for a sail for your boat (unlikely) there's no guarantee it will fit.
For that matter, if you find a used sail specifically for your boat, odds are it's 30 years old already. Makes no sense to buy that!
