    You can still but them direct from Fletcher, but they are eye wateringly expensive.

    Give Fletcher a ring on 0845 230 5670, they are very helpful but can be slow to respond and might need chasing.

    As said previously your first contact should be with the original builder who should be able to give you the info needed or even supply a screen.

    Recently had to change a curved section of my screen which is similar in size/style to yours. Taylor made screens made the one for our boat. They already had the sizes etc so made to order but not cheap. If it is a Taylor made screen there will be a logo etched in the screen in one corner. They make screens for an awful lot of boat manufacturers so they maybe worth a call. Although their an American company they have a base in Ireland where my screen came from. Mine was an insurance claim thankfully as the cost was best part of 1500 fitted

    +1 for the call to Fletcher as they're still a current model.

    There have been some changes to the screen recently, but both look very similar so glass perhaps the same? Even if that screen isn't current, the factory/stores is reputed to be an Aladin's Cave of parts and they'll have the contacts for whoever made the original. Definitely call rather than email - like most marine companies I've encountered, electronic communications still seems a bit hit & miss at times! (Sorry Andy )

    Out of curiosity, is your screen waterproof? There seems to be a number of issues with water ingress around the screen on those and also the earlier Lewmar hatches (now discontinued to make matters worse!)

    Lovezoo, I suggest you check the manufacturer of the windscreen, and try to buy a replacement. It could be Trend Marine, who are the main UK supplier of marine glass. They will be able to replace. There should be some sort of identification in the corner of the screen.

    I had exactly the same problem on my Bayliner a couple of years ago.
    One of the curved sections shattered whilst in storage.
    Cost of replacement fitted through the local Bayliner dealer was 2700!!!
    Insurance covered it, amazingly without question.
    It was Taylor Made and they refused to ship glass only so had to purchase the whole screen section frame and all.
    It took most of the summer to sort so I used a sheet of Makrolon (polycarbonate trade name), to get by, and frankly if it hadn't been for the insurance I would have left it there, you couldn't tell the difference. I think the materials cost about 60 or so.
    But it was easy to cut and bend.
    As for scratches, over the six months I used it there were no visible deteriorations so I would recommend it, measure the glass thickness so you match it and it should fit snuggly.

    Going back several posts, Polycarbonate and all the other plastic variants such as acrylic are very easy to shape using a hot air gun.

    But you would be strongly advised to find one of the boat window specialists who can preform the window for you using "drape moulding" and the old window as a pattern

    You'll then pay for the finished article.
    If you attempt DIY moulding you will pay for a fresh piece of polycarbonate or acrylic for every time you f*** it up
