Our Annual service comprises a complete “mast-in” check by an experienced rigger who visually inspects all aspects of the rig from top to bottom. Particular attention is given to areas such as sheaves, pins, spreader roots and tips, backstay(s), forestay(s) and runner tangs as well as all the running rigging and the systems that operate the lines and sails.
This is the type of inspection that should be done on all vessels after any major voyage or at least once a year regardless of age or usage. The results of the inspection will be given in writing, including explanatory photos of any problems found.
- complete mast-in check
- sheaves, pins, spreaders, stays & runner tangs
- running rigging
- line & sail systems
Our 4-Year Service includes the same thorough check as the yearly inspection with the addition of removing the mast from its shims in order to allow access to as many cold heads as possible for a visual inspection of their condition and to lubricate these areas. By jacking up the mast, rig loads can be checked and adjusted where necessary. Rig logs are updated or a maintenance report will be provided.
This inspection is followed by a report logging any items that need addressing.
- Fittings visually inspected
- Lubrication of all fittings that can be accessed while the mast is still in the yacht
- Mast re-tuned
- Sea trials
- Rig log updated
- Maintenance report issued
The Full Service option entails unstepping and dismantling the spar(s) in order to undertake an in-depth inspection. This includes Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) by either Dye Testing or Ultrasound Testing on the rod rigging and thorough inspection of all other mast components including any composite rigging which is load-tested. Test results and observations will determine the extent of repairs that may be required.

- Mast disassembled once unstepped
- Rods ‘NDT’ tested
- Composite stays ‘NDT’ tested
- All necessary repairs made, mast reassembled and stepped
