Mast and Rigging Inspections
We build our standing rigging in traditional 1 x 19 stainless steel wire, compact wire or lower stretch stainless steel Dyform wire – with a range of swaged terminals, all of which are suitable for most cruising and performance cruising yachts. All components and materials used at Hemisphere Rigging Services are from the highest quality manufacturers and suppliers, so whether you need a small adjustment or modification, or a complete re-rig we have all bases covered.
Mast Tuning and Servicing
Whether you are racing or cruising we can tune your mast to ensure you get the maximum performance from your sails and equipment. We can service your mast and instruments for you to ensure everything is running freely to make your sailing easier and prevent the build up of salt and corrosion.
Running Rigging & Mooring Lines
We supply, make and fit everything from standard cruising polyesters to the more advanced racing dyneemas and technoras, for dinghies to super yachts and everything in-between – we can assist you in selecting the correct line for the correct application. We also offer a comprehensive splicing service which is free of charge when the rope is purchased through Hemisphere Rigging Services.
Winterisation and Sail Care
In line with your winter servicing and maintenance schedule we can un-step, service, store and re-step your mast. We have great working relationships with local sail-makers, and we can remove, service, launder, store and refit your sails ready for the new season. In addition, we are able to arrange the design and manufacture of new sails and sail systems.
Mast Inspections and Safety Checks
We carry out a comprehensive inspection of your mast, rigging and deck systems; giving you a full inspection report on completion allowing you to enjoy your sailing worry free.
Design and Planning
Sail, deck and mast systems can be designed and planned to each individual requirement, whether racing or cruising, making your yacht even simpler to handle. We also offer a consultation service designed to assist you with both troubleshooting as well as with selection of any new rigging parts, from winches or furling gear, to a new mast.
We are able to supply brand new masts from the leading manufacturers, for racing and crusing yachts alike.
If you are short on time we can carry out your winch servicing for you, to ensure everything runs freely and identify damage before any issues occur, allowing you to spend more time on the water.
