The Rig Shop’s Latest Projects

Slocum 43 ‘Right Choice’

Having brought the boat back from Croatia our brief was to get the boat up to spec for both single handed racing and long distance family cruising.

With this brief in mind we set out to show that using The Rig Shop is always the right choice. We manufactured a complete fabricated custom mast using Sparcraft mast section. Along with standing rigging using Petersen Stainless fittings, running rigging, hydraulics, furlers and the deck hardware package.

Challenger 35 ‘Mojo’

Having realised his friend had made the ‘Right Choice’ this customer came to us with his magic charm ‘MojoShe received a complete fabricated mast, standing and running rigging replacement. We also supplied a hardware package, which included Lewmar winches and Antal track systems.

Bruce Roberts 545 ‘Santosa’

This was a long term project for The Rig Shop, our customers vision was to build a boat that they were able to take to the high latitudes and also be able to maintain and service themselves at sea.

Now fast forward 8 years and our customer is fully content with ‘Santosa’. We have completed two fabricated custom masts for Main & Mizzen including hydraulics, furlers, running rigging using Marlow Ropes and Lewmar deck hardware package.

Oyster 45 ‘Gigi’
Complete mast refurbishment, including new furling system & complete standing rigging package.

Moody Eclipse 33 ‘Rapport’

Rapport received a full mast refurbishment, including a new Harken furling system,
standing rigging, running rigging and the deck hardware package was also fitted by us.
Such a nice owner who had to ‘Rapport’ his experience with The Rig Shop through the Moody Association forum. Here is something he said about The Rig Shop:

The advice and expertise at The Rig Shop is superb. They fabricate on site and don’t just fit what they can buy. I’d definitely use them again, and get all my rigging items from them.

Beneteau 47.7 ‘Kali’

A quick turnaround was required for ‘Kali‘, we carried out a complete rod rigging replacement using BSI fittings in a very short timescale in order for the owners to take her back to the Mediterranean.
