Rig Pro Services

Several services are available from each of our Rig Pro service centres or via our mobile team of experienced technicians. These range from mast and boom servicing to refit and repairs, rigging work, cordage and hardware, commissioning and tuning and project management.

Rig servicing

Rig Pro technicians offer several options for customized service and maintenance programs for your yacht. We tailor the timing of key maintenance checks to fit in with your yacht’s schedule, planning in advance so that you don’t get caught out.

Our service and maintenance plans keep your yacht sailing.

Refit and Repair

Our skilled craftsmen undertake both refit and repair work on rigs from small racing yachts, through round-the-world record-setters, to megayachts.

If you have damaged your rig, boom, spreaders or rigging – we can fix it.

We also specialize in retrofits for equipment like halyard locks to help improve the performance of your rig.

Composite & rod rigging work

Rig Pro can service and replace your current rod and carbon rigging, or upgrade your yacht’s standing rigging package to new ECsix multistrand rigging.

We are the one stop shop for rod rigging and can build new stays onsite at many of our Rig Pro service locations around the world.

Cordage, hardware & splicing

Rig Pro centres supply an extensive range of cordage and hardware, with the inventory varying between sites according to demand.

Whether you’re looking for new sheets and guys, halyards, dock lines, or specific hardware items, our products will meet your high performance racing, one design, or cruising needs.

Commissioning & tuning

A big part of Rig Pro’s work is stepping new masts that have come directly from the factory. Some of these are done locally when newly built yachts are moored in Auckland and Cape Town, but we also regularly send our technicians to boat yards around the world to facilitate the stepping of our high spec rigs.

Once rigs are stepped, our technicians tune them to ensure that when the mast is handed over to the client, it is performing 100 per cent as designed. Our Rig Pro technicians all have extensive experience in tuning race and superyacht rigs.

Design & Project Management

Our Rig Pro staff can manage your entire refit project. We have our own project managers who are based at head office, working closely with the in-house design team at Southern Spars. They liaise with the boat representatives, the design team, yard, technicians and any subcontractors to make sure that your refit runs smoothly and on time.
