Spring Mast and Rigging Checks

At Berthon we have a dedicated rigging team that undertake all aspects of mast and rig inspections, as well as all rigging and rope work in traditional ropes to modern composite materials.

Berthon Spring rig and mast check

During the Spring the riggers are busy performing many rig checks ahead of the start of the season. They will complete a 120 point check list that covers all aspects of mast, spreaders, boom, standing and running rigging, deck gear and a few others things. A full report will be completed for the customer, highlighting any areas on concern or fault.

Any repairs can be undertaken by our experienced rigging team who offer a complete rigging service, we can step and un-step masts alongside our yard wall for yachts up to 90ft LOA using our own yard wall crane. We offer a complete rigging service including:-
