riggingProperly maintained yacht rigging reduces cost and promotes safety.

Often the rig of a sailing yacht is overlooked. Over a lifetime in yachting, Laurence Sunderland has repeatedly been called upon to assist when the unthinkable happens: a yacht loses its rig or has a rigging failure.

A good rigging inspection will often prevent rigging failure, and depending on the usage of the vessel, SYM will make recommendations. Blue Water Cruisers need additional attention due to the demands placed on the rig.
