SAFETY & PERFORMANCE
Yacht Rig Inspection
Rigit's standard rig inspection service is a visual check of everything above deck. After spending time on board we will have everything we need to prepare a written report. Based on a working knowledge and wide experience of mast terminations, rigging components and geometry, our experts can identify any problems and give recommendations for improvement or replacement.
Our suppliers and partners include many of the biggest names in the rigging and boating world, all specialists in their respective fields. From cruising to racing and covering all ranges of budget, we can obtain and fit anything to suit your boating needs.

"The new rigging looks excellent and has been much admired by other owners and yard staff. Will be happy to recommend you and for any prospective customers to look at my rigging."
Have just been on the boat for the first time since you did the rigging and had a great week away. I just wanted to let you know that we think both the rigging and stem head fitting look great. We even think we’re getting an extra knot thanks to the new rig set up! Very many thanks again.
I have just had work carried out by Pav and the guys at rigituk on my SO 452. This included new standing rigging,spreaders,inner forestay, guard wires and most of the running rigging. The work was carried out very professionally and Pav was always willing to suggest modifications to fit my budget.
