We are more than happy to bring our expertise dock side, even at short notice response, should your yachts, mast or any of its spars unfortunately fail mid-race week or regatta. We effect speedy & structurally sound repair, in double quick time so your yacht can continue to compete in the remainder of the event.

We also carry out onsite service, repairs or complete builds should your mast be too big to travel, or it is more convenient for us to come to the Spars beside the yacht or in the boatyard.
