Southern Spars Rig pro and RSB Rigging Solutions have announced they are to form a new partnership.

The pairing will combine the world-class reputation of Southern Spars’ Rig Pro, with the expertise and facilities of RSB Rigging Solutions. The new alliance will provide a high quality service operation to superyachts in the Med.

RSB Rigging Solutions' workshop is located in the STP yard in Palma Mallorca which has recently completed a major refurbishment, with the installation of new equipment including a 750 tonne travel hoist.

General Manager of RSB, Steve Branagh, was a Yacht Captain for over 16 years and has both superyacht cruising/charter experience and a grand prix racing background. Having worked on new build projects, major refits and many new yachts commissioning in Europe, Steve has built up extensive contacts in the marine industry.

His team in Palma will undertake service and refit work on Southern Spars masts and rigging, and will also have the capability to perform EC6 retrofits on existing masts.

Southern Spars’ Rig Pro General Manager, Paul MacDonald comments, 'Southern Spars has always recognised the need to have a high quality service operation in a key Mediterranean superyacht port of call. RSB is a reputable and dominant player in the market and we view the partnership in Palma as the best way to deliver these services to our clients located in the Med.'

Southern Spars welcomes the team from RSB Rigging Solutions onboard.
