SWAN 78 


The Swan 78, one of the latest series of yachts from Nautor’s Swan, incorporates all of the Finnish yard’s experience in racing and cruising into this sleek 24-meter blue-water cruiser.
Hall Spars is thrilled to announce that it has been chosen as the rig and rigging supplier to the latest Swan 78 series new builds #3 and #4. We will provide our carbon masts, V-Booms and Future Fibres ECsix rigging, ensuring the yacht has a smooth, safe and proven performance sail. Delivery is due for Spring 2019.

Hall Spars NZ update

The fit-out department at Hall Spars NZ have had a busy September finishing off and shipping out six projects in the space of two weeks. Two OceanFurl booms were shipped, bound for new performance cruising yachts in Europe. One for the ninth Oyster 885 and the other for the first of the new Swan 65 range, of which there are three currently in build. 

Hall Spars NZ also shipped two TF10 masts at the end of last month, headed to newly built yachts in Australia and Europe. The TF10 yachts are an exciting new foiling trimaran class that makes foiling sailing simple and available to club racing sailors. One customer, a car enthusiast, requested a special paint job using Mercedes custom paint colours.  Despite being departure from the norm, the paint team handled it brilliantly with a fantastic looking end result.

Hall Spars will once again be exhibiting at METS TRADE, the world's largest marine trade exhibition, taking place on the 13-15 November.
Come and find our expert Hall Spars team at stand 12.024 - available for any enquiries and solutions related to your rig and rigging needs.  


Congratulations to the three Hall Spars rigged PAC52 Class yachts; Rio, Invisible Hand and Badpak, who took all three spots on the PAC52 Cup podium last weekend.

The Cup was the last event of the 2018 PAC52 Series and Rio asserted her dominance to claim the top spot, taking five out of seven bullets. Whilst Invisible Hand and Badpak battled off the challenge from Interlodge to finish second and third respectively. All three of the yacht sports Hall Spars masts and booms and Future Fibres ECsix rigging. 

After this result it was runner-up Frank Slootman’s Invisible Hand that claimed the overall win in the 5-event season series!


The Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, the pinnacle event in the maxi yacht calendar, took place at the start of September and Hall Spars were delighted to see the one of our rigged yachts on the winner’s podium.
In Mini Maxi Group 2, the class of smallest boats competing in Cup, Riccardo de Michele’s Vallicelli 80 H20 held a perfect scoreline in all six races, to win the class a day in advance. The yacht was helped by her proven performance Hall Spars rig.
