Check out this video with some of the most recent Hall Spars projects...

Hall Spars has had a long-standing relationship with Mylius having supplied spars to the 60, 65 and 76 models in recent years. Now, we are pleased to announce that we will be supplying to the next Mylius 60 in the series, the new Canting Keel version.
The Mylius 60CK is an evolution of the Mylius 60FD, to which Hall Spars also provided a carbon mast and boom. This canting keel version is an offshore-racer & performance cruiser with a sports tone suited to offshore regattas. Rigged with our spars this yacht is destined for proven performance racing and cruising.

Hall Spars has had a busy recent period with Solaris yachts, the Italian Yard famed for its high quality craftsmanship and technical excellence.
Now, Hall Spars will be supplying our rigs to the two more of the Solaris 64’ yachts, which is the new exclusive line of Solaris maxi-yachts designed for extended blue water sailing. Whats more, we will also be supplying a carbon mast and V-boom for the second Solaris 80, as well as having our masts in production for a range of Solaris yachts from 44ft to 55ft.

The first Gunboat 68, christened Condor, has now hit the water for the first time in La Grande-Motte, France. There she was stepped with her new carbon Hall Spars mast - a 29m single-spreader rotating mast as part of the supplied Regatta rig package. We also provided a carbon longeron and a box-section carbon boom to help achieve the yacht's lightweight goal. 

After an exciting 16 months in the making, she is now ready for commissioning, sea trials & her first sailing adventures! 
RigPro: Hall Spars' Official Authorised Service Provider 

Following their relaunch last year, RigPro became the authorised service provider for Hall Spars, as well as for masts and rigging manufactured by Southern Spars, Future Fibres, Marten Spars, Nordic Masts and Omohundro.

As an integrated part of the NTG's mast businesses, RigPro has 24/7 access to our global database of yachts and our excellent engineering design capabilities. With a newly formed global and dedicated service design team, the new RigPro is the only service provider that can offer engineered solutions incl. upgrades and modifications for Hall Spars rigged yachts.
This year, RigPro plans to expand to more locations through a global franchise, introduce a 24/7 emergency response service, strengthen its presence at regattas and expand its service design engineering practice. Hall Spars looks forward to an exciting year working together with RigPro.
