Rondal rigs have earned a reputation for reliability. That’s partly down to the quality of the Dutch company’s spars, the expertise of its design office, and the inherent benefit of being part of a fully integrated, semi-custom sailing system.
But a lot of credit is also due to the highly skilled team of service engineers, riggers, and technicians who travel the world keeping the integrated sailing systems with captive winches of the superyacht fleet functioning faultlessly and their ever more enormous masts standing tall.
Until a decade ago it was largely ignored by class requirements but since then the five-year servicing of superyacht rigs has become a necessary requirement.
