The great importance to you as a sailor is the state of maintenance of the rigging and sails. After all, it is the silent engine of your yacht. What we can do for you in this is the following:
Checking the mast for cracks, corrosion, attachment of fittings, lighting, antennas, givers
Replace of standing and running rigging in the material you prefer
Checking the operation and connection of the radar or replacing it
Replacement of stays, tensioners, shoulder bolts, split pins, puttings
Checking and washing of the running riggings
Maintenance of the sails
What we can do for you in the field of maintaining your sails is to advise you on:
• cleaning the sails
• repair of the stitching
• purchase of new sails
We can advise you on the type of sail that suits your sailing behavior and yacht. When we are together, we can guide you through the purchase. We order the sails and ensure that the sail maker delivers the right product and make agreements when the sail is delivered.
We work together with, among others:
• De Vries Zeilmakerij in Makkum
• North Sails in Almere
• Elvstrom Sails in Bruinisse
We can also advise you on the purchase of a pipe cap, cockpit cover, hood, maindrop system, roll sleeve cover and mast collar. A lot is possible in terms of material and colour.
We can take care of everything for your rigging. You can think of:
• the replacement of wear parts and lines
• increase comfort such as the installation of electric winches
• mounting furlers or electrical furlers
• refit of the mast and boom
• spraying mast and boom
In short, we do it ourselves or we arrange it for you.
We can also relieve you when it comes to the maintenance of your sailing wardrobe through good advice and guidance.
Every sailing yacht has winches and they need maintenance as well. We can take care of this for you. We dismantle and assemble the winches, clean the interior and re-grease the winches. You can have your winches converted to electric winches or have them weighted. We are happy to advise you and indicate what the options are.

An anchor winch is a safety device, so it is important that you have the right one on board. With an electric windlass, the size of the yacht and the weight are important. Based on this we can calculate what type of winch and chain you need. We can deliver and assemble a new winch. This is possible with or without a remote control. This remote control can also be used wirelessly. Our preference is for a Lewmar.
