What our clients say…
Thank you for your fine, very professional work and all your good advice and ideas. More importantly in 46 years of owning sailboats I have not encountered a rigger who was looking out for his customer as much as you, or who gave as much money saving advice. I would strongly recommend you to anyone who asked!
Paul retuned our rigging in Marsden Cove Marina a couple of months ago. We have now made it to Australia and are almost in Cairns. I don’t know what you did but our boat has never sailed better. Thank you for a job really well done!
We had broken some of our rigging on our way into the Bay of Islands and NZ Yacht Services got us back up and out on the water in no time.
