RSB Rigging reports increase in running rigging services

Leading supplier of rigging services for the superyacht industry, RSB Rigging, has recently reported a significant increase in delivering running rigging for both new build and shipyard projects.

Allan Wester, head of the splicing team at RSB Rigging commented, “Over the last year, the number of new builds and shipyard projects we have supplied running rigging for has drastically increased. This is testament to the knowledge of not just sailing, but technical ropes and instructs splicing work, of our team.

“Our splicing team are currently in the throes of building the running rigging for yet another new build for a world class shipyard. Details on this will be released once the boat is on the water.”

Over the past year RSB Rigging Solutions has worked with many new build projects including the Baltic 108, the Baltic 116 and the brand new J8 built by the Dutch shipyard Holland Jachtbouw.

According to RSB Rigging, “Our experienced riggers have created all the running rigging for these superyachts and have had interest from shipyards all over Europe to become involved in their new build projects due to our very high standard.

“The Italian rope manufacturers Gottifredi Maffioli supplied the ropes to our RSB Splicing team for the J8 project and have recently given a seminar highlighting the research and development that goes into building their ropes, maintaining the highest quality as well as technologically correct for superyachts.  These days with yachts getting bigger and faster they need a phenomenal amount of strength and resistance in their running rigging to withstand the wear sustained on board.”

RSB also explained that J8 has now been named Topaz and was recently launched in the Netherlands. She is one of the longer ‘super Js’, with an 88ft original waterline length, a foot longer than any other J Class ever designed. The launch of Topaz brings the J Class fleet on the water to eight boats.
