Established in 1980 by 30-year professional rigger Charles Russell, New England Yacht Rigging has serviced boats from dinghy class to the America's Cup. We provide standing and running rigging, spars, deck hardware, jib and mainsail furling systems, lifelines and just about everything "from the deck up"! We have 5,000 different items in inventory including a full line of hardware, custom rigging, and a large selection of marine cordage.
Our goal is to help you enjoy your sailing and boating experience whether, you are interested in a leisurely afternoon sail or a highly competitive "white knuckle" race.
Our riggers are certified in splicing from New England Ropes and Yale Cordage. We are a certified Regional Selden Mast Center and an authorized Selden dealer. We splice all types of rope: double braid, 3 strand, rope to wire, rope to chain and all the high tech fibers, such as, Zylon (PBO), Vectran, Spectra/Dyneema, Technora and Kevlar. We also provide custom splicing for some of the big name marine catalogue companies and manufacturers.
We have the capacity to swage up to ½" 1x19 stainless steel cable and head up to -40 Nitronic 50 rod for standing rigging. We also provide coated Kevlar standing rigging. Should you need a mast or boom, we can design it specifically for your boat. Often, we are able to provide the original extrusion if is currently available. Within our locale, we also provide mobile and dockside service.
