No slow down in 2011, says Marine Results

Rigging specialists Marine Results whose main clientele is the world’s largest superyachts, have reported that business last year was steady, producing the same turnover as in the previous 12 months.

The company provides full solution rigging, inspections, repairs and reports on a worldwide basis.  In 2011 Marine Results carried out mast and rig services on the 88 metre Maltese Falcon, the world’s largest sailing yacht, and on the mast of the 56 metre Salute, at 72 metres the world’s tallest aluminium rig.  Marine Results enjoys regular repeat business from yachts undergoing scheduled service contracts as required by insurers, and has carried out Navtec and OYS service contracts for a number of yachts.  Yachts also benefit from Marine Results’ specialist NDT (Non Destructive Testing) services and the company has recently invested in a 60 tonne 11 metre tensile testing machine, allowing for certification and proof testing of lifting equipment. The power pack from this machine is further utilised to test hydraulic systems and cylinders after servicing in the workshop.

“Marine Results has sustained momentum during the challenging year of 2011,” comments Director Jon Morris “and we are very satisfied with the company’s performance.”

The company has also carried out a full mast service on the 40m ketch Huckleberry  and an OYS service and modifications to Jasali, a 53 metre Perini.  A full rig refit was carried out on Hyperion as part of an 8 year service, and on the 38 metre La Cattiva, who herself once boasted the world’s largest rig when she was built in 1990.  Marine Results’ ongoing relationship with Mirabella V continues, with regular service work undertaken.

“The order book is looking positive for 2012,” adds Jon Morris. “There doesn’t seem to be any great slowdown in the cruising and charter activity of our client yachts.  It’s important to keep potential investment return on a yacht at an absolute optimum, and that means that regular servicing and maintenance is more important than ever.  We have an edge in being able to mobilise personnel and a place a full facility anywhere in the world to carry out complex projects. We are able to use the latest technology to carry out rig assessment and to offer solutions.”
