Revisiting the giants of the superyacht world

Marine Results take pride in knowledge that they are responsible for the wellbeing of the enormous rigs – the world’s most technologically advanced –  of many of the largest sailing superyachts afloat.  In the past few months the company has revisited several of these legends for annual rig services, inspections, repairs and replacements.   M5 (formerly Mirabella V) got the Marine Results treatment in September when the team met up with the yacht in Auckland for a full rig service, as part of the yacht’s regular maintenance programme. The mast, at 89m, is even taller than the yacht is long at 79m, so maintenance of the furling system which required removing the 90m outer stay and adding a new blade jib are jobs undertaken on a vast scale.  A couple of months ago, Jon Morris returned to New Zealand to accompany the yacht on sail trials to evaluate the new systems which are all now in place and functioning well.

Kokomo III, 58.4m, (pictured) whose rig is considered to be the tallest ever un-stepped in Mallorca, a task carried out by Marine Results, underwent her autumn rig inspection courtesy of the company before heading across the Atlantic for the winter.

Demonstrating Marine Results’ can-travel approach, a team went back to Palma, Mallorca in January to completely overhaul the rig of a cruising 95 footer build by CMB, dismantling the entire rig for inspection which will shortly be reassembled.

The 52m Dubois designed sailing yacht Red Dragon is to receive a new rope package, specified and assembled by Marine Results at their workshop.  Marine Results has done extensive research to produce safe loads data for large superyachts and applied this knowledge to Red Dragon.
