Spars & Rigging
More than 38 years ago Rondal began to construct state-of-the-art spars for high quality sea-going yachts and offshore racers. There has been a revolution in the materials and technologies employed since, but certain things remain consistent.
First, the vast repository of mast design and build experience at Rondal that grows year by year to further enrich every project undertaken.
Second, Rondal’s commitment to the highest quality research to inform the continuing enhancement of its own, unique building processes.
Working together with top quality suppliers of standing rigging, Rondal ensures the perfect integration of the spars and the standing rigging, calculating all the correct lengths and using the fittings most suited to the yacht.
If a project is large, sophisticated or challenging, it calls for Rondal expertise.
Rondal built its first carbon mast in 1996 – a 60-metre one-piece construction that defied industry conventions, not only because a one-piece mast of that size had never before been attempted but because Rondal also chose to invent its own design and construction process.
Almost four decades of experience underpin the unsurpassable quality and reliability of Rondal designed-and-built aluminium masts. The Rondal team understands the importance of style as well as of structural integrity; and the value of minute attention to detail in engineering winch bases, mast/spreader connections, spreader lights and other fittings.
Rondal design and manufacture booms in both carbon composite and aluminium, with a choice of design/ operating systems: performance boom MKIII, open-ended hydraulic rollaway boom, hydraulic rollaway slab reefing, and Park Avenue.
Furlers & Rigging
As yachts have become larger, sails more powerful and loads more demanding, Rondal has kept pace with upgrades designed to anticipate the trends and exceed the demands.
