Marine Results, specialising in the inspection and rigging of grand prix yachts and superyachts, have undertaken a rigging of a very unique project: a 65m Traditionally Styled Wooden Phinisi Yacht LAMIMA. Superyacht LAMIMA is an Indonesian sailing ketch constructed on the beach in Bira, in the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia. She was then towed to Italthai Marine in Bangkok for outfitting.
Despite her traditional specification sailing yacht Lamima is to be operated by a luxury cruise company, offering exotic itineraries to 14 discerning passengers, with a high standard of on board comfort and cuisine.
Marine Results is working with naval architects and the build team to specify and manufacture the standing and running rigging. Much of the bespoke rigging package is being completed onsite, with wire brought in from China and fittings from Europe.
The team is being led by Ben Wood who explains “Marine Results is handling the management of virtually every aspect from the deck up. We have been responsible for all the mast hardware design and we contracted Fairlie Yachts for their invaluable input into the traditional design. We are now managing the onsite spar and mast hardware assembly and ultimately the rigging and stepping.” He adds “We have supplied 4.4 kilometres of rope and approximately one tonne of blocks, shackles and running rigging hardware.”
Three Marine Results specialists are on site with the local workforce, as well as other European companies who have been drafted into the project. The wooden masts were built in Spain of fast growing sustainable hemlock.
Suffolk Composite Structures are working with Marine Results on component designs including chainplates.
“We will be stepping the rig ashore in early October,” says Ben “which is unusual, as we normally step with the vessel in the water. This whole project has involved using an extremely diverse range of specialist skills to produce and rig these traditional-style wooden spars.”
Lamima superyacht will be the largest sailing phinisi in existence when she is completed in October. Her main mast and topmast measures 50 metres overall while the mizzen mast and topmast is 48 metres. The entire rigging package weighs in at about 22 tonnes.
