As the 2015 summer season in New Zealand comes to an end, Hall Spars & Rigging New Zealand is delighted to announce that they have worked on several visiting superyachts, going through refit and maintenance work. These projects have included work for existing Hall Spars customers, comprising the 37m Dubois-designed charter yacht Bliss and Escapade yacht, the 30,8m Oyster 100 luxury yacht Sarafin as well as the 30,5m CNB yacht Chrisco.
Superyacht Bliss went through a five-year service on her five-spreader carbon Hall Spars mast and Oceanfurl boom. The vessel was launched by the well known NZ builder Yachting Developments in 2009.
Constructed by the prestigious NZ shipyard Fitzroy Yachts last year, luxury yacht Escapade underwent a one-year service, with overall work including the servicing of her Hall Spars High Modulus seamless carbon mast, Oceanfurl boom and SCR carbon aerofoil continuous rigging. Escapade represents the first yacht of her size to feature solid carbon continuous aerofoil rigging, which equates to reduced wind resistance.
“Hall Spars’ global network provides support for all our superyacht clients, both new and current, but we always particularly enjoy working with superyacht customers at home here in New Zealand,” said Dave Ridley, Operations Manager at Hall Spars NZ. “It was a pleasure working with these long-term customers, and gratifying that they chose to work with us once again.”
