About Offshore Rigging

Offshore Rigging Services was founded in 2012 and hit the ground running when they signed the contract to be the one design rope supplier for the VO65s in the 2014-2015 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. A massive undertaking, supplying over 6,500 one design items to the fleet, a challenge for sure but detailed planning, a great supplier and skilled riggers made it happen seamlessly.

This project was so successful that they have remained the Running Rigging Supplier for the 2017-2018 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race, supporting the teams on-site each stopover as well as splicing all ropes in the new Palma de Mallorca workshop.

With more than 15 years experience in both grand prix yacht racing and the super yacht industry, we will ensure our customers receive the best independent advice on how to ensure their yacht has a rigging package that offers the highest performance and reliability levels available.

Whether you are starting out on a new build project or simply want to update some of your running rigging we can advise you on the best possible course. An overview of the projects we have been involved in can be found here.
