COMPLETED WORK

BENETEAU 50

JOB DETAILS

We were approached by a client with a Beneteau 50 who wanted an inner forestay system on his boat. The customer’s requirement was clear from the outset, the system needed to be removable so that there would not be a permanent obstruction on the foredeck.

THE ALLSPARS SOLUTION

Working closely with Karver we designed a furling system to suit the job and combined this with a Future Fibres torsion stay. We also worked alongside a local sailmakers Ullman Sails on the sails and in fitting deck gear for the sheets, tracks and cars with custom made backing plates from our Plymouth workshop under the deck. Finally we fitted a Karver Halyard Lock so that the whole system could easily be removed.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

The end result was that the customer was delighted with our system and believes the job has “transformed” his boat to allow for easier sail handling especially when short-handed sailing in lots of wind.

HANS CHRISTIAN 41

JOB DETAILS

We were approached by the client’s insurance company who asked us to provide a quote for a new mast to include stepping in Southern Spain. After the quote was received by the insurance company we were granted permission to speak with the client directly, where we were able to take further details of the boat in order to spec the job to the best of our abilities. The boat in this instance was a white painted, somewhat custom rig.

THE ALLSPARS SOLUTION

As the leading Technical Service and Parts Centre for Seldén we worked with them to produce the mast. We loaded it on to our trailer and drove down through Spain to install the rig in Almerimar. We changed all the deck fittings over and presented a fully finished white painted product to the client, complete with all of his original electronics and winches transferred over from his original rig. The sails were modified accordingly so the client could sail across the Atlantic pretty much as soon as we had finished the job.

CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

The customer was pleased with our work and the last we heard he was back enjoying his sailing.
