Who are Allspars?

Our extensive experiences in sailing vessels of all shapes and sizes, combined with our technical and engineering knowledge has given us the reputation of excellence in the industry. Our ethos is that we take care, pay attention to the smallest of details and have a total commitment to supplying the highest quality of service. Formed in 1997, Allspars has evolved into one of the world's largest rigging companies, with two UK based workshops. The Head Office based at QAB Marina in Plymouth, our Solent workshop based at Premier Marina Swanwick and our newest branch at the Southwest Shipyard in Falmouth provide the best equipped and stocked workshops for our excellent team of riggers and support staff to deliver what you, our customers need.

The core of the business is Yacht rigging and Spar fabrication, supplying yachts and dinghies with masts & rigging, whether cruising or racing.

Our architectural division utilises our marine expertise to provide service and technical advice to the construction industry.


Our commitment to providing the very best service we can is aided by our British Marine membership. British Marine is the membership organisation for the leisure, superyacht and small commercial marine industry. They lead and promote our industry and work with their members to achieve sustainable growth in a competitive global environment, through the provision of world-class goods and services.

In 2015 Allspars was awarded the much coveted British Marine Retailer of the Year award. Presenting the award British Marine stated:

"Allspars have become the turn to experts in their field, but at their heart remain a local retailer that yacht owners can go to for advice and support, especially in their home city of Plymouth, and that their Solent based operation that opened last year will no doubt establish itself in the same way. "

Architectural Rigging

Because of our in-depth knowledge of rigging, we are able to provide the construction industry with advice and custom design solutions. We work with jobs as simple as balustrade finishing, to jobs requiring 20,000 metres of wire. Since almost all our rigging is produced in house we can be a one stop shop minimizing the headache to you.

We carry both marine and an industrial range of fittings for use in the commercial sector, although the parts are all made using 316 grade Stainless Steel.
