(Source: Navetec) When the 130ft Vaimiti required a full rigging refit within a restricted timescale, the natural choice was Navtec. Designed by Fauroux in 2003 and built by Trehard Shipyard, she has a relentless sailing calendar and therefore downtime is very costly and must be minimised.
Thanks to the huge efforts of the Navtec Sud Europe team and Performance Gréement, the whole refit was completed in an astonishing 14 days.
The Lorima mast was first unstepped by Performance Gréement team on 31st May. In the following 10 days, Navtec replaced all lateral rod rigging, along with head- and backstays. In addition, brand new Kevlar 25T runners were manufactured on-site in Mandelieu before the mast was restepped and tuned on 12th June.
The unique combination of design capability and on-site manufacturing allows Navtec to offer exceptional service for boats of all sizes looking for performance rigging solutions.
