Northland Spars & Rigging
Quality & Experience You Can Trust. On Time. On Budget.
When the wind is blowing 30+ knots with 3-4 metre seas, the Sea doesn’t care if you saved a few hundred dollars. Over the lifetime of your rigging, that few hundred dollars turns into a few cents. The difference between Lowest Price and Quality & Experience is the confidence that the work done will hold up to the harsh conditions the sea will offer.
NSR has been providing mast & rigging services in the Bay of Islands and Whangarei to yachtsman for over 15 years. Our staff have a combined experience of over 75yrs. With over 400 boats clearing into Opua each year and a large number of NZ boats that live or cruise the Bay of Islands, we have seen and repaired every type of mast and a wide variety of problems and issues. We offer expert advice and solutions supplying everything from a simple rig check or rig tune through to a complete refit.
NSR Opua factory is the largest Full Service rigging shop north of Auckland. Full Service means all the repairs to your mast or vessel are carried out by NSR staff, no sub-contractors. NSR builds and repairs Aluminum boats so have certified welders on staff. If you have an aluminium boat we have mobile welding equipment to facilitate repairs to the vessel. The shop is large enough to fit several 30M masts but we are also small enough to repair Dingy masts. No job is to small.
We use only Quality Proven materials and parts on your boat. We don’t substitute parts from OEM which means it may be more expensive but it FITS Correctly. SeaRig, Hamma, KOS, Navtec, Sta-lok, Harken, Profurl, Selden, Swageturn, Fineline are just a few of the products we use. Older mast with hard to find parts? Not a problem. If we can’t locate the parts we can fabricate. As a boat builder we can procure just about anything you may need for your boat even if it doesn’t have anything to do with masts or rigging.
DIY – No problem. We can do as much or as little as you the customer requires. If all you need are parts, give us an opportunity to provide a competitive quote. We don’t just sell the parts; we can provide the technical support to make sure you get what you need to do the job.
