Rig Inspections & Reports

Essential for those without expert knowledge and owners who do not go aloft. The Doyle Rigging mast and rigging inspection provides a completely impartial overview of the condition of your mast and standing rigging. For all yachts, from one season old to very old, these reports will give you annual rig records for your future reference.

Terms & Conditions Apply: A rig inspection includes photos and a full written report. This visual inspection will include mast, spars, all running and standing rigging. This is a mobile service so our rigging technicians will carry out the inspection at your boats current location. Rig Inspections can only be done with the boat in the water and alongside a dock. Rig Inspections cannot be done while the boat is out of the water. This inspection is compiled following a visual check. Inspection is for the boat owner only and is not transferable. It cannot be used to raise finance or insurance for the vessel.
