MAST & RIGGING
For over 50 years Rolly Tasker Mast and Rigging Division has used its expertise in manufacturing several thousand mast sections, service spars and rigging.
Our dedicated team can cover all your marine and architectural rigging requirements. Our latest addition to the workshop is a plasma cutting machine.
Rolly Tasker Spar Making
We offer complete custom built rigs for both mono and multihulls in the 20’ to 80’ range LOA. In addition we supply spinnaker poles, catamaran forebeams, bowsprits, spreaders, mast raising systems, etc., customized to your requirements. These can be for new yachts or replacement needs, including insurance purposes.
Rolly Tasker spar sections are top of the range marine grade 6061-76, aluminium alloy extrusions, featuring thick walls. They may be a fraction heavier than their industrially made counterparts, but the benefits of having a much stronger spar, not to mention a much longer life span when considering long term corrosion more than compensate for this.

Using high quality raw materials, we design and fabricate in house the majority of our mast fittings. Unlike the industrially machined spars our sections don’t have large gaping holes weakening them. We don’t use through bars to attach the spreaders to the mast, considerably weakening it, we fit external or internal stainless steel tangs for this reason, plus they are easier to check and maintain.
Rolly Tasker Rigging
We carry a large inventory of high quality 316 stainless steel wires. We have the facility to roll swage from 2.00mm to 22.00mm diameter wires. We offer a large selection of end fittings, including Navtec, Ronstan, Norseman etc.. In addition we have a selected range of budget swage rigging turnbuckles and end fittings. Apart from yacht rigging we carry out a wide range of architectural rigging work, both for indoor and outdoor applications.
Our skilled staff carry out many different kinds of running rigging work, including splicing, eyes, wire to rope splicing, chain to rope work, rope loops, extensions, reductions, lazy jack systems, to name but a few. We use mainly our high tech PNP ropes manufactured here on site and also foreign imported ones from other rope manufacturers.We stock a substantial range of shackles and snap shackles from such suppliers as Tylaska, Ronstan and Harken to name but a few. We house a separate section for hand finished leather work on boat wheels, chafing patches, etc.
