Southern Spars has joined forces with Magma Structures to deliver a new generation of DynaRigs.
The DynaRig concept is used as an alternative to conventional rigs for superyacht owners who are looking to reduce crew numbers. To date, the DynaRig system has been installed on two superyachts, the Maltese Falcon and Black Pearl. The team at Magma is also behind the largest freestanding rig in the world on the Sailing Yacht A.
The partnership aims to make the high-performance rig more accessible.
“We know the DynaRig concept is excellent for sailing superyachts, as proven by the first rig built for Tom Perkin’s Maltese Falcon,” said Damon Roberts director Magma Structures.
“The recent successes of Black Pearl and ongoing performance of Maltese Falcon have energized interest in the market and I am confident, Southern Spars, whose core business is mast-making will develop the next generation of DynaRigs.”
Sam Watson, Southern Spars CEO, added: “We are delighted to join forces with Magma Structures. Their unique experience in designing, delivering and maintaining DynaRigs combined with the NTG analysis, engineering and manufacturing capabilities will enable Southern Spars to drive the continuous improvement of the DynaRig concept.
“None of this would have been possible without the innovative spirit of Magma Structures, led by Damon and naval architect Gerard Dijkstra.”
Southern Spars will use simulation data from the North Sails Design Suite to assess overall sailing performance for the best engineering decisions. The North Design Suite has now been expanded to include DynaRig yachts.
