Sydney Yacht Rigging

Tempo Masts and Rigging is your one stop rigging and mast refurbishment service centre, conveniently located in Brookvale, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We work closely with boatyards and contractors at both Pittwater and Sydney Harbour to ensure you receive the best possible service.

Our philosophy is simple – to provide safe, cost effective, custom rigging solutions. We never compromise on customer service. With over 40 years of experience working in the design, manufacturing and servicing of yacht masts, we understand every part of the mast and its construction, allowing us to provide a more comprehensive and precise rigging service.

On-Water Rigging Checks

With a boat on Sydney Harbour and connections on Pittwater, we can carry out AYF accredited rigging inspections on the spot. It’s not just your sails that drive the boat, it’s the mast and rigging that’s holding it all together and thus should be checked regularly. The marine environment is harsh and the salt build up as well as the high load applications of sailing will take its toll on your rigging.

Running Rigging Rope, Splicing and Cordage

From hi-tech composite cordage to basic sheet, brace or dock line, we stock an extensive range of Spectra/Dyneema and Polyester double braid. We also have other exotic braids in stock.

For our rigging, we use only the highest quality products and our rope is no different. We use Donaghys rope, they are an Australian owned company and make all their ropes in Melbourne. We have been buying their rope for 10 years and are extremely happy with the performance and quality of their products.
