Rigging and Sails package

Selecting a mast, rigging and sails supplier all need to be considered together. Although the race sails will be manufactured at a much later date, the various designers work together to create a rig and race sail package that functions well and works seamlessly together. Performance Yacht Brokerage can liaise with the various suppliers and provide a report on the latest options available as well and build slots and lead times.

Component Ordering and Installation

Managing a new race yacht build is also very much about the various components that create the racing yacht and her systems.

A central coordinator is vital to ensure that the entire build team are all well informed and up to date with the latest build developments and progress. Performance Yacht Brokerage is that key coordinator and will continuously monitor the build progress and provide regular feedback on progress.
