Yacht Standing Rigging encompassess the rods, lines and wires that hold up the mast in the required stable and upright position while a yacht is sailing.

The majority of masts on yachts have stainless steel wire rigging. Fibre rigging is a relatively modern concept which is growing in popularity due to it's comparative light weight.

Standing Rigging for cruising yachts is mainly made in a smooth, stiff and strong 1 x 19 construction. Compacted Strand 1 x 7 and 1 x 19 are used for enhanced performance. 7 x 19 is a flexible wire construction for use where the wire needs to turn around e.g. a block or sheave.

Jimmy Green Marine offer a comprehensive range of Specialist Wire Rigging Fittings and associated hardware from Sta-Lok, Petersen Stainless, Blue Wave, Selden and Harken. These are fittings for using on the end of wire and terminals for terminating onto the wire:

Wire Terminals

These are divided into two separate categories:

  • Swaged Terminals - where the terminals are professionally cold forged onto the wire using a hydraulic roller press.
  • Swageless Terminals, also known as Compression, DIY, Hi Mod, Wire Terminals.
    Swageless Terminals are designed to be fitted mechanically by any competent DIY amateur using simple hand tools. The strength is delivered by the clever compression design.

Backstay Insulators

Backstay insulators are fitted in pairs to electrically isolate a section of the backstay on a yacht so that it can be employed as an antenna for a single sideband (SSB) radio.

Rigging Screws and Turnbuckles

Also known as bottlescrews, these fittings are used on yacht shrouds and stays and for architectural purposes to adjust the wire to the required tension.

Turnbuckle Components

Jimmy Green Marine offer the opportunity to purchase all the individual parts of a rigging or bottle screw separately including the bodies or barrels and a wide range of threaded end fittings as replacements or to suit the task in hand.
