RSB Rigging Solutions is a widely reputed rigging company based in the shipyard of STP Shipyard, Palma de Mallorca. From humble beginnings RSB is now a globally recognised rigging company with dedicated Standing and Running Rigging Departments. RSB is also the only company in Spain that has been awarded the certification to grant LEEA approval. Steve Branagh founded RSB in 2005, coming from a pure yachting and sailing background.
He worked as a yacht captain for 18 years prior to moving ashore and starting RSB Rigging Solutions in Mallorca. Having been an avid sailor since childhood, Steve captained and raced on industry shaping yachts worldwide, gaining invaluable experience of the design requirements and the necessary maintenance for standing and running rigging for a vast range of performance yachts.
Steve comments on the experience of launching RSB Rigging Solutions, ‘Understanding the needs and requirements of both Grand-Prix race programmes and busy super yachts, we recognised the opportunity to provide a top quality, reliable and professional rigging service. In September 2005, we decided to move ashore permanently and RSB Rigging Solutions was born.
Since these early days the team has grown to a year round rigging staff of 15 with expertise in standing and running rigging, hydraulics, carbon retrofits and equipment testing. Our team works in partnership with leading rope and hardware suppliers worldwide, and have a fantastic relationship with some of the biggest names in the industry. With a third of the business now through the motor yacht industry, the dedicated splicing department has continued to grow using practical testing facilities and continually refined splicing methods.’
In the last ten years, RSB have un-stepped and re-stepped over 200 rigs, supplied around 400km of rope, and pulled over 10km of masts! If one laid these masts end to end, they would stretch across the whole of Palma bay! RSB has not only become one of the leading rigging companies in the world but also provides the highest quality service in rope and running rigging to the superyacht sector and continue to provide all their customers with the highest achievable standards of service.
RSB are celebrated their 10 Year Anniversary by inviting all their clients to join them for Paella, drinks and music in the STP shipyard on Friday, 9th October.
