The Rigging Loft Inc was established in 1984 to provide sailboat
rigging, yacht hardware and provide on site hands on, quality rigging
services to sail makers, boat yards and boat builders in South Eastern
Massachusetts. The need for a direct link to the end consumer became
evident in the late 80's as often we received orders for inappropriate
and non compatible running rigging, standing rigging and hardware.
Pricing became an issue as many of our wholesale accounts failed to
acknowledge the impact of the shrinking dollar of the late 80's and
early 90's. Rigging Only was established to fill this void. Rigging

Shop On Line:
Our on line store is up and running. There are lots of improvements
needed in our initial attempt but you will have access to current
pricing on all of our mfg's products; remember we're riggers, not IT
guys. If you can't find what your looking for easily have the
manufacturer's part numbers available and use the search function for
current pricing for yacht and sailing hardware
Comparing: At Rigging Only
we encourage price comparison. We have noticed that some of the on line
sailing stores have increased prices significantly. Most of these folks
have an office only and do not have any significant hands on experience
with the gear you are purchasing. Their products are generally drop
shipped from a wholesaler and the actual assemblies for running rigging,
life lines, and standing rigging are contracted out to a sailboat shop
like ours and based on the discount they receive. Many of these
business's consist of folks who are programming people that happen to
have sailing as a hobby. Rigging Only is
a full rigging service shop and sailing store owned and operated by
riggers. Our technicians are trouble shooting, problem solving, and
repairing rigging on boats like yours everyday. All running
rigging, standing rigging, life lines, and wire splices, are made right
here in our rigging shop and have been for 27 years. We sell the
highest quality sailing line, yacht hardware, and sailboat rigging
available. We deal with the manufacturers of products, not
wholesalers. We know our products. At Rigging Only we're sailors too.
We have the experience and appreciation for the demands placed on gear
and people for both offshore and coastal cruising.

arrived safely and perfectly on time. The lifelines are almost too pretty
to put on the boat and it's a damn pretty boat. The shrouds and backstay
are superb and a perfect fit. If anyone ever wants a referral about
Rigging Only tell them to contact me. R. A. , Curator, N. C.
