Marine Results carries out mast refit on superyacht ‘Hyperion’ at the Newport Shipyard November 2011
The 156 ft (47 metres) performance sailing yacht Hyperion has just undergone a full mast refit, as part of a required 8 year service.
While in Newport Shipyard, Marine Results pulled out her massive 59 metre carbon fibre rig to carry out a full service and inspection.
The rig was put back in during November, and Hyperion has now gone to the Caribbean for the charter season.
This video, shows just how complex a job of this type is, and how much planning and machinery is involved, as well as people.
The rig exerts some 200 compressive tons at the base. She has 59 km of wiring and 13.000 square feet of sail area.
Marine Results is one of the world’s leading specialist rigging companies for superyachts and racing yachts.
