Who are we?

Combined, the duo have over 30 years experience of working within high performance, offshore and grand prix racing environments. Previous roles include Chris’ position as Head of Rigging and Test-Boat Captain for the British America’s Cup team and Will’s 10 years as Boat Captain for Alex Thomson’s four Vendée globe campaigns in the IMOCA 60.
What do we do?
We offer specialist and standard rigging and mast services - from inspections, maintenance, and refits - to full project management and onsite regatta support, for both crews and classes.
MRS values the highest levels of craftsmanship, quality products and attention to detail alongside their commitment to delivering sustainable manufacturing techniques.
Where are we?
Our specialist service facility is at Victoria Quay in Gosport, on the South Coast of the UK.
Victoria Quay, at Royal Clarence Yard, offers the ideal set up for the MRS HQ; there’s direct access to the Solent along with deep-water berthing, a 75T amphibious boat hoist, a 50T boat transporter plus a large hard standing for boat storage, repair, and maintenance. There will be further development of the area and ambitions to develop it into a marine service centre for the local industry.
The MRS team can also offer a wide range of its services nationally and internationally.
