Assuming that's the case when it's "the same again" 

 

What would the time be if you were to get a new one designed from scratch? 

 

Double it, at least.  A lot of coordination between rig builder and naval architect on righting moments, panel specs, standing rigging preferences and termination details, you name it. Then with the electronics people for the radars etc, including their mass and height. 80% of the job is engineering and design.  The build is relatively easy.

Nope, it took 9 months. It was designed from scratch & the new rig was totally different to the original B&R rig. We also experimented with a few things on the new rig using  pultrusion components and an internal web design, it took ages to get that pultrusion profile right and slowed us down heaps.

High Modulus UK did the engineering, Derektors in Dania, FL built the rig using many Kiwi expats leading the carbon work. NAVTEC built the rigging, Doyle did the sails. The rig dropped on Christmas eve 1998 in the Caribbean, mid January 1999 we motored to FTL, fixed the significant damage to the boat, put the boat into MCA survey, built the rig & we were doing sea trials in Fort Liquordale late October. Rig build itself was 9 months.

First charter with the new rig was in Antigua December 1, 1998.

Good times!

Now that's a good program.  Well done.

This was a big day! Dropped the rig on a 131ft Farr designed charter boat.

 

One of the Mirabella sisters?
