Our Story

Our History


Mario Ruel established Ruel Rigging in 1994 but has been involved in the marine rigging world since 1982. He is an experienced rigger with a reputation for the extraordinary quality and thoroughness of his rigging work. In 2014/2015 he was selected to be the Key Ship Rigger for the making of the Pirates of the Carribean 5 Movie in the Goldcoast. Unfortunately we are not allowed to post any photos, until the film is released in 2017, but we can't wait to share some behind the scenes shots of this awesome project, as soon as we are able!

The Ruel Rigging Team led by Mario operates out of Sydneys Beautiful  Pittwater. We do full rig restoration projects, commissioning of new Hanse yachts and other imported yachts, as well as carrying out installation and maintenance of yacht rigging accessories such as inmast and inboom furlers, head sail furlers, full deck layouts, spinnaker gear kits and more.
