About AS Yacht Services

A S Yacht Services offers a full yacht rigging service in Argyll and anywhere in  Scotland. We have  a workshop in Kilmelford at the head of Loch Melfort, but can often be found at marinas and boatyards from Creran to Cairnbaan.  We can provide our services all over Scotland.

The business was created in 2017 by Alex Spence, who began his sailing and rigging career 8 years earlier crewing and skippering on commercial and private yachts, ranging in size from 27ft-180ft. Sailing experience is a mixture of  long distance cruising, deliveries and racing, all with very different rigging requirements.

Relevant qualifications include but are not limited to:

  • Yachtmaster Ocean
  • Chieftain Training Yacht Rigging and Rope Splicing
  • Maritime Training Academy Sails and Rigs
  • Safety Working at Height (MCA approved)
  • Wireteknik Swage machine operative

On land Alex has worked alongside rigging companies in Scotland, England, and Mallorca, providing service, maintenance, and rig replacements. This wide range of experience means we will understand your boat and what you are looking for in a rig.

Whether it be the latest in high performance sailing, budget cruising, or continuing the traditional methods we can provide what is needed. For all your rigging needs throughout Argyll and West Scotland contact Alex –  prompt, professional and personal service guaranteed.
