Gorch Fock

Description Gorch Fock

Currently at Sailmaster B.V., we are working on the repair & restoration of the steel blocks of Gorch Fock.

We recently completed a major down-rig, January 2016, in Elsflether Werft, Elsfleth, Germany. All yards and topgallant masts were rigged down & dis-assembeled for general repair & replacement. Topgallant masts to be stepped & yards crossed spring of this year, with all newly fabricated secondary standing rigging.

Contracted to complete a standing & running rigging refit by the Germany Navy in 2010.
