Southern Spars the world’s leader in design and construction of high performance carbon fibre spars, has released the second in a four part mini film, featuring Southern Spars’ Head of Super Yacht Sales, Paul MacDonald alongside Yacht Designer, Malcolm McKeon and Owner’s Rep Gregory Monks.

The series gives a behind the scenes look at the project development and design phases of the Malcolm McKeon MM597 project, currently in build at Royal Huisman shipyard.

In the second installment, Paul MacDonald explains how Southern Spars is the only mast builder in the world that can provide a fully integrated package to projects such as the MM597 by using its proprietary software MemBrain. The system allows the unification of specifications of the Southern Spars rig as it relates to the Future Fibres rigging and the sails of North Sails.

This unparalleled and unique capability guarantees Malcolm McKeon Designs and yacht designers alike, the peace of mind that all the components fit perfectly on first launch and ensure the rigging configurations works flawlessly from the moment the yacht touches the water.

The film does a great job at presenting the challenges faced by yacht designers and naval architects as they calculate the balance of fulfilling the owners’ dreams, while pushing the boundaries of technological innovations to deliver a finished product in the most elegant packaging possible
