Mat Rigging have just replaced all our rigging and we are happy with the work done by Jonathan and his colleague Julien. They did the work at the technical pontoon at Marina Taina which has much better space and facilities for rigging work (rather than at Papeete). The timescale was very much driven by the time it took to import wire, furlers etc from Europe which slowed us down - so worth making sure you have agreed and checked the full spec and equipment requirements at the outset. Once everything finally arrived they did a good and efficient job.
11-2020 SV Tintamarre
Jonathan Morvan carried out a complete re-rig for Tintamarre. Initially this was just a replacement of our inner Ds. Jon did a great job, and we went ahead with the rest of the boat. This was not the most efficient way to carry out the work, as for each order we had to wait for the parts to be delivered in to him from Europe, (so you can be sure the components are new stock) and then for weather and Jon's availability (he is a busy man). He did a very professional job, and we are pleased with the work done. My only criticism is that he didn't always stay in touch as well as I would have liked...but actually, once he knew this was important to me things improved. Work is certificated.

We used Mat Rigging for replacement of a V1 and D2 at two different times. The work performed was of a high quality and fair price. We found Jonathan to be reliable and a pleasure to work with. He went to great lengths to obtain parts during the lockdown crisis due to Covid 19.He speaks and writes fluent English.

I can recommend Jonathan Morvan now the boss of Mat Rigging. Jonathan speaks good English. He ordered a stainless steel fork toggle for our forestay. It came from the Netherlands, not China. He and his coworkers did a thorough and professional repair.

Mat the rigger has sold his company and sailed off with his family.
Jonathan Morvan has taken over. He's a young French guy who lives on a yacht in the Papeete marina. Keeps the same business contact details as Mat.

We were recommended Matt Rigging Services when in Marina Taina, again he seemed constantly booked up, when we contacted Polynesia Yacht Services(PYS) we were on the schedule and it was worth the 10% fee charged for going through Laurent.
10-2019 SV Panache
has a reputation as the best rigger in Tahiti. We had him inspect our rigging.
He found several issues. The manufacturer replaced the parts under warranty and
Mat did the installation. The inspection was 20,000XPF but money very well
10-17 SV Fandango Ian mentioned on the SSB Poly Mag net that he had great results with Matt re-rigging his boat. The prices were fair and Matt came in under his original quote. Ian said it was less than he would have paid in NZ.
1-17 SV Jacaranda We used him. He showed up at the boat when he said he would and charged us his quoted price. Good guy and would recommend him
