Fairlie Riggers -Our Story

John McColgan - Master Rigger began an apprenticeship in 1979 completing training in 1983. 

John has worked on various projects for the Royal Navy whilst employed with BAE Systems based in Glasgow.   His role here was to manufacture rigging warrants which included guard wires, flight deck nets; life lines, mooring ropes, bollard strops which is a small selection of items being manufactured at the time for the Type 22/23 Frigates and Type 45 Destroyers to name but a few.

A move into the marine industry in the mid eighties allowed John to become one of a very limited and qualified Master Riggers.  In the late ninety's Fairlie Riggers was born when he opened his own loft.  Fairlie Rigger's now have a wide customer base who own traditional yachts, modern yachts and motorsailers.
