Re-rigging in Martinique

I'm planning to get all the standing rigging on my Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 362 replaced by the end of the year.

The boat is currently in Grenada and I'll be moving North after the hurricane season. Can anyone recommend a good rigging shop in Le Marin, Martinique?

Thanks in advance.

Many cruisers use FKG Rigging in St Maarten. I haven't used them personally, but I've heard good things about them.

Yep. There is a rigging place is in the Carenage le Marin complex.

FKG, as another poster said, is a well known shop too, except for a small boat you can use any rigger who can order the fittings and roll clean swages. Probably Grenada is your best shot.

I have used FKG in St. Maarten and they were good. However, my boat is in Grenada now and I would be happy to let Grenada Marine do the work. They have been good with other stuff for me though I have yet to have any rigging done

We had a replacement furler installed by Caribe-Marine in LeMarin. Good professional work, competent qualified riggers - well recommended. Yes, expensive but I wouldn't say they are any more expensive than Grenada (where we are now located).

Re: Re-rigging in Martinique

Martinique must be one of my best places to sail in the Caribbean, I found this great article on the Yachtoo.net website which helped me to pick the best places to see in Martinique. Also you have lots of great information also for different sailing location around the Caribbean, highly recommend it.
