White Safety Rail Access Track New Product!

For the first time a Safety Access System has been color matched to the vessel. This project is a success. The colored (White) coating is of a more durable coating than the typical hard anodized surface.

Nance and Underwood Rigging extends thanks to the client as well as to the OEM provider who approved this application. Next is a Navy Blue system to match the hull sides on a new build!!


Cruise Shipping Miami 2014
Nance and Underwood Rigging and Sails Exhibited at Cruise Shipping Miami

Nance and Underwood Rigging based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida was a part of the 30th annual Cruise Shipping event at the Miami Beach Convention Center March 10-13 2014.

This event drew a crowd of Mega Yacht to Cruise Ship owners and managers to review the latest in technology for the largest of the charter vessels!

Nance and Underwood combined with Samson Rope and Sta-Lok attended the event as well as participating in numerous networking after parties!

The transition from back yard maintenance to shipyard and mega-yacht / commercial servicing is a natural step forward for our Company to pursue in order to keep providing the quality service our customers have come to enjoy.

This was a great event for all of the vendors and a boon to the South Florida Maritime Community as a whole.
