About Dwyer

High Quality Sailboat Spars and Rigging Since 1963

Dwyer Mast & Rigging, formerly known as Dwyer Aluminum Mast Company, was formed in 1963 to provide high-quality sailboat masts, booms, hardware, and rigging. Our formula for growth is simple - we never compromise with quality. By taking advantage of improved manufacturing methods and an ever-increasing volume, we have been able to maintain competitive prices and continue to provide much needed product to sailors, riggers, and boat builders. 

A team of experience craftsmen and machinists produce spars, fittings, and rigging in Bristol, Rhode Island, sharing a 20,000 sq ft state of the art warehouse and manufacturing facility with Zim Sailing. Dwyer Mast & Rigging is a primary supplier for Zim and Hobie Cat sailboats and OEM supplier for various builders across the country. 

Dwyer Mast & Rigging is part of the Starting Line Sailing portfolio of companies, which also includes, Zim Sailing (builder/distributor/retailer) and West Coast Sailing (retailer). Together these companies manufacture, distribute and retail sailboats, sails, parts, apparel and accessories for sailboats under 25’. With 60+ employees across multiple locations, Starting Line Sailing is focused on helping to grow the sport of sailing for everyone.
