HALL LOCATIONS // HALL US

Hall Spars & Rigging's North American factory is in Bristol, RI, a waterfront town on the East Coast of the US, between Boston and New York. Hall Spars was founded here in 1980 by Eric Hall, President of Hall Spars, and Phil Garland, Vice President. Ben Hall, Vice President, also works from Bristol.

When it was founded in the summer of 1980, Hall occupied 7 Burnside St., the current home of the Herreshoff Marine Museum. A move was made to a larger factory at 17 Peckham Drive in 1990 and then to the current facility in 2004.

The factory consists of two buildings totaling 7158 M² of production space, and there are two autoclaves in the factory. The main 45-meter autoclave was built to Hall specifications, and it processes carbon under 6-bar pressure at a temperature of 121°C. All curing is monitored and controlled by computer. This autoclave was designed to create masts for the America's Cup and to manufacture most superyacht masts in one piece, in one cure cycle. This advantage sets Hall apart from other carbon spar manufacturers. A second autoclave measures 20m and processes smaller carbon parts and prototypes.

The Hall team paints all masts in the 60-meter paint booth. In-house painting requires minimal movement of large masts and allows close monitoring of finish quality.
