Offshore Spars is a global leader in the design and manufacture of composite spars and other composite structures. Since 1976 the core focus of the company has been spar manufacturing within the sailing industry where the company has grown from a small regional supplier to a global supplier and brand in the Superyacht industry. In the early 1990’s Offshore Spars became a pioneer in carbon fiber composite manufacturing technology and has been maintaining and perfecting those skills ever since. That experience is now enabling the company to bring the advantages of high strength, low weight composites to other industries such as Aerospace, Agriculture, and Military. Moving forward Offshore Spars’ vision is to maintain its position as an industry leader in marine composite manufacturing while simultaneously branching out to new industries which require the knowledge, skill, and reputation the Offshore Spars brand has grown to represent.
