Ben Porteous joined rigging specialists Marine Results as project manager to take charge of planning and control of the major rig work and non-destructive testing projects that the company’s teams carry out around the world.

Marine Results said it is responsible for rig servicing and repairs on many of the world’s largest cruising and racing superyachts. The company said its business has grown significantly in the last few years and that the appointment of Porteous reflects the diversity of the projects, geographically and technically, which have increased in line with the company’s expansion.

The company said Porteous has 15 years of diverse experience in the marine industry and brings superyacht rigging and management skills, including those gained as former project manager at Ocean Yacht Systems and prior to that at Berthon Boat Co. Ltd. He has already worked on a number of Marine Results’ existing projects, including Mirabella (now m5), and Salute.
