People behind the product

Maurice Bijma

Lead Engineer - Sailing Systems

“In every project we learn 2 or 3 new things, sometimes more. This can be small things like where to place the halyard clutch or a whole new design at the head of the mast. Collaboration leads to the successful outcome of our projects but on a human level, adds friendships, respect and interest in our individual lives.”

Maurice Bijma - Lead Engineer - Sailing Systems

Ard Ritsema

Lead Engineer – Winches, Feeders and Deck Equipment

The superyacht industry requires powerful winch performance but also a designer’s eye to the structural aesthetics. “Our winches are seaworthy and will last a lifetime. We took the winches off S/Y Juliette recently for maintenance during her refit, even after 35 years they still look and function as if they were built yesterday.”

Edoard Volpe

Engineer - Sailing Systems

When I turned 18, I moved to Genova to study yacht engineering, I fell in love with the physics and engineering that moves a sailing yacht through the water. I continued my studies in the Netherlands, specializing on composite structures and offshore loads (wind and waves). At Rondal, I design the masts from concept to handing over the engineering and service details to the captain and crew.

Bart van der Meer

Engineer - Sailing Systems

I am a naval architect – my career was born from my desire to design, engineer and build the classic pilot cutter I spent my childhood sailing on. Every day at Rondal, I am challenged to guide our clients in balancing the functionality, performance and aesthetics of our integrated sailing systems.
