The Mastclimber is a great system as it uses the leg muscles to climb, allowing you to reach the masthead without being exhausted by the climb. And since it rides onto a static line, taut between the deck and the masthead, the Mastclimber prevents you from swaying away from the mast, helplessly, even if the boat heels over making climbing the mast easier and safer.

After a 6 year long trip on our sailboat Jonathan we decided to create our company Croix du Sud Marine in 2010. Its homemade design, followed by 50 000 miles sailing from Port Camargue to New Zealand, living for 6 years on the water led us, from discoveries to encounters , to the desire of an other life after our return! So why not to sell what we would like to have on board!
That's how we started by importing our flagship brand: Garhauer. Since then, our catalog is growing steadily.
Faithful to our ethics we remain on the lookout for judicious equipment on a boat.
