CSI Rudders

Composite Solutions builds the finest rudders and rudder posts available. Since 1997, CSI has the enviable record of having built nearly 1000 rudders and shafts WITHOUT A FAILURE. We are justifiably proud of this record.Compare our rudders to any other builder’s and you will see and feel the differences. Whether you are upgrading your present boat or building the yacht of your dreams, Composite Solutions should be in your future.

Our design, engineering, manufacturing process and finish quality have brought us to the forefront of designers and boat builders. Our female molded blades over autoclave-cured posts require little or no fairing in all cases. The same process and quality that go into our high tech blades are used for all clients, whether for America’s Cup Yachts or refits on older cruisers.

CSI has assembled an impressive client list.

Most recently, CSI became the dedicated supplier to the Volvo 70 Puma Ocean Race Team. We supplied all of the steering systems, cannards, bowsprit and other structural components. As well as being “on call” for any of their composite needs during the race which is currently ongoing.
