All my spars are made from Canadian Douglas Fir, the grade being ‘Clear and Better’, this becomes evident when you look at the long straight grain and the lack of blemishes.
It’s a material that is a little more expensive and heavier than Spruce but does not suffer from the well known rot to the open grain and especially at the foot of the mast which sits on the keel block.
The Button Pin is formed to take our mast head bands of 58mm and supplied with the mast, however this dimension is common with most of the original galvanised bands.
We fit a 70 x12.5mm sheave supported on its stainless steel spindle this covered on the outside by retaining caps. There are 2 sheaves fitted to our masts and they come with our own mast head band.
The Standard Masts are made to the standard 16ft 1inch, (4906mm) and of a section of 68mm.
The standard Mast cost as detailed above is
£480.00 plus Vat
To have it full prepped and spray finished this additional cost will be
£98.00 plus Vat
The Longboat Cruiser mast is 5085mm in length with a base 80x75mm. This will fit a standard Tabernacle however we can make the base fit your existing fitting.

To have it fully spray varnished finish this additional cost is
