Masts and Spars

Thu 25 April 2013

New to 2013, Whittle Marine are now producing top quality Masts and Spars made using top quality hand picked Sitka Spruce. Whittle Marine will now produce a Mast or Boom specially to get the most out of your boat.

Whether your after something with a bit more rake or something thats stiffer, Whittle Marine is now offering top quality hand made masts and spars!

 Whittle Marine are now taking off where the late Bob Snow who sadly passed away in the Winter left off. His high standards and attention to detail set a precedent which we strive to achieve. Using some of his machinery and ethos we now aim to push this area of our business and start producing the Rolls Royce of Wooden Masts and Spars.

Here at Whittle marine we are able to produce mast from 2 laminations as per the class rules. 

The masts we produce are made with minimal scarf's appart from one glue line down the middle of the mast where the two lenghth are bonded together. This allows maximum flick at the top of the mast with incredibly even bend characteristics.

A True mast built for performance & longevity.

All masts are sold with a bend test to help identify the correct mast for your boat and sails.
