Seldén Mast has developed its first carbon furling mast, a lighter weight furling rig designed to enhance the performance of cruising yachts in the 48ft – 75ft range.
This is the first of Seldén’s new mast range and comes with an electric drive and hydraulic outhaul option
“Larger boats with small crews call for smart sail handling and we are constantly pushing our product development in that direction,” said Seldén’s CEO, Peter Rönnbäck. “The benefits of carbon fibre masts have been appreciated by racing sailors for decades so why wouldn’t a cruising sailor be offered the same deal?”
Seldén’s carbon masts, both furling and conventional, are manufactured at its facility in Gosport using its computer-controlled mandrel filament winding technique.
