Superyacht Masts features companies that design, manufacture and fit, if required, masts, spars and booms to sailing superyachts. Mast and rigging technology has moved forward at a rapid pace over the last 30 years with the advent of new materials that have enabled lighter and stronger yacht masts to be constructed. Traditional yachts have masts and booms generally made from Sitka spruce, a very strong lightweight pine. Modern yachts have masts, booms and spars made from lightweight aluminium and high performance yachts have masts etc. made from carbon. Mast technology is ever-evolving, utilising computer modelling and new strong and lightweight materials companies are producing masts that can take the stresses that modern racing events and cruising demand. Power yachts also have masts, these are mainly constructed in-house by the build yard in aluminium but specialist companies exist that manufacture carbon yacht masts for large power yachts where weight is an issue.
