MetalMast Traditional Mast Sections


MetalMast Marine used a wide variety of different Mast Sections during their production history. In addition to building complete spars for Boatbuilders, MetalMast sold tubes and components to others, notably Pearson, who built their own Spars using MetalMast, and other, hardware.

MetalMast Traditional Mast Sections were common on production boats through the late 1980's, the range was then replaced with the 'delta-shaped' Performance Mast Sections. While Traditional Mast Sections are generally out of production, many original Components are in stock, and custom ones are available.

Most common Mast replacement parts are listed underneath the Mast Section that they attach to. To find the part you need, first, determine which Mast Section the part attaches to by measuring the section. Then, click on that section. Descriptions, specifications, and, in many cases photos are displayed there. Please Note: These Mast Sections have been through a long and evolving production history. It is impossible for us to know exactly which spar sections you have on your boat, and what parts you need. If a part you need is not listed on-site, please forward a sketch or photo of the part with measurements and full details including which mast section the part attaches to. If you unable to determine which Mast Section you have from the details given on-site, we will require a tracing of the Mast Section with measurements.

MetalMast Traditional Mast Sections are divided into 2 basic categories based on shape.
Teardrop-shaped Mast Sections, and Oval Mast Sections.
 


MetalMast Teardrop Mast Sections
are generally Teardrop shaped with an internal Flat Track for sail slides, early versions* had no integral track, requiring the installation of Stainless Steel Sailtrack for the mainsail. Newer versions incorporated integral tracks inside the mast for electrical wiring slides. Most, are as pictured, and use the 1/2" round wire slide, MM E-128. Those few with smaller grooves use the K-10908 wiring slides.
