Spars, Rigging, and Hardware for Sailboats
|S-1 Spar System for CD-10, CD-14 and other Small Boats|
Started in 1977 as an offshoot of Cape Dory Yachts in East Taunton, Massachusetts, Spartan Spars primary mission was to provide spars and rigging up to the standards of the Cape Dory line. As Cape Dory's "in-house" spar division, its goal was to duplicate and/or replace items that had been provided by others (primarily Rig-Rite and Schaefer Spars), as well as to expand its product line to meet the needs of Cape Dory's new, larger yachts.
With this as its heritage, it is no surprise that the Spartan Spar line reflects a heavy-duty, no nonsense, New England design approach, which assures long term, trouble-free and low-maintenance function, by maintaining an efficient simplicity of design.
Spartan Spars are designed to handle the needs of heavy daysailers and conservatively rigged, full keel cruising yachts, from 19 to 40 feet LOA, but are also suitable on a wider range of lower displacement yachts.

---- Spartan Spar Sections
These Spar Sections, and their associated hardware, cover all of the Cape Dory models, as well as all the other boats for which Spartan originally supplied spars. Spartan has also produced many Dingy rigs, notably for the CD-10 and CD-14, using our unique Gunther rig, the S-1 Spar System.
In addition to building new spars, Spartan is committed to servicing its older
products, and maintains a large inventory of parts to do so. Descriptions and pictures of
most parts are available on-site to help you identify most any replacement item. Parts
lists and pricing for the most popular Cape Dory, the Typhoon, are listed separately, See:

We now have technical data and descriptions of all common Spartan Spar Sections and Parts
For Part Numbers, Data and Specifications, See: Spartan Spar Parts.
For Parts Pricing information, See Ordering/Pricing, you will need Part Numbers.
For Technical Assistance and Data not listed on our website, See Spartan Spar Technical. For any inquiries without Part Numbers, we will need to know which Spar Section(s) the part attaches to, and a sketch of the part with dimensions, in addition to all boat details, including model, length, and year of manufacture. Please Note: Because of frequent changes in boat models, constant design improvements, and numerous other variations, it is impossible for us to know exactly which Spar Sections you have on your boat, and what parts you need. If you are unable to determine your Spar Section from the data on-site, we can do so if you forward a tracing of the Section and its Maximum Outside Dimensions. Please remember that Spar Parts are not specific to a particular Boat, but to the Spar Section to which they attach. (See Spartan Mast Sections, Spartan Boom Sections, or Spartan Spreader Sections).
