Boomstrut for Boats up to 7.5m

The Boomstrut is a system designed to support the boom. The light weight, low profile design features two coated flexible fibreglass rods which provide the force to support the boom. Pulling the boom down causes the Boomstrut to flex upwards, releasing straightens the rods thereby lifting the boom.

Quality Construction

The Boomstrut comes in a complete kit ready to install and utilises
your current kicking strap tackle. There is no requirement to replace existing hardware, just fit the Boomstrut and remove the topping lift. The boom fitting is contoured to fit both round and flat booms and the mast fitting can slide in most luff grooves to avoid drilling.

Operating Principle

The 2 fibreglass rods are designed to have enough back pressure to support the weight of both boom and mainsail.

Boomstrut Benefits
  • Supports the boom at all times
  • Prevents accidents when the topping lift is incorrectly set or adjusted
  • Safer sail handling in bad weather or when sailing short handed (reefing, raising or lowering mainsail)
  • Lightweight, saves windage aloft
  • Immediate smooth response. No adjustments needed
  • No requirement for a topping lift ; it provides an additional mainsail halyard
  • Fits all types of mast and boom extrusions

  • 2 coated flexible fibreglass rods giving sufficient back pressure to support the boom and mainsail
