NEW mast Section
Developed with Mike McNamara and Mike Holmes, the Seldén Cumulus section is ideally suited to the Albacore. The new section is lighter than the orginal
sleeved ’D’ section, with an improved taper, creating a more DYNAMIC rig. With similar ’static’ stiffness, existing mainsail luff curves will suit, with the speed and reward coming from the more user friendly section.

As standard, all fittings below deck are supplied loose for dealer to fit to suit the boat’s sheerline, and customer’s specific requirements. Mast is supplied with plain heel plug and all fittings including fully adjustable spreaders. Mast is fitted with drawlines for fast attachment of rigging.

Choose a Seldén mast and you will find many performance enhancing features unique to our products, for example: l The Seldén tapering system ensures that our tapers are minimum size and weight. This gives low windage, centre of gravity and topmast weight. This maximises your speed by enabling the topmast to react quickly to gusts and waves giving better acceleration, a smoother ride upwind and, ultimately, more races won! l Automated welding keeps excess heat out of the
taper for guaranteed consistency and performance. The weld produced is so perfect that there is no need to mechanically grind the weld (which can induce inconsistencies). This means that once we have finalised a winning design, you can be sure that your spar will perform identically to the champions. l All masts are heat treated in our purposedesigned oven. This artificial hardening ensures that you get maximum performance from the high performance aluminium alloy. l Our spars pass through a purpose-developed bead-peening machine. This gives the mast a perfect satin finish that dramatically improves fatigue properties, giving you a mast that will perform reliably for many years. l Top quality fittings such as our fully adjustable spreader bracket and highly durable cast gooseneck ensure speed and reliability on the racecourse.
