The Barton Boomstrut is available in Six sizes to suit yachts up to 12m/40ft LOA. Patented flexing spring provides fast response and a constant force for vang efficiency.

Barton Boomstrut

The boomstrut’s lightweight, low-profile design features two flexible coated fibreglass rods which provide the force to support the boom. Pulling the boom down with a conventional kicker causes the Boomstrut to flex; releasing straightens the rods, thereby lifting and supporting the boom.

Maintenance-free, durable design - Eliminates friction and sliding parts.

Improved performance - Less weight and windage.

Easy installation - There’s no need to replace your existing hardware - the Boomstrut mounts independently inside the existing kicking strap tackle.

The Boomstrut is supplied with complete fitting instructions.

Mast fitting can use existing luff groove - To eliminate drilling, the Boomstrut’s mast bracket can be slotted into your mast’s luff groove.

Contoured boom fitting - The Boomstrut’s boom bracket is contoured to fit both round and flat boom profiles.

Carefully designed & constructed - The Barton Boomstrut has been carefully designed and constructed to eliminate sharp edges, minimise parts and provide trouble-free installation
and use.
