Barton prevents boom fall

The Barton Boomstrut is a patented design which supports and lifts the boom ensuring it will never again fall accidentally.

Distributed in the EU by sole supplier, Barton Marine, the Boomstrut comes in six sizes to suit yachts up to 40ft and is also ideal for sailing schools, training boats, trailer sailors and cruising dayboats.

The patented flexing spring provides a fast response and constant force for vang efficiency giving key benefits of no more topping lift problems, no adjustments and no hang-ups.

Available in silver anodising with white rods or black anodising with black rods, the Boomstrut’s lightweight and 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 upwards. Releasing straightens the rods, thereby lifting and supporting the boom.

Easy installation

The Boomstrut has a maintenance-free design which eliminates friction and sliding parts and is easy to install. With no extra parts of drilling required, the Boomstrut is tied off at the mast to secure in place. The fully adjustable webbing cradle supports the boom without restricting its rolling around the central axis.

There is no need to replace existing hardware; instead the Boomstrut mounts independently inside the existing kicking strap tackle. The mast fitting can use the existing luff groove and the boom bracket is suitable for both round and flat boom profiles.

The Boomstrut is fitted to a large number of yachts, including those manufactured by Beneteau, Jeanneau and Moody.
