Selden Gennaker Bowsprit Kit


Selden Gennaker Bowsprit Kit


An extendable gennaker bowsprit enables you to fly your gennaker in clear air with a sufficient separation from the forestay. Tack your sail to the bowsprit, push it out and fix the bowsprit to a pad eye. A plug-and-play solution for more projected sail area.

SKU: Selden Bowsprit Category:

Extendable gennaker bowsprit. Just fit the two stainless steel pad eyes to the deck in line with a bow bracket. These bracket is a stainless ring with a low friction poly-amide inner lining through which the bowsprit slides into the “active” position.

After the gennaker is doused, the bowsprit can slide back and be secured to the aft eye. If required, it can be quickly removed and stowed securely below.

The gennaker tack-line runs through the bowsprit, entering and leaving via well rounded holes, and then aft to the cockpit. An alternative is to fit an external tack block at the outboard end.
