For Sailboats 18′-50′
Made from carbon fiber, the Trogear Adjustable Bowsprits are lightweight, strong and easy to use. The Trogear’s solid, triangular design offers the best weight to strength ratio on the market.
Uniquely designed with a hinged installation and adjustable bobstay, it can be placed upright to attach sails or stow at the dock. The luff tension of the sail is adjustable from the cockpit via a control line.
It is an ideal aftermarket solution for your sailboat, and facilitates flying Asymmetrical Spinnakers and Code 0s. It is suitable for monohull and multihull boats 18-50ft.
The Trogear Bowsprit can be mounted below the deck line for extra strength and to keep your deck clear of obstructions or on the deck or anchor roller should you need to. In all cases it is removable.
