“Trogear was fantastic to work with, meeting our specific needs in a responsive and thorough manner. Together we were able to come up with a solution that fit the boat and the engineering demands.”
~Justin Bonar, YYZ – Jeanneau 53
We offer several excellent methods of installation: (See more)
Below Deck Through Hull Hinge Mount:
The preferred installation method is to install a hinge tube across the bow. It is located about 2″ from the top of the deck and about 10-13″ aft from the tip of the bow (specific placement depends on your boat). The fiberglass hinge tube is glassed into the hull, though the A-Sprit is removable.
In some instances, such as boats with a bow anchor roller, deck mounting the Trogear works better. We have custom designed mounting brackets for this purpose which will work in many cases. It is also possible to attach the Bowsprit to the anchor roller. Please contact us or consult your rigger with any questions.
Side Mounts – Below Deck
Made from carbon fiber and suitable for yachts with narrow bows around 40 degrees including trimarans. When using these side mounts, the Bowpsrit attachment point is moved forward offering more extensions past the bow.
ABSOLUTELY. We have custom designed mounting brackets for this purpose which will work in many cases. Please contact us or consult your rigger with any questions.
Please contact us with any questions. In some cases we can design attachments for you. See selection
How far the bowsprit protrudes past the bow depends on the individual boat bow angle and installation method. However, the following are general guidelines.
Extension of tack past the bow:
AS-25 and 30R: ~24″
AS-40 and 50: ~36″
The Trogear Bowsprit can be stowed in an upright position when not in use. No need to worry about paying extra fees at your marina or when at a guest dock!
Yes, we can. In most cases this requires shortening one of our standard sprits and we have done this for several customers already. We will work with you to ensure your requirements are met.
Yes. We have larger models – Trogear MAXI or Trogear ATLAS. Both of the latter have more robust parts to handle more loads.
Let us know what you need along with the details of your yacht and we will recommend the best solution.
Depending on your level of technical skill and overall comfort, you can definitely install the Trogear Bowsprit yourself. It is not a difficult process, but it does require careful measurements to insure the best fit.
If in doubt at all, contact us or consult your rigger.
Options include, deck mounting, through hull and attaching to the anchor roller itself. We have worked with owners and riggers worldwide to determine the best solution, and can design custom parts if needed.
