The Barton Boomstrut is a great boom management solution for boats that either don't have a topping lift or using the topping lift requires going forward to the mast.  A pair of flexible composite rods bend under the downward pull of the vang/kicker and straighten to support the boom when the vang is eased. 


  • Six sizes to suit yachts from dinghies up to 12m/40ft LOA
  • Patented flexing spring provides fast response and a constant force for vang efficiency
    The boomstrut's lightweight, low-profile design features two flexible coated fibreglass rods which provide the force to support the boom. Pulling the boom downwith a conventional kicker causes the Boomstrut to flex upwards; 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.
  • Simple-to-follow instructions
    The Boomstrut is supplied with complete fitting instructions and more comprehensive details are available on our website, www.bartonmarine.com.
  • 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.

    All parts are from high-grade stainless steel and Spectro grey anodised aluminium for good looks and durability.
