We have recently developed a new custom carbon fiber hinged mast for Fleming Yachts. For years, our hinged aluminum masts have provided Great Loop capabilities to Fleming owners. By utilizing carbon fiber in place of aluminum, not only does the mast become stronger, but its overall weight is reduced considerably at the highest portion of the vessel. With less topside weight, folding the mast back is more manageable for one person and less strain at the hinge point is certainly appreciated structurally. This hinge provides lower air draft for bridge clearance which allows the Fleming 55, 58, and 65 to all travel the entirety of the Great Loop when equipped with a BYS custom mast.
