Mast and Boom

The GRAND BANKS 42 Classic has an aluminum mast w/ boom that can be folded down for a reduced waterline height of approximately 14' vis about 22' 7" "mast up". The Bimini Top must be folded down to achieve this reduced dimension as well. The mast was intended for use with a steadying sail but that feature was rarely employed for the GB 42's. Now it functions well as a radome mount, for flag & pennant halyards, the spreader / deck lights and so forth.

Air Draft: 23'6" with the mast "up" (note: by lowering the mast, it can be reduced to 15'8" to the top of the Biminiand about 13'3" to the top of the flybridge windscreen by lowering the Bimini top) Mast, aluminum spar, spreaders & boom and with standing rigging, 1x19 stainless steel Tabernacle aluminum base plate, for deck-stepped spar (note: mast installation designed for it to be raised &lowered to reduce air draft)
