She won six prices, including overall winnaar and "Je ne sais quoi" price. Together with our colleagues of De Haas RVS, Touchwood and Tuned rigs&ropes we're very proud of that.

Two masts on transport

On one and the same day two Brasker Masts went on transport. The first is a 20 metre long skûtsje mast. Made of Oregon Pine, with Western Red Cedar inside, but also stiff Cumaru to strengthen the mast.
The second mast is for a new Lemsteraak,
which is made of Sitka Spruce.

At Les Voiles de St. Tropez Schooner "Elena" impresses with the extra long boom, made by Brasker Masten. It sticks out above the quay and one has to be careful of the lampposts!

Ballet at the masts workshop

Commisioned by the Schooner "Elena" Brasker Masten makes an extra long boom of sitka spruce. We are talking about a length of 26 meter and a diameter of 51 cm!
The long parts have to be inverted and that is only possible by picking it up (with 5 men), walk outside, turn on the street and walk back again. A realy nice ballet!

Brasker Masten: masten voor 8mR klasse

Brasker Masten makes also "ordinary" beautiful masts
Recently a client asked if we also make ordinary masts, for barges and flatbottoms. They got the impression from our website that we only produce for the big schooners or the one-designclasses.
But of course we make masts for smaller boats! This spring we made spars for about 10 flatbottoms. Very beautiful, with a high quality and obviously competitive.
Here you see the "Raagskop", satisfied with a nice new Brasker Mast.
