A few days before the launching of the Wally 50 superyacht Better Place at ISA Yachts, in Ancona, Italy, Hall Spars’ experts successfully completed the stepping of her 67.5 metre long carbon mast, the longest ever manufactured by the US facility.
The exclusive 50 metre sailing yacht has been equipped with a four-spreader high modulus carbon mast, an Oceanfurl boom, also the largest ever built by Hall – delivered by the New Zealand factory – and a unique mast collar to support all halyards and sheets.
Mounted on the spreaders stand 18 antennas for the ultimate monitoring and navigation systems.
The mast stepping, carefully planned and supervised by Hall Med’s manager Andrea Merani, was smooth and neat even if, with the boat on the hard, it was necessary to hoist the mast butt 12 metres high to feed the mast collar on the deck. Shroud loads on this kind of mast can reach up to 90 tons each!
