Swedish company Seldén’s aluminium-section spars, rigging and fittings are found on quality custom yachts throughout the world. Seldén spars – in particular – have dominated the market for many decades.
So it is not surprising that Kraken Yachts’ policy of fitting the best has lead them to Seldén’s door for its standard aluminium spars.
James Harris of Seldén UK says “Seldén is excited to be working with Kraken Yachts on its range of semi-custom blue water cruisers. We have worked with Kraken designer Kevin Dibley to develop a package of mast and rigging systems that delivers a balance of performance across the range of wind forces and angles, whilst providing the reliability and strength required for extended blue water sailing cruising.
“A combination of a large genoa, close-sheeting upwind jib and a balanced main will deliver a great sailing experience whilst the addition of furling systems will deliver safe and easy handling.
“The Kraken masts have been designed with the requirements of a blue water cruiser in mind with plenty of sail options and the facilities to fit modern electronics packages.
“All the spars for the Kraken range are detailed to a high level to match the level of finish on this blue water range. All the masts come with a high gloss white painted finish as standard, with high polish stainless steel fittings and seamless joints.”
