Z-Spar Spinnaker Cars for Integral Tracks


Many older Z-Spar Mast Sections feature an Integral Spinnaker Car Track (2" (50mm) or 3 7/16" (87mm) wide) extruded into the forward side. Most Masts will have one side of this track cut out (approximately 4" long) near the deck, to allow for mounting the car without unstepping the mast. If this cutout is not there you will have to cut it, or unstep the mast to install these Spinnaker Cars (except for the plastic, Z-73P-AZT, below).
This Integral External Track (part of the mast) is not to be confused with those Z-Spar Masts with an Add-on Track or Internal Track Receiver Slot(s) designed for Add-on (Insert) Track.
See: Spinnaker Cars for Z-Spar Masts w/ Add-on Tracks.

Most Spinnaker Cars listed here are held in position on the track by means of a line control system. Internal and External Spinnaker Car Line Control Kits are listed below.

Ring Cars are used for Poles with standard Piston or Trigger pole ends, Toggle, Pin, or Bell Cars are used to fit the variety of special inboard Spinnaker Pole Ends available.
Please note that Ring Cars are not designed for, or recommended for vertical pole stowage applications.

Please Note: Z-Spar has discontinued production of all Spinnaker Cars for Masts with an Integral Spinnaker Car Track. Most Spinnaker Cars listed on this page are no longer available, and shown here for reference only.
