Sparcraft Pneuvangs


Sparcraft's Pneuvang is unique in that it utilizes 1 or more Pneumatic Gas Shocks as a Spring to support the Boom. Designed for a wide range of boats, Pneuvangs attach to the mast-mounted Vang Toggle and to the Boom Vang Attachment Lug with 14mm Pins (9/16") (included). Units feature an Aluminum Sheave at the top to double the power of any Vang Tackle.

For recommendations on a new Vang for your boat, contact us with Boat details including current Mast and Boom Sections.

Pneuvang Parts
The Sparcraft Pneuvang is virtually trouble-free. But, with time and heavy usage, the Pneumatic Gas Shocks can lose their charge and must be replaced. Compare the Part Number on your unit with the Part Numbers above to determine how many shocks you will need. For replacing Gas Shocks, See Pneuvang Disassembly Instructions.
