Multi-Directional Support


MDS sail cars make sail hoisting easy and quick. 

A full batten mainsail always creates a side load on the cars, particularly when you release the halyard for taking a reef.

Each car has side-load absorbing wheels that run against the guiding flanges in the luff groove. The interaction between the mast section and the MDS car deals with longitudinal loads as well as side loads. This is the essence of the MDS concept. Since the cars need no external track, there is also less weight aloft, which Maestro boats try to avoid in all construction.

The MDS cars are easy to keep clean and are easy to install or remove from the luff groove.






Maestro 40 rig is equipped with double 20 degree swept back spreaders. This means that running backstays are not needed.

Maestro 40 boom is equipped with Single Line Reef system. All you do is ease off the halyard to premarked reefing point points and then haul in on the reefing line.

A system of guided blocks inside the boom ensures that the lines do not tangle. The system has a 2:1 gear ratio, making reefing fast and simple, without having to leave the cockpit.





Rodkicker with gas spring prevents the boom from dropping into cockpit or onto the sprayhood. When the kicking strap is released, it lifts boom opening the leech of the sail.

The rodkicker with gas spring replaces the topping lift, making reefing fast and simple.
