The new Removable Mainsheet Track System, which is ideally suited for all yachts up to 11.0m (36ft).
This adaptable mainsheet track system is designed to span between the cockpit seats when sailing but is easily removable to ensure cockpit space is not compromised when you want to relax on board.
The light weight, low, profile design features two flexible coated fibreglass rods which provide the force to support the boom.
There's no need to replace your existing hardware - the Boomstrut mounts independently inside the existing kicking strap tackle.
I have been using Barton fittings for more than 20 years. In particular, in 1988 when I commissioned my J24, I fitted a large number of the Barton deck fittings. The Jib and Genoa tracks complete with Genoa cars with a plunger stop, for example, are still going strong, showing no sign of wear or tear. Winning the European Championships in 1995 and the UK Nationals seven times since then.
This month, we are launching the brand new Series 0 Cheek Blocks, which are ideal for use on dinghies and dayboats. Featuring both plain bearing and ball bearing options, this new design is perfect for horizontal or vertical flush mounting on the deck, mast or boom.
The two fixing holes secure the unit by means of screws or bolts and the maximum line diameter is 5mm.
The Barton Furling Gear is available in two sizes for use on jibs fitted to Dinghies, Catamarans and Day Boats.
Furling Drum (part no:42334) for maximum sail area up to 5.74sqm; or Furling Drum (part:42335) for max.
Sail area of 9.29sqm.
Both sizes use Top Swivel (part no:42336). The jib requires a fixed wire luff and two attachment points at the bowl one for the forestay and one for the fitting drum...
Pip Hare, sponsored by Barton, recently completed the epic Mini Transat from France to Brazil and was confirmed as the first female sailor to finish the race in the 45 boat Series fleet
'This was one of the hardest races I have ever competed in; it was thirty days of tough and at times extreme sailing on a tiny boat with a massive sail area. Exhausting to me and testing to the boat and all the equipment onboard.
Manufactured from marve grade aluminium and spectro grey annodised for high UV stability and durability. Sheaves are precision turned from solid "Ertalyte" bar with a profile that is kind to modern ropes.
Through bolt mounting gives added strength and allows the units to be stacked.
Foot Blocks with Cams are designed to hold the load on the Foot Block allowing the winch to be used for another application.
An established favourite with Sailors around the globe, Barton 'T' Track Genoa cars are compatible with all types of 'T' Track. The advantage of a line adjust system is that the crew do not have to leave the safety of the cockpit to obtain perfect trim when reefing the headsail.
Spectrocolor 2000 is a special bonding process that gives a smooth, tough finish and improves longetivity. It is unique to barton in the marine deck hardware market.
Only 12 centres around the world are approved by Henkel for this application, we are proud to be associated with SPA Aluminium Ltd to bring you this unique technological advance in aluminium anodising.
Robert started Oban Sea School in 1992 with a 9m GRP yacht and started self construction of his present yacht 'Aquila' in 1999. She is a Bruce Roberts 345 10.5m steel sloop, and the layout was designed specifically for the sailing tuition business, she was launched in 2005.
Roberts sailing area, in his opinion, is the best in the world. Mostly the tuition weeks are around the Oban waters to places like Jura, Iona, Staffa, the small isles and S. Skye. The 12 day cruises extend to St Kilda, Outer Hebrides and Orkney.
We have taken a Barton favourite and brought it right up to date. Featuring a newly designed swivel and profiled swivel arm, the Swivel Bullseye is now fitted with a unitary bullseye leading to a Kevlar K Cam and top fairlead.
The system makes reefing your mainsail a quick and easy operation. Just lower the sail to a pre-determined mark on the halyard, tension the reefing line and trim the sail – all from the cockpit.

Last season we fitted a Barton two-car mainsheet (windward sheeting system), which requires no adjustment from tack to tack. Irrespective of whether the cars are above or below the centreline, the traveller is simple, economical and very effective even under the heaviest of loads.
Available in four sizes to suit 20mm, 25mm and 32mm T Tracks .
Sheaves are turned from Ertalyte to give friction free performance with excellent UV resistance.
25mm and 32mm Cars feature a nylon insert to ensure free smooth running under load and to prevent damage to finish. Also available are towable options allowing a control line to be lead back to the cockpit.
