Product Features:

This series 42 traveller car has been designed to match the beautiful classic lines of the new Spirit Yachts 65DH. The key feature of the design of this car is that the mainsheet lead from the car to the end of the track is kept as low as possible, the mainsheet sheave bearing surface is only 75mm above the deck. This low lead is achieved with a pivoting stirrup fabricated in St.steel, the mainsheet passes through the centre of the pivot foot thus keeping the whole profile of the car as low as possible. All st.steel components used on this car are buffed and highly hand polished and the Spirit Yachts logo engraved into the side of the stirrup adds that final touch. This car is used with a 2:1 purchase athwartships style of mainsheet system. Control lines are attached to the car via flush machined fittings at each end of the car. The mainsheet sheaves used in the stirrup are 75mm plain bearing high load sheaves with torlon side thrust balls to keep the stirrup as compact and efficient as possible. This car is fitted to a St.steel buffed and highly hand polished series 42 track T042-1464 and runs on torlon ball bearings.
