Well, you could move the a lot of the hardware over from the existing mast, but it would be a lot of work and unless you did it yourself, it would probably be more expensive than buying the entire mast.
You'll probably have to replace the rigging too—and given the age of the boat, that might not be a bad idea.

Is there somewhere I can check the cost (and once I am at it, for a proper rotating mast cost?)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
