Where to buy Farr 40 (one tonner) mast

We have a secondhand 1990 Turkey built Bruce Farr 40 design (one tonner) 12 m carbon composit racing-sailing boat.

Its boats original mast was broken and by the previous owners replaced by and alluminum mast which was broken too. The breaking point is the union of the two pieces. The exact size of our alluminium mast is 18.65 m.

We would like to buy a one piece mast.(in alluminum) Our boat is in Istanbul so it will best to get it from the near by countries in Mediterrainian region like Greece, Italy..etc

I will be pleased if I get any suggesitions where I can get with a reasonable cost. Thank you for the interest.

I have a similar mast, and we decided to get a one piece Sparcraft Performance, in Europe. Ours came in a 20 meter piece. The only problem was transportation, but you can contact Sparcraft Performance and they will arange for a groupped transport.

Rigging was complete and we opted for carbon Spreaders and stiffners. Had a problem with a boom but they are solving it.
