Does such a thing exist?

I know one could simply jerry rig some sort of mast but I'm just curious if one could buy an Emergency dwarf mast and rig should the worst case scenario ever happen.

Yes, it’s called old mast stump with a topping of a spinnaker pole and boom.
All the best,

I've never seen one advertised, but with the number of people buying boats these days, you may have hit upon an idea that could be marketed. I think you might do well by targeting the MacGregor owners to start with .... :) :) :)

Having sailed to remote places I given some thought to how easy it would be to use lumber to make a replacement if located so it can be done. Even plywood would work in a pinch.

Very unlikely that anyone would make an emergency mast kit... since the setup would have to be different for each boat and situation. It would differ, depending on whether the mast was deck or keel stepped, where it broke, wheter it took the standing rigging with it and such.
