Our Internally hinge mounted, self closing MastGate (stainless steel 316) is the best for trailer sailors and and if you change sail while on the water.  It is a hands free, self closing operation, and no tools required for use.


Externally mounted MastGates are best for sails left on all season.  We have Fixed, D-ring, and Tethered versions.

Because there are so many mast variations, we will custom design plastic inserts that require little or no installation time.

​​​​​How often are you caught off guard to reef or change sail ?


Balboa-26 sailor says:

"My MastGate fits and works perfectly. We reefed and un-reefed several times in high wind while underway. Reefing has become a sail trimming option as opposed to something to be done ahead of time. Thank you!"


NorthSails ​Sailmaker says:
"I like your product very much.  I am a sailmaker for over 30 years and I always joked that most mast companies never figured out the sail / mast connection. "

Your product is slickest application out there. 
.... YachtShop.ca  will now direct clients to your site as a solution.


Chris K (US Yacht 25 “Chinook”)

The Internal MastGate ... ” I raised,  lowered and reefed several times with no problems.  It was the first time I’ve ever been able to actually go to the second reef, and it was easy at that.  Great product.
Thanks again!"


John C (Beneteau 36.7)  I used to worry about sending some one to the mast to baby sit the slugs.

Now I no longer think about lowering or raising sail since installing my carbon fiber MastGate insert.
