According to the 37th America's Cup Protocol, some components of the new AC75 yachts are One Design, and the mast is one of them.

This means that it is the same for all boats participating in the Barcelona edition and cannot be subject to research and development.

The production of a mast conceived to deliver top performance, and simultaneously comply with specific measurements and precise parameters, is no simple feat.

Brendan Jones, Boat builder and mast construction manager at Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli takes us through the manufacturing process of the AC75 mast.
