Product : Alu Supermodel boom & boomhead Client : Hot Sails Maui

The Supermodel boom by Hot Sails Maui is a top of the line carbon boom, with a very special shape. This is a conceptual study on making a more affordable aluminium version of that boomshape. Biggest challenge is making a molded aluminium boomhead.

Because of the molding of the head the form followed the function and production process, creating a hollow boomhead. This creates opportunities like installing first aid kits or for example an emergency floatation device. The uphaul line of a windsurf sail could easily fit inside.
