No experience with freestanding masts. But fwiw anything out of the norm is often harder to find a buyer for when selling up.

All I can say is that the Nonsuch line uses a free-standing mast.

More info here

Nonsuch (look under "General Info", "Spars & Rigging")

I am looking into building a boat for mostly solo circumnavigation - Sponbergs designs intrigue me for there seeming ease of operation - There is also a "swing rig" from europe that looks interesting - anyone with personal experience would be nice to hear from
