With a furling headsail system, you can stay in the safety of the cockpit, and reef the complete sail away in seconds. Being able to furl the foresail away single handed ensures your security on board. Our product line offers solutions for headsails and spinnakers.
We work mainly with Furlex systems with its attractive combination of aluminium, composite and stainless steel. The smooth lines make Furlex very durable, smooth on the sail, and effortless for the sailor.
Electric and Hydraulic
Your existing manual system can be upgraded to electric or hydraulic operation. If your yacht is equipped with a hydraulic power pack, the sleek hydraulic furling unit can be installed. The electric version can be added to any manual system. The self locking worm gear provides a mechanical lock which prevents the furling unit from rotating. The control buttons are mounted in the cockpit.
For additional luff length on your headsail and to offer better sail trim, the TD is the system to choose. Available both manually and electric, most yachts can be adapted to fit this system.
CODE ZERO SYSTEMS
The CX furling unit is designed to furl a powerful Code Zero. Simply hoist the furled sail, pull on the sheet, and watch the boat change gear. Code Zero sails are designed for sailing angles from 40 to 90 degrees. The CX makes these sails extremely manageable. To reduce the power, ease the sheet, pull on the endless furling line, until the sail is completely furled, and then fold the sail back into its sail bag, ready for the next adventure.
The GX furling unit is designed for downwind assimetrics/gennakers, which are used in wind angles between 70 to 120 degrees. It has transformed the handling of these sails for light handed crew. With the sail already furled, just hoist on the halyard, pull on the sheet and the overdrive comes into action. An additional bow sprit keeps the sail clear of the forestay and exposed to the wind. To finish, simply ease the sheet, pull on the endless line, and drop the furled sail back into the bag.
SERVICING FURLING UNITS
Furling units are an integral part of your rig, and should be serviced at least once a year, dismantling the complete system to access the inner bearing races. At least every five years the units should be removed for a comprehensive service.
