Facnor, the world leader in continuous line Gennaker furlers, introduces a unique and modern design for headsail furling systems. This range of new products was developed from our experience with designing continuous line furlers for ocean racing teams. Now sailors can enjoy the benefits of our innovative continuous line system on any boat.


Our experience in designing continuous line furlers:

Compared to a conventional drum, the advantages of a continuous line system are numerous: a bigger luff available, greater furling power due to a larger diameter drum, no risk of overriding. A technology directly developed in racing Gennaker furlers or "structural system" on Open 60's. Furthermore, this model can be fitted on existing Facnor reefing system (R range).



  • Maximised luff thanks to low profile drum : the Genoa outhaul follows the deck
  • Furling power increased
  • A constant pull supplied by the furling line
  • Easy handlings
  • Internal housing for turnbuckle
  • Waterproof bearings
  • Installation as simple as a classic Facnor furling system
  • Eliminates risk of furling line overriding
  • Adaptation possible on former "S" or "R" sections
  • Rotating tack fitting with torlon® balls to take up sail fullness
  • Large range : RC100, RC180, RC220, RC300
