Facnor adapted the racing structural furler developed for ocean Open 60’ to 24 to 33 ft sailing boats. These furlers are in/out systems for Solent or small Genoa. The STG  3T & 4T give the possibility of hoisting quickly a sail fitted with hanks as on any conventional forestay. This system is especially suitable for racing yachts

F A C N O R   A D V A N TA G E S :

  • Saving in weight (up to 5 times lighter than a conventional furling system)
  • Kit made of a continuous line drum and a top swivel both fitted with a toggle, and a halyard swivel
  • Product conception based on a system tested in ocean races, waterproof and therefore maintenance free
  • Constant and great furling power thanks to the continuous line drum
  • Halyard swivel that allows use of the existing halyard
  • Makes easy unstepping operations compared to a classic reefing system
  • Maximum luff thanks to the low profile drum: the Genoa outhaul reaches the deck
  • Simple installation, sail fitted on snap shackles

Unlike the headsail furling and reefing system, but like the Gennaker furler, the structural wire furler does not allow reefing of the sail. It is an in/out system. The sail set on structural wire furler can be fitted with hanks or zip luff. The furling principle is simple: the continuous line drum transfers the rotation to the tack of the sail that furls round the forestay. After a few turns, the rotation is quickly transferred to the top of the sail. With the halyard swivel the sail can be quickly hoisted and lowered the sail as requested.
