With the Furlerboom in-boom main sail furling system you can get a real mainsail: a fully battened mainsail with roach. Even “fat head” or gaff batten is possible to furl and reef, so there are no compromise in stability and performance. We have the size of Furlerboom to meet the exact demands for your yacht. Manually operated by an endless line to a powered winch at the cockpit or electrically driven by push-button.Read more
The Furlerboom main halyard control block add a friction to easing the main halyard when furling. The Furlerboom main halyard control block help to keep the luff tight when furling. This is one of the 3 essentials* to control correct reefing and furling. It is normally installed at the deck collar but with 1:2 purchase halyards it has also been mounted at the headboard car. When hoisting the main, the sheave of the control block runs free. When furling the control block sheave runs backwards and being able to add brake force it can then take up a part** of the main sail weight.
*See the 3 essentials in the manual.
**We recommend the maximum brake force added to be able to carry the main sail ½ furled in. the remaining should be controlled easing by hand, on larger yachts with the main halyard round a winch.
