STRUCTURAL FURLING SYSTEMS 20T and 31T structural furlers on Hugo Boss 60’ Structural furlers support the mast rigging load and the headsail: Genoa, Solent, Staysail or ORC. The structural system components are: a swivel fixed on the mast, a continuous line or standard drum fixed on the chain plate, and an anti-twist cable (PBO or Kevlar®) linking both mechanisms. This cable transfers efficiently the rotation from the drum to the swivel and is captive in the sail tape. TOP OR BOTTOM TERMINAL OPTIONS - bottom ball joint eye, - T-bones, - twin hook /anchor, - lashing soft eye, - many other terminals. 70...

In comparison with existing products fitted with foil sections, carbon sections feature rigidity as well as lightness (40% lighter than foil sections). The «teardrop» shaped sections offer better aerodynamics. The installation is simple as the elements are assembled with epoxy adhesive (no screw). This improves the torque resistance of the connected sections. Photo : Arzanà Navi 2013 Photo : Barry Pickhall / PPL /F. Konyukhov. > Unlike flying sails, this is not a in/out system and allows to reduce the sail. > Possibility to hoist different sails using the twin groove head section. > Rod or textile...

Halyard locks improve flying sail use (Staysail/Gennaker) saving weight and reducing mast compression loads. This simple and efficient device makes the halyard locking/unlocking easy and safe. The Facnor lock tremendously eases the handling of flying forestays (2-to-1 no longer required). The halyard lock can be fitted either inside or outside the mast. The mainsail locks reduce the mast compression, particularly on maxi-yachts on which working loads are tremendously high. Used on the MOD 70’, the Facnor systems reliability has undoubtedly been proved. They can be adapted on existing tracks. >...

CODE ZERO & GENNAKER FURLER FACNOR is «the» precursor in manufacturing continuous line Code zero & Gennaker furlers (supplied since 1998). Most 60’ monohulls and multihulls are now equipped with Facnor flying sail  furlers: reliable and safe. They are designed to support high loads of over 500m2 Gennakers with working loads up to 40 tons. very secure grip of the furling line. > Facnor guide concept : Thanks to the Facnor concept, the continuous line can be quickly removed without any complication. For top down furling, the sail tack must be free in rotation. Facnor has developed a single mechanism...
