Let your rig do the hard work Simple You hoist the sail just once a season, so a small crew can manage a much larger boat. Easy A Selden furling mast makes it easy to unroll and set your mainsail. Rolling it in is just as quick and easy. As your sail is neatly stowed out of the way the instant it is rolled in, you have a clear view when manoeuvring under power. Safe You can set your sail to suit the weather conditions, from the safety of the cockpit. Efficient By furling the sail vertically into the mast, you don’t have to furl very much to get a substantial decrease of the sail area.

to operate • Easy an outhaul line for rolling out the sail, and an There is endless line for rolling it in. It’s as simple as it sounds. Or if you wish, you can operate the sail at the mast using a winch handle. The geared reefing winch mechanism runs on ball bearings, so it takes little effort to roll in the sail. Greasing holes in the mast facilitate maintenance. Two oval holes on the port side of the mast allow for easy access to the tack attachment, sail feed, tensioning screw and halyard swivel. Just remove the composite covers and the rest speaks for itself. You can inspect the...

Seldén’s unique load distributor The furling mechanism rotates easily even under high load. This is largely due to the unique bearing system in the halyard swivel, which was originally developed for the Furlex jib furling system. The cleverly designed load distributor has three fulcrums, distributing the load over the entire bearing race and all the bearings, rather than over small areas of the race. The Seldén load distributor prevents…

Low friction The asymmetric design and large radius edges of the slot reduce sail friction, making it much easier to roll the sail in and out. The sail groove on the luff extrusion is located asymmetrically to help the sail furl easily around the extrusion. In addition, the rotating luff extrusion is tensioned and fitted with ball bearings top and bottom. This reduces friction between the sail and the inside of the sail compartment.
