furling masts - 1

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 Seldén 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 wea­ her conditions, t 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.

A fine combination of performance and convenience.

The Seldén load d ­ istributor prevents… … point loading! Asymmetric sail slot wide enough for vertical battens. Extra long guide flange. Optional sail guide for sails with horisontal battens. 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 ­ ystem. s 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...

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 com­ artment. p
