Spinnaker Staysail & Gennaker® Furling
Furled staysails are easy to hoist rolled and can be deployed or doused from
the cockpit. In marginal conditions the sail can be struck instantly without
changing the trim of the boat. Multiple stacked races of Torlon® ball bearings
ensure smooth operation under load. Systems include a lower drum with
snap shackle, fairlead and Cam-Matic® cleats, and an upper swivel with
provision for halyard attachment.
Gennaker® furling was developed for large single-handed boats and huge
oceangoing multihulls. The drum unit features a fairlead, while the upper
swivel is designed for direct halyard attachment. Custom designs are
available for larger boats.
Use screecher furling systems on multihulls up to 32 ft (9.60 m) and
easily driven sport boats. Perfect for jib reaching, screechers are set on
the bowsprit. They are often carried upwind in light to moderate conditions
and used as storm spinnakers when it’s blowing.
Systems are sized to handle loads of 2:1 halyards, and multiple stacked races
of Torlon® ball bearings ensure smooth rotation under load. Fairleads allow
the furling line to lead aft to the cockpit.
