WHY CHOOSE A FLYING FURLER?
• The furler is a light and removable system that quickly launches the foresails on your sailboat. Free flying sails come as an addition to your genoa so you always fly the best sail depending on the wind and boat direction.
• A furled sail is easier to handle and can be readily stored below out of the way.
• The same furler can usually be used for several types of sails: gennakers, stormsails, staysails and more recently on asymetrical spinnakers.
• The choice to design our furler with a composite spool around the drum was made to protect fingers from getting caught when operating the unit and prevent the furling line from jamming out. Yet, it was also designed to enable the furling line to eject when not under tension

Features

QUICK USE CAPTIVE PINS - Quick fit mechanism to connect the cable to the furler swivel and drum. The furler drum is provided with a snap shackle up to and including KF5. HR shackle is standard on the swivel up to and including KF5.

CONTINUOUS LINE INSTALLATION - Easy and quick engagement of the continuous line requires no tools. Karver invented the concept where the endless line is installed within seconds and stays secured on the drum.

SUPER LOW FRICTION BEARINGS - KF range low friction bearings have been specifically designed for our furlers with high tech materials. Furling has never been easier.

DRUM LOCKING MECHANISM - The mechanism is reliable and installed with a fuse. If the maximum load is exceeded, the mechanism unlocks automatically. The drum then works like a traditional continuous line furler. The locking mechanism can be removed at anytime if the lock is not required.

UNIQUE DRUM LOCKING MECHANISM - FURLING: Pull on the endless line to furl (If you accidentally release the furling line the mechanism locks automatically). UNFURLING: To unlock the drum, just tug a little on the line in the same direction that the sail was furled which releases the lock and enables the sail to unfurl.

EXTREMELY LIGHT AND COMPACT - Our range is 35% lighter and more compact than the competition. Light weight swivels lower the impact on the mast. More compact means more sail area!

COMPOSITE SPOOL - Unlike metallic drums, the composite spool around the drum is shock absorbent and protects the drum, the sail and the deck from impact.

CUSTOM - One of our strengths is our capacity to customize our product in a short time frame at a reasonable cost to suit your specific needs.
