Harken Radial winches for Cruising Multihulls

Harken have reached a new level of performance with the introduction of Radial Winch line. Details you’ll like include reduced wear on the line: the gripping surfaces of Radial Winches are shaped and do not depend on friction to hold the line. Also, Harken have completely covered the winch tops so fingers and clothing don’t get caught in moving parts. Seasonal maintenance is now exceptionally easy— the top lifts out as a single unit, making reassembly quick and mistake-free.

Multiple Styles and Finishes. Radial winches are available in aluminum alloy and chrome. Choices include 1-, 2-, and 3-speed self-tailing or plain-top styles; and manual, electric or hydraulic drives. ...Read more

Facnor Asymmetrical Spinnaker Furler

No more awkward operations on the foredeck, for example to take the sail down. The Asym-FX furler has been developed through Open 60 race technology. Ready for use very quickly. Your asymmetric Spinnaker is safely and quickly pulled up, taken down and stored. Adaptation on existing asymmetric Spinnaker with only small modifications.

With the ASYM-FX you will furl your asymmetric Spinnaker as easily as your Gennaker. Handle your sail comfortably from the cockpit by just pulling the continuous furling line. This operation will make the drum and then the anti-twist luff rope rotate. The luff rope transmits the rotation to the central furling rope. This will make the luff of the asymmetric Spinnaker furl from the center. The continuous line drum prevents the furling line from overriding. The furling line can be removed from the drum without any mechanical operation.
