Harken MKIV Genoa Furling Systems are strong, lightweight and aerodynamic,
with the performance and features Harken® is known for. Longevity, ease
of use, and simplicity of installation are crucial components of the design.
These free-rolling furlers make all the difference in headsail control by
allowing racers and cruisers to quickly furl and reef from the safety of
the cockpit, while maintaining great sail shape and optimal speed.
Harken’s MKIV Underdeck Furling is the perfect solution
for performance racers and cruisers who want an aerodynamic system with
minimal amount of equipment above deck. The drum is located beneath
the deck, lowering the tack height for maximized sail area.
Easy Reefing and Furling: Multiple rows of large-diameter Torlon® ball
bearings used in high-load areas to minimize friction for easy reefing and
furling; require no lubrication or isolating seals.
More Furling Power: Large inner spool diameter increases mechanical advantage
for powerful reefing and furling. Smaller outside dimension allows unit
to fit narrow bows or below deck. Unit rotates around rod or wire headstay
so furling bearings do not carry the headstay load for easy furling.
Long-Lasting Protective Finish: Aluminum line guard, torque tube, and swivels
are deepsaturation hardcoat-anodized for no-fade UV-stabilization, strength,
and durability. The hardcoat-anodized line guard is urethane-coated for
additional corrosion protection. Specially formulated low-stretch black
line is abrasionand UV-resistant; standard on units 0, 1, and 2.
