ESP stands for "Elegant Simp Products and the Harken ESP Furler is designed for the
cruiser looking for an easy-to assemble
furler with an elegant design. Install a
Harken® ESP Furler and trim safely from
the cockpit when it blows; unfurl instead
of motoring when it’s light, for a great day
To make assembly easier, Harken offers
top foils in five precut lengths—no hacksaw
required. An adjustable bottom foil
fine-tunes the unit. Foils slip over most
existing headstays without cutting the
headstay, reducing set-up time even more.
Harken ESP Furlers are available with multiple leg kits. Use the table below to determine the correct ESP Furler leg kit for your boat.
EASY ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION:
Top foil offered in 5 sizes to fit headstay length requirements of
the boat. Bottom foil
adjusts to fine-tune your final length—no hacksaw required.
Bottom foil adjusts to
fine-tune length. Shackle at the tack and head attach the sail to
the furler, with sail
shape controlled by halyard tension. Marine eye and headstay wire
the foil so there is no need to cut the wire during installation.
STANDS UP TO ELEMENTS:
Spool is made from Hard Lube-anodized aluminum. Cover, flange, and
molded from glass reinforced polymers for high strength. Foils are
for durability. The stainless steel sail feeder is strong and durable.
LONG OR SHORT LEG KITS TO ADJUST DRUM HEIGHT:
Choose the long leg extension kit when using a turnbuckle with swage,
or Sta-Lok® terminals. Long legs raise the drum to clear the
anchor, reduce sail chafe,
and increase visibility. Removable clamp screws allow legs to pivot
out of the way
for easy access to the turnbuckle.
Choose the short leg extension kit when the furler attaches directly
to a marine eye
at the bottom of the stay. Short legs allow the sail to be closer
to the deck.
ESP Furler or Mark IV Furler?
Harken ESP Furlers have a single luff groove and do not have a removable drum. ESP Furlers are ofter used by cruisers and club racers while mark IV furlers are often used by racers who want to have the ability to make mid-race sail changes.
An optional halyard deflector, installed above the foil, prevents
the jib halyard and
other halyards (such as a spinnaker or additional jib halyards) from
the foil when furling.
Strong, lightweight stanchion-mounted blocks are offered to lead
line aft for safe
furling from the cockpit.
Line not included. Other optional parts include extra foil sections for boats with longer headsail luffs, connectors for those foils and furling lines.
