FacnorFacnor 2500 Spinnaker Top-Down Furler (max. sail area 861 ft.)
 

Kit includes: Top and bottom mecanisms (swivel+drum), tack swivel adaptor and thimble .

The Facnor Top Down FX furler allows furling of asymmetric Spinnakers, Gennakers and Code Zeros from the cockpit by pulling the bottom furling line. The anti-twist rope rotates up to the top end, furling from the head of the asymmetrical spinnaker down to the foot. Unlike the Gennaker (Code Zero), the torque rope is not captive from the luff tape of Asymmetrical Spinnakers. The drum continuous furling line prevents from overriding and can be left fitted on deck or easily removed. Therefore , the furled sail is quickly ready to be used. This system can also be used as the standard FX Furling unit by lashing the proper thimbles to the head and tack of your Gennaker or Code Zero
  • Tested mechanism (derived from Fx range of Gennaker furlers).
  • Use of your existing asymmetric Spinnaker under certain conditions and modifications (strips+central rope).
  • Safe System to fit the anti-twist luff rope into the top and bottom mechanisms (exact calculation of the luff rope length).
  • Maintenance free bearings.
  • Furling line easily and quickly removed without any mechanical operation.
  • No risk for the furling line to override.
  • The sail tightly furled does not put any load in the rig.
  • Can be switched to Gennaker and Code Zero
Note: Kit does not include the anti-torque rope. Rope length will vary by boat size

Fits Boats:
38' to 45' (11.5 m to 14 m).
