Facnor Gennaker & Code Zero Furler - FX4500+
Our Part #: FACFX4500PLUS | Mfr. Part #: 43410704540
LIGHT / EASY TO FIT / AESTHETIC:
The continuous line Code zero & gennaker furlers (FX) are made of two main components, one flat continous line drum and one swivel. This model eliminates the override of the furling line (no overlapping round the drum). The low profile design of the drum allows a maximum luff and the large diameter gives more furling power. It is half weight of a standard Gennaker furler. Facnor offers a wide range of gennaker furlers suitable from 6.50 up to the mega-yachts. Facnor, as originator of Gennaker continuous line furlers, has the longest experience in this type of products. These have been tested during ocean races in rough weather conditions.
