There are plenty of options for headsail furling on small boats.
Between Profurl & Facnor, we cover a wide range of options for all budgets and sailing programs.
There are two categories of headsail furlers, each of them they have their advantages and disadvantages:
Furlers with extrusions
The classic headsail furlers – fitted on most cruising boats- are very reliable and strong. They provide the possibility of sailing with the sail partially furled, with a single furling line. Profurl offers the C260 model, a simple furler with a self-contained halyard for boats up to 7 meters. Facnor offers the LS/LX70 model, which accepts up to 5mm forestay on boats up to 8m. Alternatively – for a more racing look – the Flatdeck furler FD110 can be fitted on boats up to 9m with a 7mm forestay.
Sail with a reefed sail. Heavy system.
Easier to change sails. More Complex installation.
Possibility to peel sails.
Keep the luff tape on the sails
