FlatDeck is a powerful furling system fitted with a webbing. This great Facnor innovation offers safe and easy headsail furling: no reefing line overriding and an important torque. Overall, with the FD low profile drum, you benefit from a maximum luff !
The widely installed FX+ and FXT range enables Gennaker and Code 0 sails to be hoisted easily, quickly and safely. Removable furling line and quick fastenings give an even greater ease of use. The neat design gives lightness to the high resistance mechanisms.
The FX+ furler, fitted with the Fast Thimble, allows to furl in the Asymmetric Spinnakers from the cockpit by pulling the bottom furling line. The anti-twist rope rotates up to the top end and then transmits the rotation from the head to the tack of sail. With its simple system, it is possible to use your existing asymmetric Spinnaker.
