MKIV Electric Unit 3E
Designed for large cruising boats, electric furling is a headsail system that helps you get the most out of your boat, while letting you comfortably reef, furl, and set sails from the cockpit with the push of a button.
The torque tube, motor, and gear housing are deep-saturation hardcoat-anodized, UV-stabilized aluminum. The sculpted gear box and streamlined motor housing is sealed with high-quality lip seals. The motor mounts vertically into pulpits, clearing anchor tackle and providing low windage.
The motor is a permanent magnet design and features high torque and low power consumption. Inside, the hardened steel gears are permanently lubricated. The reversible drive uses a high-reduction worm gear set to prevent reefed sails from unfurling under load.
C-shaped connectors slip over the headstay without feeding wire through the connector. The lower unit fits over the existing turnbuckle allowing easy length adjustment. Easy upgrade from a MKIV Unit 3 manual unit.
