Unit 4.5C Carbon Hydraulic
MKIII hydraulic furling allows you to reef, furl, or set sails with the touch of a button. Proven in the extreme conditions found in around-the-world sailing, carbon hydraulic jib reefing and furling systems combine the beauty of stainless with the elegant finish of carbon. Single groove foils are filament-wound with standard modulus carbon fiber that maximizes torsional strength and saves 30 to 200 pounds (13-90 kg). The lower unit features a carbon fiber torque tube and cowling. Call for availability.
The furler’s lower toggle fixes at 90-degree intervals to accept any chainplate direction. The reversible hydraulic drive uses a high-reduction, double-enveloping worm gear to prevent reefed sails from unfurling under load.
These furlers are used on cruisers and performance cruisers with headstays up to -115 rod.
