Harken has developed two new designs that dramatically reduce drag on fore/aft and athwartships-mounted winch pedestals from 65% to 30% in 30 knots of wind—crucial to the new-age Grand Prix yachts, like AC 72's, where every ounce of speed matters.
The fore/aft mounted Wing pedestals are extremely narrow, with a sculpted foil aerodynamic shape. The athwartships-mounted Air Pedestals feature a sculpted hole in the middle, with each leg shaped like a wing—the ultimate in drag reduction.
Harken US Offices will be closed for Memorial Day. Any orders placed after 1pm on Friday May 27th will be processed Tuesday May 31st when offices reopen.
