Facnor FX Code Zero Gennaker Furler

Large Gennakers, Code Zeros, and Staysails are easy to handle using Facnor Gennaker and Code Zero furlers. Our furling system offers many benefits for set-ting or striking the sail. Facnor furlers are equipped with snap shackles for faster hook-ups for setting.

This is also convenient for quickly clearing the foredeck. Code Zeros are very large sails and can be difficult to handle because they are usually set when close reaching, causing the sail to beat against the mast and rigging until full. Hoisting the sail in the furled position offers complete control until the sail is unrolled.

A staysail can also be fitted with an FX+ furler (With this configuration we recommend that the Facnor 2-to-1 block is fitted, in order to achieve better halyard tension).

The Facnor FX+ continuous line Code Zero/Gennaker furlers are made of two main components, one flat continuous line drum and one swivel. This design eliminates the override of the furling line (no overlapping round the drum). The low profile design of the drum allows a maximum luff and the large diameter gives more furling power. It is half weight of a standard Gennaker furler. 

Facnor offers a wide range of Gennaker furlers suitable from 6.50 up to the mega-yachts. Facnor, as originator of Gennaker continuous line furlers, has the longest experience in this type of products. These have been tested during ocean races in rough weather conditions.
