SwiftFurl Continuous Line Furler.
High-performance dinghies, catamarans and trimarans often need a way to quickly and easily furl a jib/ gennaker. The SwiftFurl continuous line furler is the ideal solution.
This furler features five rows of torlon ball bearings to allow the unit to spin frictionlessly, even when under load.
Unlike a conventional furling drum, this continuous line furler, as the name suggests, is designed to be used with a continuous spliced line. This allows the drum to continue spinning until the jib/ gennaker is completely furled. Meaning any size sail can be used. This design also grants the drum the ability to spin in either direction.
The bottom attachment fork terminal can be fixed in 90-degree orientations, giving a wider range of attachment options to the hull of a boat.
The furling sheave is drilled with line-gripping holes. These holes grip the furling line securely as well as offer a weight reduction. Also featured is a small notch in the edge of the top sheave, this notch allows easy installation of a continuous line. So, the unit can be removed/ installed without the need to re-splice the furling line.

We recommend you pair the SwiftFirl with the A4302 high-load top furler for a complete system.
You will also need a length of rope which can be spliced for a continuous control line, we stock a small selection of suitable rope – Check it out.
