Originally built for Volvo 60s, Harken's Code Zero furlers are used with free-flying asymmetrical headsails and staysails. This Code Zero Unit #1 is suitable for boats from 35ft to 50ft. and can tame Code Zero sails, screechers, Gennakers and staysails. The eight-faceted sheave-drive grips line aggressively to furl these huge sails with minimal line. Its large diameter makes furling smooth and easy.
This Code Zero Furling model has spring-loaded arms to hold line captive in the sheave. Arms open to remove the line for quick unfurling, or to strike the furler. A built-in stripper safely guides line out of the furler. The lower unit incorporates a quick sail disconnect by pushing a spring-loaded button. Compact hardened steel roller thrust bearings handle extremely high luff loads. Furler heights are kept to a minimum so that the luff of the sail can be at maximum length.
System Includes furling drum and upper swivel. There are several Harken accessories available that offer additional options proper installation, ease of use and maintaining proper functioning of all hardware involved in a Code Zero furling system.
