The Harken Gennaker Furling System was developed for large single-handed boats and huge oceangoing multihulls. The 1900 Gennaker furler is ideal for drifters and reachers on multihulls up to 45 ft. (14 m). Smaller boats use the 3049 Furling System.
The drum unit features a fairlead, while the upper swivel is designed for direct halyard attachment. Custom designs are available for larger boats. Systems are sized to handle loads of 2:1 halyards and the multiple stacked races of Torlon ball bearings ensure smooth rotation under load. Fairleads allow the furling line to lead aft to the cockpit.
System Includes furling drum with fairlead and upper swivel. There are several Harken accessories available that offer additional options for proper installation, ease of use and maintaining proper functioning of all hardware involved in your furling system.
