200S Highest grade marine stainless steel feeder for improved durability and service life.

Tack swivel with “free turn” combined with the uniform profile of the forestay extrusion gives a perfectly furled sail and effective performance when reefed.

Unique line guide system controls and centers furling line and arranges it on the drum.

Furlex 200S – 500S (6 – 16 mm forestay) are available with an optional internal turnbuckle. The turnbuckle is completely built into the drum, to ensure that it does not affect either the dimensions of the forestay extrusion or the height of the drum above deck.
