The halyard swivel is permanently sealed and lubricated. This Profurl exclusive design feature ensures a life time of maintenance free and smooth furling even under severe loads in extreme conditions.

The Profurl Furlers drum is manufactured from unbreakable, unscratchable, UV resistant high impact plastic. It is open for easy furling line inspection. Its slippery surface and conical flanges also minimizes any jamming. The strong stainless steel guard arms keep the furling line in the drum, should the line become slack during sail reefing.

Hardened carbon steel bearings (100C6) are non-corrodable because they are permanently housed in a grease protected by special double lip seals which ensure water tightness to a depth of more than 5 meters. This technology guarantees maintenance-free operation under extreme loads. The drum mechanism is designed in a shape which will not chafe dock lines, mooring or anchor lines or running rigging.
