Colligo Marine Spinnaker Furler Systems

by Colligo Marine 31 Jul 2021 22:20 PDT

Made for furling curved luff asymmetrical spinnaker or gennaker sails. Top Down style spinnaker furlers use a torsionally stiff "Torque Rope" to transmit torque up from the lower drive end of the furler to the head of the sail allowing the sail to be furled from the top down.

The tack of the sail is allowed to spin independently of the torque rope ensuring that the sail will not get twisted on the torque rope.

For sail deployment just pull on one of the sheets and the sail will unfurl and fill with wind. Spinnaker furlers are only as good as the torque rope they use. Colligo Marine has the best bulk torque rope on the market.

Spin Furler usage guide

Spinnaker Furler sizing:

  • For sails to 700 Sq ft use the CF1.5
  • For sails to 1,000 Sq ft use the CN3S
  • For sails to 2,000 Sq ft use the CN5S

Sizing also depends on sail type and weight, predicted usage and boat geometry.

Furler purchases include the drive end and lightweight upper swivel. Spinnaker tack attaches to the leash on the drive end and the head of the sail attaches to the to the upper line terminator in the torque line. Torque line is sold separately and needs to be made to the correct length.

All Colligo Furlers use a combination of ceramic bearings and titanium shafts for maximum reliability.
