Furling Sails

Custom Roller Furler Sails

We create custom roller furlers and other similar sails like our custom G-Spinn sail, Genoas, mainsails, mizzens, asymmetrical spinnakers, gennakers, staysails, and jibs.

We have over 3 decades of experience creating equipment that is suited for a wide range of enthusiasts; from the off shore yachts, to the small boat and recreational sailor. Because of this, we are sure to have a solution to meet your needs, whatever they may be.

As a sail designer and builder for over 30 years, we have seen many changes in how boats are built and sailed.

I have seen furling become the norm for most sailboats and it has been a large portion of our business. From day sailors to the offshore yacht, furling is normally seen on the headsail, and now furling mainsails. Flying sails of all types are now being used with top down furlers. With our experience with sail design, we can make each sail fit the boat and the furling unit without the loss of performance and speed. Even the furling mainsail can be modified to put back the performance features lost with mast furlers. Furling for flying sails does not mean a loss of performance, rather a sail that can be modified to point, reach and perform downwind as well. All of this comes down to our computer design molds, new performance sailcloth and laminates. This is the future of sailing and we plan to stay ahead of it.

A Closer Look at Our Furlings

Here is a bit more insight on why our furlings are considered by many to be the best in the world.

The Clew

This is how we finish the clew for furling. It is done by hand and reinforce with heavy webbing and hand stitched.
