Unlike In-Mast furling systems, In-Boom reefing allows full control over reefing whilst maintaining a lower centre of gravity. Products such as the Leisure furl In-Boom Furling System enable a perfect sail shape to be achieved with conventional roach and fully battened sails.
Fitting an In-Boom Reefing system enables reliability and convenience, not to mention the benefit of mainsail storage whilst maintaining efficiency in sail shape. Leisure furl systems can be powered by electrics or hydraulics.
The Leisure furl boom is world renowned for its reliability, quality and ease of use. The design is simple but effective, providing a no compromise solution for in-boom reefing. The booms are manufactured using high strength rolled aluminium plates (5083 H111) which produce a very elegant shape together with the required structural stiffness for heavy weather use.
Special features such as the integral sail cover, open boom front to prevent chafe of the luff tape and the use of conventional style fittings for vang, mainsheet and preventer eyes, ensure reliability and full integration with existing boom hardware and blocks.
