CONTINUOUS LINE FURLERS
Performance & Reliability
Our Continuous Line Furlers put great performance and reliability within the
reach of cruising and racing sailors alike.
Advanced drum technology
The range matches drum diameters to load ratings providing the optimum balance between
speed and ease of furling. Drums incorporate a machined groove profile and cross-hole
geometry to grip the furling line securely. When deploying the sail the continuous furling
line self-ejects from the grip zone, remaining stationary for smoother, safer operation with
minimum rope wear. A low friction plastic perimeter strip ensures the unloaded furling line
can’t fall from the drum or become snagged.
Maintenance free bearing system
Furlers and top swivels feature a factory sealed,maintenance free bearing. Roller bearing
sets run on hardened races for smooth high load performance.
Easy continuous line installation and removal
The continuous furling line is easily fitted and removed from the furler, so it can be left on
deck when the sail and furler are stowed below.
Top-Down models for soft luff sails
Top-down furling provides a new level of simplicity, safety and speed for handling of soft
luff sails such as asymmetric spinnakers and gennakers. Cruisers can now store, deploy
and retrieve these sails as simply as they would a furling headsail from the safety and
convenience of the cockpit. Racers too can benefit from the characteristics of top-down
to allow superfast retrieval of code zeros by pre-winding the torsion rope and firing the sheet
when ready. Ronstan furlers are available with top-down adapters or in dedicated top-down
models with practical accessories such as top swivel lashing pins to provide the perfect
Secure & flexible attachment options
Furlers and top swivels have retained clevis pins and top swivels have a snag-free low profile
shackle pin head. Attachment options include quick release pins, high resistance shackles,
snap shackles, fairleads and torsion rope thimbles. The furling line guide can be adjusted to
suit either 0 or 90 attachment, as required to match the take-off alignment and deck layout.
Rotation stop accessory
A compact rotation stop can be added to compatible models of furlers to avoid inadvertent
unfurling of the sail. The rotation stop is simply installed on the underside of the furler and
can be locked out when in use, or in when the sail is furled or stowed.
