Gear: Profurl Motorized Furlers

Sail News

Profurl NEXe motorized flying-sail furlers make it possible for shorthanded crews and solo sailors to handle large reaching sails, like gennakers, Code 0s and other A-sails, with minimal effort and in safety. Two versions are available, the NEXe 5.0 for boats with LOAs up to 50ft, and the NEXe 8.0 (available in both 12V and 24V configurations) which can handle sails up to nearly 2,700ft. Expressly designed for ease of use, the furler’s waterproof housing includes a handle in its leading edge to help when snapping onto a tack point, and sails can be both deployed and furled using a wireless remote. Each system’s torque/speed ratio has been optimized for use in all conditions, and even the largest sails can reportedly be rolled up in 40 seconds or less. $NA. Profurl, profurl.com
