Product Information

Profurl C260 Furling System Features

  • The self-contained halyard system
    On light sailboats - especially fractionally rigged - it is usually difficult to obtain a tight forestay. The C260 with its self-contained halyard helps to minimise forestay sag by reducing mast compression created by a combination of loads from the halyard and sail.
  • Ease of installation
    The C260 does not require a specialised attachment to the forestay stem head, it is simply attached to the lower swage terminal of the forestay (eye and holes plates or turnbuckle). For boats transported and stored on a trailer, the C260 can be separated in two sections reducing the risk of damage while in transit.
  • Ease of use
    The self-contained halyard passes over a sheave box fitted into the top of the extrusion and returns down to a sheave and cam cleat. Once the sail is hoisted and tensioned, the remaining length of the halyard is used as a furling line.

 Why Choose Profurl Cruising Manual Furling?

  • Large range of 10 models for boats from 5 to 26 m.
  • Round and silver anodised profile.
  • Light and robust extrusions
  • Maintenance free ball bearings
  • Several fitting possibilities: adjustment plates, long link plates, turnbuckle cylinder, below the deck fitting, stainless steel locking devices
  • Additional option: opening pre-feeder, stainless steel locking devices
  • 10-year worldwide limited warranty.
  • New: the C290, C320, C350, C420 and C520 models can hold an increased forestay diameter. For example: for an 8mm forestay, you can choose a C320 instead of a C350. If using a swageless eye, you must take both the maximum sail surface area and the drum capacity into consideration.

What kind of fitting for my Profurl furling system?

  1. Standard fitting with short link plates -  Type of locking devices: standard and threaded pin for a stay eye fitting
  • Raise the drum mechanism in order to clear the deck in case of obstacles (bow roller etc.).
  • Fitting with adjustment plates is also possible.
  1. Fitting with long link plates - Type of locking devices: standard
  • The drum can be lifted to avoid interference with the anchor and to reduce the sail chafe of the lifelines.
  • The forestay length is still adjustable.
  1. Fitting close to the deck -  Type of locking devices: stainless steel and smooth pin
  • Increase the luff length.
  1. Fitting with a turnbuckle cylinder - The rigging screw goes into the turnbuckle cylinder
  • The furler can be fitted lower to the deck.
  • It is also possible to use a combination of a turnbuckle cylinder and long link plates.
