BOOM FURLING SYSTEMS
Boom Furling Units are becoming more and more popular on mid-size and larger cruising yachts, where they offer the opportunity to have a fully automated furling system without compromising the sail area or performance of the mainsail. This is because we can build a sail with full-length battens and the same roach profile as we would on a standard mainsail. These sails perform as well as standard mainsails and are reefed by partially rolling the sail.

GENOA FURLING SYSTEMS
Doyle's Genoa Furling System is an ideal, value priced solution for coastal cruisers. Roller furling makes handling larger genoas easier, and give sailors a wider wind range with the option of roller-reefing.
Our design team’s understanding of loads, strain and chafe allow Doyle to deliver a durable, cost-efficient sail. There are various options available, depending on requirements and budget.
CODE 0 FURLING SYSTEMS
A furling unit means that using a Code 0 is as simple as hauling on the sheet to deploy the sail, then pulling on the furling line to furl it away when finished.
IN-MAST FURLING SYSTEMS
In-mast furling units are a very popular choice for the cruising and offshore market. They offer a very convenient way to furl the sail and offer a user friendly shorthanded solution to the cruising sailor.
Traditionally the in-mast furling mainsail was viewed as an inefficient sail for windward performance but with the solution of vertical battens performance is greatly improved.
