Retro Fit In-Mast Reefing

Last month XP Rigging was working on a customer’s yacht in Christchurch with a brief from the owner to “simplify main sail handling”.

Our chosen solution was to fit Facnor’s CF80 behind mast retro fit In-Mast reefing system, which is ideal for yacht owners who have always wanted the ease and simplicity of In-Mast reefing but do not wish to replace there existing mast.

The system was fitted to a Westerly Knosort Duo 29, however it can also be fitted to all makes and models of yachts. The system requires no adjustments to the Gooseneck and can be fitted with the mast in-situ.

Facnor FlatDeck Furler

We have recently fitted two new Facnor FlatDeck FD230 furlers onto two well known cruiser / racers in Poole Harbour. The Elan 400 and Elan 410 owner's wanted to improve ease of Genoa sail handling but retain the maximum sail area for performance and chose a conversion from Tuff Luff to Facnor FlatDeck because:

  • Maximum Luff length
  • Tape driven
  • Increased torque
