Facnor makes some of the lightest, most compact furling systems in existence, without compromising strength. Using Facnor components we offer a unique headsail furling system that is ideal for trailerable trimarans because t does not use a rigid foil extrusion. We have installed these systems on most Corsair models including Sprint and Dash 750’s, F-27s, Corsair F-28s and F-31s.
Colligo Marine designs and builds a super line of screacher, jib, and spinnaker furling systems. Ultra high quality, and customer service second to none. Call us for our recommendations and pricing.

I received my new Facnor 4T jib furler and sail from Windcraft (Don Wigston).The Facnor 4T unit is made in
France and the new jib was designed by Dave Calvert of Calvert Sails. So far we are thrilled.The continuous line furler works like a charm and rolls the sail up in seconds.No more wrestling with a big battened sail on a narrow foredeck. Due to Don’s forethought, the unit was a snap to install and mast raising was no different than before.We may have lost a fraction of a knot in top end speed,we were doing 15.5 knots in 21 knots apparent the other day with very flat water.We will also be able to use the older sails and hank them on to the forestay just not furl them. An extremely well made system and one that should be considered if you wish to convert to furling. I had a Harken Mark 1 furling system on my Dragonfly 25, but I like this system much better.

Good Morning Don,
I would like to pass on some feed back regarding the furling system you built, UNBELIEVABLE! The installation was a breeze and it worked almost too easy. We rolled and unrolled several times in 15 to 25 knot winds and every time it rolled with such little effort it was almost like there was no sail attached. This unit make the old Profurl look so antique and hard to use, by far this is the best piece of gear I have purchased for Flying Circus.
