NEX 2.5: Flying sail furlers

General description

Discover NEX: the new generation of flying sail furlers, developed through Profurl's know-how and R&D.
NEX has been developed to improve performance of your yacht and ensure safe, optimum deployment of your flying sails. NEX is made for every sailor, professional or amateur.

Lighter, more compact, more effective, ergonomic and easier to use, NEX furlers really make a difference!

  • Performance: optimisation of component sizes and weights, optimal spool diameter for improved ease of handling.
