Other Products in Furlers: Schaefer


 A proven design with thousands of miles of blue-water cruising - including the grueling Around Alone Race.

Whether you're upgrading your present boat or outfitting a new one, you'll have confidence knowing you've chosen the best jib furling/reefing system available. A furler with the trusted Schaefer name.

Bearing Design: Open For Life
Schaefer's Torlon™ bearings cannot corrode and ride in open, easily accessible races that don't require lubrication. These proven, high compression strength bearings provide low friction, and need only periodic flushing with water.

Headstay Adjustment: No Compromises
Schaefer Systems utilize your existing headstay and turnbuckle for reduced cost, full turnbuckle adjustability, and optimum performance.

Our heavy-duty base toggle/link articulates to absorb side loads that might otherwise cause turnbuckle fatigue. Your turnbuckle is attached to the base toggle/link and is housed by the system, easily accessible.

Drum Design: Powerful, Open, Metal
Our powerful, large diameter drum provides you with the mechanical advantage you need for high sailing loads. Standard split drum plates allow for easy conversion to a full length headsail.*

Attractive, stainless cage is open to give easy access to the furling line.

Schaefer's CNC machined metal construction resists ultraviolet rays and abuse from anchor chains and poles mounted near the stemhead fitting.
