Furling systems for hank-on sails

Furling hank-on sails

Any discerning sailor knows the importance of a perfectly rigged sail. This means that they prefer to use a smaller foresail instead of reefing their sails. If this rings true with you, then why not check out our tried-and-trusted furling system for hank-on sails?

Furling systems for perfectly fitting sails on dinghies and yachts

Discerning sailors rely on BARTELS to furl foresails and genoas on agile dinghies and large yachts. Our systems furl traditional hank-on sails onto a wire forestay, enabling you to achieve perfectly trimmed sails.

Furling hank-on sails: simple and safe

The benefits are obvious. The foresail can be furled in and out safely from the comfort of the cockpit. Changing sails is simple and safe thanks to the firm hold of the hanks. 
Retrofitting is easy on boats with no existing furling equipment. The existing forestay can usually be used, whereby the length of the sail simply needs adjusting in most cases. Owners of classical yachts particularly appreciate the fact that the traditional image of the yacht can be maintained, without having to forgo the convenience of furling sails.

Furling staysails / hank-on sails with a forestay up to 20 m

We are the only experts in this field. In other words, this is what sets up apart from the competition. We offer safe and reliable systems that can furl staysails on forestays up to 20 metres long. For forestays that are longer than 8 m, we work with a cupped  halyard swivel  carriage that furls the head of the sail at the same time as it furls the tack and prevents the head of the sail from blowing out – even in strong winds.

With BARTELS, you can take perfectly fitting sails for granted

Our furling systems for hank-on sails are perfectly adapted to forestays between 5 and 25 metres in length, which enables a furling foresail or genoa to be fitted on both dinghies and large yachts. We use 4–12mm forestay cable for our systems. You can also use our systems on jib stays and cutter stays. And BARTELS wouldn't be BARTELS if we didn't sell these specially adapted products. With BARTELS, you can take perfectly fitting sails for granted.
