Furlex Electric is available as a complete kit or as an upgrade kit for an existing Furlex 200S, 300S, 204S and 304S series. The push-button function of a Furlex Electric makes pulling on the furling line a thing of the past.
Electric is designed around a highly efficient 42V electric motor. A DC/DC converter (PSU, Power Supply Unit) is included and converts the boat’s 12V or 24V to 42V which allows for thin cables to the motor unit, easy installation and a compact unit design.
Power is transmitted to a self-locking worm gear to rotate the luff extrusion at a max torque of 60Nm (204E) and 90Nm (304E). These high torque levels mean that you can always rely on being able to furl your foresail – even when the wind and sea are doing their worst.
