Structural furlers have been installed on racing sailboat for a long time. These structural furlers support mast loads and can entirely furl in and out headsails (such as Solent, Staysail, Genoa). This high performance system is also supplied on ocean cruising yachts for Staysails. The structural furler - unlike the Gennaker furler - supports both mast and sail loads. The Facnor STK systems are fitted with anti-twist fiber forestay from 40 footers. Widely tested on ocean races, like the external and internal halyard locking devices, reliability made their success. The different STG, STB and FLT systems can be fitted with a classic wire forestay from 24 to 30 footers.
