Designed by experienced sailors
The Sveggen furling gear has been developed by the French engineer David Bonnafois from Lyon, who also is a very experienced yachtsman. As the owner of a specialised company that makes highly complex parts for watches, helicopters and the aerospace industry and as an active sailor, he decided to design and make a furling gear for his own boat. After four prototypes, this model is the result of intensive practical testing on the water, helped by input also from his fellow sailors. In this manner, he has over time succeeded in achieving his goal: To make a furler that is easy and reliable to use, even in adverse conditions. It is both robust and reliable.
The Sveggen furling gear is the ideal companion for our Code C sail, making the handling of this exciting and versatile cruising sail extremely simple and trouble-free even for shorthanded crews.
