sailboat boom / furling / carbon
The New Zealand-built 192-foot performance sloop Kokomo III was the first superyacht to benefit from Southern’s new generation SouthernFurl furling boom system. The design has since been modified to be suitable in function and price for yachts as small as 35 feet.
The key features of the new system are:
An open-front shell design
A new drive system mounted at the back of the boom, enabling easy connection of the hydraulic outhaul system
A new attachment for the mandrel to mast
On larger yachts, a new batten slide system.
