Premiere for FatFurl XL at Open Yard / Öppet Varv

Now the next step within performance oriented in-mast furling mainsails is introduced: The FatFurl XL will be on display at Scandinavia’s largest sailboat show, the Open Yard / Öppet Varv, 23-25 August in Ellös. It will be installed on the exhibited Hallberg-Rassy 340.

The headboard is now as large as 400 mm. The raoch is even a bit larger than on a standard mainsail to fold on the boom. The backstay is of Dyneema and the boat has a back stay flicker, that provides more space for a fuller roach.

FatFurl was originally introduced by Hallberg-Rassy in 2012 on Hallberg-Rassy 412 No 001. The boat sailed, and won, her category in the famous Tjörn Runt race, no matter if the time was calculated after handicap or on actual sailed time. This was the first time a boat with in-mast furling won her category in Tjörn Runt, a very demanding race, where all the best local sailors take part.

The new FatFurl XL takes this concept yet another step further.
