Carbon fiber furling booms designed and manufactured by Offshore Spars will now be offered for yachts 50’ and up. We have combined the very popular detailing of our Park Avenue boom with new furling motor technology to produce the most technically advanced furling boom on the market.
The furling boom shape is the same tapered “V” shape as our extremely popular Park Avenue booms.
The furling mandrel uses a simple lug and swivel connection to the mast avoiding penetrations to the mast wall for mandrel support.
The furling motor is contained in the inboard end of the carbon fiber furling mandrel. The motor is offered in either electric or hydraulic power. The inboard boom end is open to allow the mainsail luff to roll evenly, unencumbered by an inboard bulkhead.
A large internal cavity below the furling floor allows for internal mainsheet, preventer, cockpit lights or hydraulic mainsheet cylinder.
The outboard end features a spherical roller bearing that will support the mandrel in four axis.
