Backed by a 6 Year Warranty!

The CDI Spinnaker Furler is so innovative that it was granted a U.S. Patent for the design. No special sail is needed because a luff rope is attached between the spool and the top swivel. The spinnaker is then wrapped around the luff rope much as a normal jib is furled around a rigid extrusion. The rope luff allows the sail to be lowered when not in use and packed into a normal sail bag left in place and covered with a protective UV sock (not included) ready to be unfurled at a moments notice.

The Spinnaker Furler is raised with the existing spinnaker halyard and the spool is mounted either on the bow rail on small sailboats or on a bow sprit or anchor roller on larger boats.

Once hoisted the spinnaker can be instantly deployed or furled from the safety of the cockpit as often as you like. A single-handing sailor or small or inexperienced crew can finally use a cruising spinnaker easily and safely. There is no need to go up onto the bow of the boat to set and furl the spinnaker.


Boat Size: Approx. 40’ length

Maximum luff rope: Approx. 50’

Ball Bearings are supplied in both the top and lower assemblies.

Furling line, 3/8” diameter, is supplied to customer spec. length

Three sheaves for the furling line are provided, pre-assembled on the furling line.

The Spinnaker Furler is designed for simple installation on a wide size-range of boats. It may be used with any Asymmetrical Spinnaker, Cruising Spinnaker or Gennaker sail without sail modifications and there is no need for the expense of making a special sail (however the spinnaker furler is not designed to work with symmetric racing spinnakers).
