bamar furlingThe smallest furler in Bamar’s totally revamped GFS series is born, combining new technologies and experience from the previous series in production since 2003. It is called GFS8. This furler, takes advantage of the unique self-aligning ball anchor, designed for structural flush-deck installation.

Maximum is the versatility of the furler, which allows an electric motor body, or a hydraulic motor, or a rope-holding drum in the new manual version to be installed indiscriminately below the same off-deck structural element.

The evolution of technology in the sailing industry is increasingly toward servo mechanisms of the highest quality, performance, and reliability. All this combined with a reduction in size and weight. Bamar presents this new furler that provides performance such as high sail furling speed and torque in electric or hydraulic motorized versions, synchronism between multiple movements, ease of installation, very low maintenance, versatility, reduced weight and size, improving comfort and safety on board.

The flange body and all exposed components on the deck are made of polished 316 stainless steel. While the body underneath is made of thick anodized aluminum alloy pigmented black. Motorized versions allow the use of a drill or electric crank to furl/unfurl the sail in case of failure.

The power supply of the electric version is managed by Boxtron, a hardware capable of keeping all the parameters of electric operation under control.

GFS 8 is suitable for stays, both in spiroidal rope max Ø14 mm, and in ROD max #40
