Holmatro’s Furl Finder’...

New Products

It’s a new push-button auto-adjust system for hydraulic boomvangs. Press the furling button, and the vang automatically moves to the proper mainsail boom-furling angle, which eliminates the usual guesswork.

The Furl Finder is one of the latest innovations from Dutch yacht systems specialist Holmatro Marine Equipment. By simply pushing a button, a sensor monitoring the position of the boom activates a compact hydraulic system that moves the boom up or down to a predetermined angle for furling. When the boom is in the proper furling position, a green LED comes on. When sailing, the system acts as a normal push-button system to move the vang up or down as desired.
