Ubi Maior furler and jiber

The JB Jibers FR Furlers for headsails (code zero, gennaker,…) offered by Ubi Maior are unique patented systems that are extremely reliable and functional.

For jib furlers, the sail can be attached to the forestay using 2 systems: small straps with a T-bone, or a zipped sleeve. In both cases, the jib can be put in and taken out much more quickly than with conventional furling systems.

There’s no need to choose between the performance of a hollow forestay or the ease of a furling system, you get the benefits of both in one system.

Furlers, meanwhile, are ideally suited to dinghies and sailboats of all sizes, with the drum and head machined from a single piece of aluminium containing cylindrical roller bearings ideal for this application.

The Tides Marine mainsail track, the reference

Since it was launched over 25 years ago by Tides Marine in the USA, the Tides Marine rail has proved its worth, with thousands of units installed worldwide.

This system stands out from its competitors because it is custom-machined from a single flexible piece of PTFE, a material with very high friction properties, which is inserted into the groove of your mast from the deck without the need to raise the spar or remove the mast.

Supplied with a set of stainless steel sliders, it adapts to all types of sails (full-batten or semi-battened), bringing them closer to the mast for better performance.

Customise your gangway

Sailboat or motorboat owners, customise your gangway!

Non-slip grey with a choice of designs as standard, finished with a white paint to ensure long-term protection of the carbon fibres against UV rays, but it can also be produced in any RAL colour shade, with screen printing of a logo and the name of your boat.

You can choose the size, add teak cladding, stanchions with handrails, or opt for the Smart Lock locking system.

The castors are heavy-duty, with stainless steel rings for fixing the integrated pantry, and the lyre is made of anodised aluminium.

Efficiency of the tides marine mainsail track

Since it was introduced to the market over 25 years ago by Tides Marine in the USA, this system has proved its worth, with thousands of units installed around the world.

What sets this track apart from its competitors is that it is machined from a single piece of flexible, high-friction PTFE that fits into the groove of your mast from the deck, without the need to climb the spar.

Supplied with a set of stainless steel slides, it requires no maintenance. It adapts to all types of sails (full-batten or semi-battened) by bringing them closer to the mast for better performance and does not alter the boat’s centre of gravity with its weight of 500 g/m.

As well as being easy to install and maintain, this one-piece track eliminates any risk of the slides jamming, while considerably reducing friction and providing a level of comfort similar to that of a ball-bearing system.

Already adopted by a large number of small-crew owners looking for an efficient, robust and economical system, it will meet all your expectations.

To prepare for the next season, don’t wait any longer and ask for a quote from your usual préparateur, rigger or master sailmaker.

The MAINFURL in-boom furler on board a Hanse 545

Installation of a MAINFURL in-boom furler on board a Hanse 545: slim and V-shaped, it was delivered with a high-quality fibreglass body, but it would have been possible to deliver it in carbon instead, two very durable and lightweight materials guaranteeing very high strength.

The MAINFURL in-boom furler is at the cutting edge of technology with an innovative and intelligent in-boom furling system, here electric but a manual system would have been conceivable, both of which can be operated from the cockpit for safe and easy handling.
