Marin EMS Fatfurl Main - Single Outside Taffeta, Technora

The FatFurl only available at Elvstrøm is specially designed with optimum shape and maximum sail area for all modern High-Performance Cruisers. The Fatfurl is larger than conventional horizontally battened mainsails. The continuous vertical battens with carbon top provide maximum support for the leech, whether the sail is fully deployed or reefed. The full battens are also to be used as reefing points, stretching the reefed luff and making the sail flat and efficient. The short intermediate battens have the same function. The EPEX layout ensures an optimum fiber distribution and a strong and stable sail. We will together with you find the best solution regarding type of fibers and surface. Optional integrated batten pockets are symmetric and ensures optimally airflow over the sail.

Materials

Single outside taffeta is a combination of taffeta on one side and film on the other. More flexible and softer than the double outside combination. Taffeta is available in light grey and white. The Technora fiber is a high-performance fiber with high tenacity and low elongation, improving the shape.

 

Performance - Durability - Price

Performance, durability and price indicators are illustrated for each material combination on a scale from 1-10, 10 being the highest. Use the performance, durability and price parameters as indicators only, and to compare various material to one another.

    Conventional Main - short battens

    Sail Type
    The conventional mainsail with short battens still has full top batten. Having shorter battens in the lower parts of the sail makes the trimming and depowering easier. Short battens also make the sail weigh less and is normally the preferred choice for racing. Short battens also mean less chafe against the rig and spreaders when sailing downwind, so it should be considered if you plan to cross the oceans and sail downwind for long distances.

    The sail can be delivered with slides or luff rope, reefs and all other necessary options, for instance: trim stripes, sail numbers, cunningham, over-head leech line, loose foot and sail bag.

    Layout
    Available in cross-cut, trioptimal and EPEX.

    When to use
    The conventional mainsail with short battens can be used in all weather conditions – upwind and downwind. For heavy wind conditions the sail area can be reduced by reefing.
  • Conventional Main - full battens

    Conventional Main - full battens

    Sail Type
    The horizontal full battens in the conventional mainsail help keep the shape of the sail, and when lowering the sail, it practically packs itself into the lazy jack or zippack. As the sail is easy to use and stable, it is a favorite sail for many cruisers.

    The sail can be delivered with slides or luff rope, reefs and all other necessary options, for instance: trim stripes, sail numbers, cunningham, over-head leech line, loose foot and sail bag.

  • In-Mast Furling Main - no battens

    In-Mast Furling Main - no battens

    Sail Type
    This is the simplest in mast furling mainsail. Cost effective and solid are the most important features. It is possible to furl into all furling masts, also the ones with a narrow opening.

    Normal options to include are clew block, clew UV cover, reefing marks and sail bag. Sail number, trim stripes and other options are also available.

    Layout
    Available in cross-cut, trioptimal and EPEX.

    When to use
    The in-mast furling mainsail with no battens can be used in all weather conditions – upwind and downwind. For heavy wind conditions the sail area can be reduced by furling in the sail partly.
  • In-Mast Furling Main - short battens

    In-Mast Furling Main - short battens

    Sail Type
    This in-mast furling mainsail with short battens can be built with a straight leech which gives a larger and more efficient sail than without the battens.

    Normally this sail will also fit into all masts, also the ones with narrow opening, as the battens are flat. It is a cost effective and solid sail. Normal options to include are clew block, clew UV cover, reefing marks and sail bag. Sail number, trim stripes and other options are also available.

  • EMS Main

    EMS Main

    Sail Type
    The EMS is an in-mast furling mainsail with full continuous vertical battens. The continuous vertical battens with carbon top provide support for the leech, whether the sail is fully deployed or reefed. The battens are also to be used as reefing points, stretching the reefed luff and making the sail flat and efficient.

    Sail Type
    The EMS max sail is the cruising in-mast furling mainsail that also win races. The sail area can be designed as a conventional mainsail, but with several extra features.

    The continuous vertical battens with carbon top provide optimal support for the leech, whether the sail is fully deployed or reefed. The short intermediate battens have the same function. The full battens are also to be used as reefing points, stretching the reefed luff and making the sail flat and efficient.

    Normal options to include are clew block, clew UV cover, reefing marks and sail bag. Sail number, trim stripes and other options are also available.

  • In-Boom Furling Main

    In-Boom Furling Main

    Sail Type
    The in-boom furling mainsail is custom made for all furling boom types. The horizontal full battens help keep the shape and ensure that the furling into the boom runs without problems. The lowest battens are also working as reefing point as they stretch out the reefed down mainsail.

    Normal options to include are top UV cover, reefing marks, sail bag, sail number, trim stripes, and other options are also available.

    Layout
    Available in trioptimal and EPEX

    When to use
    The in-boom furling mainsail can be used in all weather conditions – upwind and downwind. For heavy wind conditions the sail area can be reduced by furling the sail partly in to the boom.
  • FatHead Main

    FatHead Main

    Sail Type
    A fathead mainsail is designed with a square head, making the tuning easier. When the wind increases, the top of the sail will twist, and the result is a flatter sail. In light wind the extra area gives the boat more power.

    The square head mainsail is with full battens, which in addition to making the sail stable when sailing also makes the sail pack itself when lowering it in to your zippack.

    Normal options to include are reefs prepared for single line or hook, slides, loose foot, sail number, trim stripes, cunningham, smart solutions for easy control of the fat head while hoisting and packing, but other options are also available.

    Layout
    Available in crosscut, trioptimal and EPEX.

    When to use
    The fathead mainsail can be used in all weather conditions – upwind and downwind. For heavy wind conditions the sail can be reefed.
