Reckmann - RS 2000

Very reliable manual reefing system, which is distinguished by an elegant design as well as a maximum of functionality. Available in five system sizes, represents the third generation development of manual reefing systems for yachts of 30 to 90 foot in length. The one-piece aluminium extruded profiles feature higher torsion resistance combined with a weight saving of up to 25%. In designing this non-corrosive and virtually maintenance-free system, particular emphasis was placed on simple assembly.

Reckmann - RS 3000

High performance manual furling gear. The furler is equipped with a 60mm adjuster accessible from the top of the drum. Adjusting the forestay does not change the tack swivel height. The sail is tacked with Dyneema loop shackles. The foil sections are made out of carbon to reduce the top weight. The RS3000 is standard on the Swan 42 NYYC boats.

Reckmann - RC30 / RC40

For sailors, who up to now have operated a Tuff Luff racing forestay system in addition to their standard roller reefing system in order to satisfy their racing ambitions. They are designed for yachts from approx. 42 to 68 feet with forestay lengths up to about 30 metres. Entire carbon profile is so light that it weighs even less than the corresponding racing profile forestay system. The system’s entire weight for a 45-foot boat is only 9.5 kg with drum for cruising and 7.3 kg in racing mode. The RC 30 and RC 40 are hence very light reefing systems for cruising and you no longer require any other system for racing. Prior to the race, both halves of the carbon drum are removed with a few manual turns in order to tack the sail on deck.
