Introducing the Aero Luffspar range, an entirely new type of spirally bound Carbon Fibre luff spar

Specifically designed to provide the convenience of furling/reefing the genoa, without compromising its efficiency.

Aero Luffspars congratulate Jeremy Warren and Phil Kirk for their record breaking circumnavigation of the UK.

Hafren's Record Attempt - Wayfarer Round Britain

'The Aerospar worked faultlessly, allowing us to quickly and easily adjust the genoa to suit the conditions. For Hafren, it was a must-have item' – Jeremy Warren.

Two lightweight and compact roller reefing/furling systems:

Aero Luff Spar:
A luff spar that fits onto any of the readily available furling systems –
ideally suited to those with an existing furling system.

Aero Furling Spar:
A complete furling system incorporated within the spar –
ideal for performance sailing and those with no existing system.
  • Spar can be supplied to fit any genoa luff length up to 6 metres.

  • Full Carbon spar withstands all torsional loads to gale force conditions.

  • Spar tested by designer (not by choice!) in Force 8 gale conditions.

  • Spar not permanently deformed by bending - as with an aluminium spar.

  • Provides a more rigid link than a highly flexible polypropylene type spar.

The AeroSpar was featured on both the Cornish Crabber and Swallow boat stands at the Southampton Boat Show
– both builders now supply the spar as the recommended furling/reefing option for their small cruiser range of boats.

8 Wayfarers anchored off the shore at Brancaster on a Training weekend – with 7 of the boats using the Aero Spar (4* having changed from other systems) and the eighth boat ordering the Aero Spar after seeing how efficiently it reefed the genoa in the strong wind conditions.
