Easy handling of certain yacht components is great for smooth sailing.
Most of the yachts we deliver now feature an electrical roller furling installation. Because it is easy and safe.Meanwhile, demand for such an installation comes up for our pre-owned yachts, too. And here we explain how you can exchange your existing installation for an electrical one.
How does the exchange work?
By their design, modern Furlex roller furling systems allow the swivel in front of the line to be easily exchanged with an electrically powered variant. And since we are a shipyard we know exactly how to replace your existing roller furling system with an electrical one.
Can this be done with my Furlex type?

Many people think that spring is the best time to buy a pre-owned yacht. “That way, I’ll be able to sail her directly afterwards”, is the idea. But our experience says this: Autumn and winter are a far better time for buying a yacht and here is why:
In autumn, a much bigger variety of yachts is for sale.
You also still got the whole winter period ahead for adapting your dream yacht to your wishes. Come spring, she’ll be ready for sailing.
That also means more safety – and much more relaxed preparations.
You’ll have lots of time to really find the perfect yacht, too.
Good to know: Any pre-owned yacht you buy from us now will keep her berth free of charge throughout the rest of the winter, at our Flevo Marina sales harbour.
