Karver - Pure Performance Deck & Mast Gear

One Step Ahead

 

 Any Port Marine are proud to be the Australian distributor for Karver Systems.

Karver was created in 2004 after identifying a gap in the sailing market: the arrival of dyneema textile links to replace stainless steel links (shackles) and an increasing disparity between the advanced design of sailboats and deck fittings, which remained very traditional in appearance. 

All new products have technological innovations (about fifteen patents), a bold step forward in the state of the art design. Product conception is based on the fundamental principle of  simple and efficient technology supported by a sleek design. 

Developing solutions with racing teams (America's Cup, Hydroptère, Vendée Globe), has led to a flow-on effect with a range of products that can provide performance enhancing solutions for all types of Sailboats.  

Products used and approved by racing teams appeal to the cruising market as these products are technically easy to use, reliable, stronger and inherently better performing. 

An example of this is the Karver range of furlers which have, for many years, been a reference for quality and performance. They possess many advanced technical features that are very popular with racers and cruisers alike; weight, dimensions, low friction, load capacity, etc, as well as the automatic locking system of the cog-wheel, all of which appeals to sailors looking for simplicity, reliability and security.

Karver: The Locking Device Specialists

Halyard locks, reef locks, Furling halyard locks, Karver halyard locks, KHL halyard lock

 

The Karver range of locking devices ensure you get the best out of your sails. 

Installing a Karver lock makes it possible to avoid a halyard stretch thus releasing the full power of the sails.

They also save weight and cost as the diameter of the halyard can be reduced as it no longer carries the load of the sail when sailing. The installation of a halyard lock also reduces compression in the mast as the halyard is no longer strained.                                                  

It would be a mistake to think that these advantages are only for the racing scene. A gain in weight aloft results in better boat stability by decreasing the pitching and rolling in heavy weather conditions in all types of boats. 

We can supply locks for Halyards, Mainsails and reefs.
