Designed for small crews

Designed for small crews

The Parasailor was developed especially for small crews. It is very easy to handle and very well tempered. After all, what you want is a relaxed and drama-free atmosphere on board. Even more so when it's only your spouse and you.

Well tempered companion

The Parasailor is a very well tempered companion on your downwind courses. Unlike regular spinnakers, the Parasailor stands very stable and has no inclination to roll or collapse.

No pole required

There are several ways of rigging the Parasailor. While it is perfectly fine to use the spinnaker pole just like with a regular spinnaker, it is definitely not necessary to do that. The spreading moment of the wing suffices to conveniently use the Parasailor without a pole.

Less load on the bow

The lift created by the Parasailor's wing significantly reduces the load on the bow, making it much easier to steer and control your boat.

"I am happy with my investment"

"Crossing from Sardenia to Menorca , I used my new Parasailor 60 % of the trip. I was really surprised how easy it was to adjust it even during the night. So far I am happy with my investment and I believe Parasailor will give me the performance I am looking for at the Atlantic and Pacific crossings."
