gennaker with furler

Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum, so I do not know if this question is pertinent. My Lagoon 400 is currently on the hard in Raiatea and I am looking for a second-hand gennaker with a furler to sail her to Australia next year in July. Can anyone help?

Re: gennaker with furler

new basic gennaker with gear costs in AU around 4k.

Alternative is bamboo whisker pole for jib, few $ solution. L400 is ideally setup for this. I managed to outrun 46 ft true racing mono with it at around 100 deg app. It works well to 120 app and also can be used wing on wing.

See my proof of concept attempt that I used to construct proper one. Real one, I use 3m pole and speeds up things from 80 app. No side effects visible after running in 30 kn true so far.
