A850 Hydraulic Vang Cylinder

Navtec’s Series 850 Vang features an extra-large piston rod to resist buckling with no tackle to clutter the deck layout. It also provides boom lift in light airs and acts as a topping lift when the sail is flaked.  The A850 can be integrated with an A440 Push Button Quick Release Valve, proving the ability to instantaneously dump the vang when required.

Position-Indicating Vang Electrical

Originally developed for super yachts, this unique feature is now available on all Navtec vangs down to -22. The position indicating unit is essential for achieving the correct angle for the new furling booms that have become common on boats from 50 feet and up. The Position Indicating Vang can be interfaced with most marine electronics.

A850 Hydraulic Super Yacht Vang (Alloy)

The Navtec Alloy Hydraulic Superyacht Vang features a coaxial feed through the rod so both the push and pull hydraulic connections are located on the oil jaw. In addition, the A850 Vang can be equipped with the position indication function, to ensure that the correct angle for the furling boom is achieved.
The Navtec Carbon Wrap Cylinder complements the style aesthetic of the A950 Carbon Fiber Superyacht Vang. A thin carbon veneer tube is applied to an A250 Cylinder resulting in the same carbon finish as the larger superyacht vang. For the specification of the A250 Cylinder, including the pull force, pin size, and rod size.
