New Gyb'Easy Boom Break
New Three Tension Setting Design Reduces Boom Speed

Gyb'easy Boom Break

Wichard has introduced an innovative three-setting boom break system designed to slow boom movement during the potentially dangerous gybe maneuver. The new Gyb’Easy Boom Break is supplied complete with a special Gyb’Flex line, making this the easiest, most compact boom break system available.

Hot-forged from Series 6 aluminum, the new Gyb’Easy is extremely strong and lightweight. The unique 3 setting design can be quickly adjusted depending on wind and sea conditions by simply weaving the 40' Gyb’Flex line through one, two or three available resistance settings. Each additional weave increases resistance, slowing potential boom speed. Easy to rig, the Gyb’Easy is secured to the deck using common deck hardware.

According to Vernon Hultzer, National Sales and Marketing Manager for Wichard USA, “We feel this product will be a great addition to our already successful line of safety products. Our in-house R&D team developed this revolutionary product by drawing on technology from Wichard’s Simond division, which is an ice climbing and mountaineering hardware brand focused on reliability and safety. Manufactured from hot-forged aluminum, the Gyb’Easy has no moving parts and requires no maintenance or inspection.” Available now at most marine chandlers, the Wichard Gyb’Easy boom break has a suggested retail price of $289.90.

The French based Wichard Company was founded in 1919. A world leader in marine equipment, Wichard Group brands include Wichard marine hardware, Profurl furling systems and Simond mountaineering and climbing equipment.
