Choosing a Lewmar Genoa Lead Car


Choosing the right Lewmar Genoa Lead Car System is important to make trimming your genoa easy. Genoa and jib leads that are adjustable under load let you fine-tune your sail shape to maximize performance. The right amount of purchase makes it easy to trim the car by hand even under load. Below is a quick reference to the correct system based on boat size. If you require additional assistance please contact us. Our crew is ready to help!

Size 0
Lewmar Ocean Size 0 jib genoa and jib lead systems are appropriate for boats up to 34' (10.3m). These genoa leads have low-friction slide rod cars and a plunger stop that lets you secure the car in place on drilled track.

Size 1
Lewmar Size 1 genoa lead car systems are popular on racing and cruising yachts. They provide enough load capacity and mechanical advantage to operate on boats up to 38' (11.5m). These genoa and jib cars are available with either low-friction slide rods and plungers or with ball-bearings. Ball bearing cars are recommended for systems that will be adjusted under load.

Size 2
Lewmar Size 2 genoa lead car systems offer up to 4:1 purchase on the control line. Boats up to 48' (14.6m) can use these genoa cars. They are available with either low-friction slide rods and plungers or with ball-bearings. Ball bearing cars are recommended for systems that will be adjusted under load.

Size 3
Lewmar Size 3 genoa lead systems offer varying purchase from 2:1 (intended for winch use) to 5:1. These genoa lead cars can be used on sailboats up to and beyond 70' (21m) although special consideration should be taken to ensure proper load capacity. For help with this, or to assemble a custom traveler system for even larger yachts, please contact our technical experts for advice.
