This is a very high quality Jordan Series Drogue. Top of line materials and workmanship. Bought this a year ago and now that we are getting closer to leaving for the Caribbean we have decided it does not meet our current cruising needs for the next 5+ years. So its for sale. This was purchased used, date of manufacture unknown, but condition is good.
This drogue has 100 cones: the number of cones suggests its capable of 10,000 to 15,000 pounds displacement. The line diameter suggests that it is for a vessel up to 50,000 lbs displacement- this is a seriously over built drogue! This also means if you added another section of cones it could easily be made to handle any size vessel you may have.
Having one section of cones made is very inexpensive compared to an entire drogue. Ace Sailmakers specializes in drogue making. Sailrite has kits for DIY.
