Some yes, others not. It is meaningful that from the boats that I have posted the boats designed to voyage in more remote places and that therefore require a larger autonomy and reliability don't have boom furling and even if they have some electric winches (that today are highly reliable) those winches can be used manually.

That is the case with the Allures, Boreal or OVNI lines. It is not by accident that they are all also Aluminium boats:
