The design of the winch, and its rope handling characteristics are paramount for a modern yacht. We work closely with Anderson winches, offering precision, reliability and performance. A manual winch can be upgraded to electric at any time.
The self tailing arm can be rotated through 360º for optimum positioning and the jaws adjust automatically to suit the various rope sizes. The drum incorporates the distinctive power rip, ensuring controlled grip on the line at all times.
To make sailing more enjoyable, we can upgrade your manual winch to a push button electrically operated winch.
There are a wide range of electrically operated winches to suit every type of yacht, from single speed to the variable speed motor.
If your yacht is equipped with a Hydraulic Power Pack, we provide hydraulic motors to operate the winch.
Robust stainless steel winch handles, waterproof winch grease, service kits etc. are an essential part of the yacht inventory.
At least once a season the winches should be serviced. We take great care when removing the complete winch, dis-assembling and submerging in our cleaning tank. Damaged parts are replaced before re-installing with the correct amount of waterproof winch grease and oil.
