Anchor winch selection
Talk to our team about your application as anchor locker dimensions and fall play an important role in deciding what type of winch will suit your application best.
There are three types of windlasses available;
Drum Winch- Ideal where space is limited. Tuck neatly inside the anchor locker.
Vertical Windlasses - They offer low profile and do not dominate the fore deck. They are characterised by situating the gypsy (topworks) above the deck and the motor and gearbox below.
Horizontal Windlasses (Deck Windlass) - are mounted completely above deck including the gypsy and motor/gearbox. They provide a 90 degree wrap of the anchor rode around the gypsy. Generally easier to install and a good option with small anchor lockers.
