Harken Performa® winches are for racers and racer/cruisers using high-tech line who don’t wish to invest in a carbon winch.
The Performa design combines the efficiency of Harken Radial winches with the sandblasted grip of its Carbon Fiber racing line for a powerful hybrid that transfers high loads to the winch with fewer wraps, letting crew trim and ease sails quickly and repeatedly as wind strength and directions change.
Use on sportboats where sails require frequent trimming and saving weight is important.
