Compact, stainless-steel windlasses for power and sail boats feature an elegant, low-profile design that conceals a robust, reliable drive train. The worm gearbox, spline shaft and drive train guarantee maximum strength, control and performance with every use. Plus, they deploy rope/chain or all-chain anchor rodes at the touch of a button. Features manual override and chain: release function and a cone clutch for smooth, easy control. The V1/2/3 windlasses now feature FastFit, which makes installation quick and easy and ensures proper drive shaft alignment during installation. All models include breaker, up/down switch, dual-direction solenoid and clutch handle. Listed here in 12V. Also available in 24V.
