Product Overview

Back-winding winch makes sail handling a breeze.

EVO® Winches are an evolution of the renowned Lewmar Ocean Winch. They’re easy to service, with no tools required, available in a choice of gray or black aluminum alloy or chrome bronze finishes to suit your boat, and are easily convertible to electric (sizes 40 - 65).

Lewmar has been evolving and improving winch technology for almost half a century. Since the 1960s Lewmar has developed winch solutions for the world’s leading boatbuilders, custom yards and racing teams. Now Lewmar has upgraded their Ocean Winch; the most popular winch ever made, and improved it further. The new EVO winch is a development containing years of knowledge and understanding of what sailors and boatbuilders want. Cruising sailors want a proven quality winch that can be serviced by the boat owner without any tools. They wanted to be able to put the winch together themselves, and they also wanted a reliable and predictable grip.Racing sailors liked the alloy, needle-peened finish of Lewmar’s winches. Their only request was that they’d like it in black, so now EVO Winches are available in black, gray and chrome bronze finishes. No compromises have been made in terms of quality or integrity of design. You won’t find much plastic here, with high-quality alloys and metal. 

Simple servicing: No tools are required to service a Lewmar EVO winch, simply unscrew the top cap with your fingers to remove the drum and provide access to the gear train. If you try to put a Lewmar EVO winch together wrongly, it will become very clear that youve got it wrong; it is impossible to service the winch and put it back together incorrectly. Safety and convenience has been designed into every EVO winch.

Wavespring jaw and stripper ring: The integrated investment-cast stainless steel feeder arm completely covers the winch, and does not create a rope trap above the Wavespring jaws. Directional arrows allow foolproof loading of the winch, a very helpful feature if you are sailing with an inexperienced crew. The stripper position can be adjusted to smoothly feed the rope out of the jaws and into the cockpit.

Electric winches: Whatever sailing you do, short-handed or long-distance cruising, it’s easy to install electric winches or upgrade your existing winches with one of Lewmar’s conversion kits. EVO winches offer sail trimming at the push of a button for more relaxed and comfortable sailing.

Seven-year warranty: With an aggressive in-house testing program, Lewmar backs EVO® Winches upwith a comprehensive seven-year warranty.
