Product Overview

Lightweight winch ready for constant use.

Advanced technology and innovative combined has made high-performance Ocean Series the world's most popular winches. Racing sailors will appreciate the light weight, smooth operation and flawless performance developed through years of experience on the race course. Cruising sailors can benefit from Lewmar's race-bred engineering.

Only the finest materials are used by Lewmar. A substancial, all-bronze one-piece center stem supports stainless steel main shafts and gear spindles that lend exceptional strength. Bronze gear trains deliver smooth power; high-tensile bronze gears are machine cut to very high tolerances. The rigid, one-piece nylon cage with snap-in stainless steel bearings and integral grease pocket for permanent lubrication and free-running bearings assure you the winch will not seize up under any operating load.

Fewer moving parts means fewer problems and simpler maintenance. Assisted by a screw-on cap and strip-from-the-top construction, Lewmar winches can be easily and completely disassembled by the consumer without removing the winch from the boat. And Ocean's unique grip pattern makes rope handling easy.
