Evo Winches are designed for simple servicing and easy installation, backed by a comprehensive seven-year warranty.
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).
- 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 up with a comprehensive seven-year warranty.
