How to choose this product
An electric winch is powered by a motor situated below the deck. It allows crew to tighten rigging without effort.
These fittings facilitate line adjustment when unusual effort is required. They can be used to adjust sheets, halyards and other lines, and are particularly useful on very large sailboats or those with crew including seniors or others with physical limitations.
Such winches resemble manual models to which a powerful electric motor has been added. The internal gearing increases mechanical advantage and lines are wrapped around a drum coated with a non-slip surface. They are controlled by waterproof switches installed nearby.
Models with multiple gear ratios offer different winching speeds, while drum diameter determines maximum load. On self-tailing versions, a built-in cleat in the form of circular jaws around the top of the drum keeps tension on the free end of the line.
How to choose
Choice will depend on the winch's location on the deck and anticipated maximum load. Adequate installation space, including for the motor, is another factor. A self-tailing model is particularly useful when sailing short-handed.
- Nearly effortless line handling
