The “X” vertical windlasses are suitable for sail and motor boats from 6m to 27m in length. They have different motorization attributes according to each model.
The standard features that you can meet in every X series windlass are:
Watertight stainless steel ball bearing in the base (for better functionality and zero maintenance) which is a unique feature in the windlass market.
The clutch is made by two conical discs connected to the main shaft by two parallel planes on the shaft, in order to avoid using keys and allocate the weight load properly.
The electric motor and gearbox are connected by a particular coupling that is made by a socket for easier maintenance.
There is a sensor in the base and a magnet into the gipsy so they can be connected to a chain counter.
Manual override so that the chain or rope can be recovered manually in case of electric function failure.
To select the proper anchor windlass, you must determine whether it’s for a light or heavy use, so we have created a Windlass Selection Tool to help you. Please note that this tool offers recommendations; for your final windlass selection, your local distributor will be able to advise and assist you.
