Harken have long been a popular choice for winches due to their quality, with their winches aboard everything from the smallest sportsboats to the largest mega yachts.

 

When it comes to electric winches, Harken have an excellent range for both cruisers and racers with varying features to choose from, including 1, 2, and 3 speeds, horizontal, vertical and compact motor configurations, ‘shaped grip’ or ‘sandblasted grip’ and a rewind feature.

Electric winches are becoming increasingly common. Used to reduce the strain of trimming and hoisting sails, electric winches make sailing more accessible; with strength no longer a barrier, it’s easy to sail short-handed or with minimal crew, share sailing with family and friends, plus prolong your time on the water for years to come.

Andersen Winches are iconic. Often considered the benchmark for quality, Andersen’s elegant, stainless steel winches take pride of place on every deck. Underneath the stainless steel exterior, an internal construction manufactured from aluminium bronze – which is far more durable than aluminium – ensures cruising sailors can be safe in the knowledge their Andersen winch will last for a lifetime.

We are constantly reporting on the latest innovations in the marine industry which offer weight savings whilst, at the same time, increasing safety factors. The result: lighter, faster, safer and more exciting sailing.
