Once the domain of only the largest yachts, a new wave of captive winch design and technology has provided the catalyst for the development of winches for boats in the 14 m -18 m (45'- 60') range. Robust and compact, these belowdeck winches keep topsides clear for a clean, uncluttered look. Use for remote line handling: raise/lower halyard, trim/ease mainsheet—all at the touch of a button.
The winch frame and drum are 6061-T6 hardcoat-anodized aluminum. All parts connected to hydraulic or electrical circuitry are positioned on the same side for maintenance. The screw bearings and gear transmission are also located on this side for easy inspection. Bearings are self-lubricated. The main gearbox is sealed and lubricated with oil.
Electric captives in 3-ton sizes come standard with 12-volt or 24-volt power. The 3T version is also available with a 24-volt high-speed (HS) motor. The winch has a single gear and is managed with push buttons for trimming and easing. A mechanical switch limits the stroke of the feeder to prevent overrides. Winches include a dual-function control box with a built-in load controller that combines two products into one, reducing wiring and connection points by almost half and greatly simplifying installation. The dual-function control box supports the Digital System Switch or analog switches. A mix of switches is not supported.
