Racing Winch 65

Racing Winch 65

  • Self-tailing & top cleat
  • 2- & 3-speed versions
  • Electric & hydraulic

Developed for the harshest conditions and most competitive races on earth, Harken carbon fiber racing winches are the choice of professionals and top tier racers alike.

Winches feature carbon skirts and tops, aluminum drums, and strong composite jaws with one-piece sculpted line guide and peeler. PEEK roller bearings are low-maintenance, reliable, and efficient. They ride in large-diameter cages, allowing more bearings to carry the load. Stainless steel drive gears are strong and durable. If class rules dictate, winches are also available in all-aluminum with stainless steel gears. The AC versions of the 65.3ST and 65.2ST winches feature titanium gears for extremely high strength-to-weight ratios and exceptional resistance to corrosion.

Complete customization

Options include self-tailing arms, top cleats, free-spinning or ratcheting base sheave additions, and left-handed rotation. Base riser required to mount B65 winches above deck. Specify above deck or flush deck version when ordering. Use base sheaves for cross-sheeting and lazy sheets.

Power ratios

Carbon winches come with up to three speeds and can be driven by handle, pedestal, or by electric or hydraulic motors.

Self-tailing

The self-tailing mechanism on the winch means that one crew member can quickly and easily trim or raise sails.

Top cleat

Use the top cleat to quickly secure lines.
