Racing Winch 990

Racing Winch 990

  • Self-tailing & top cleat
  • 2- & 3-speed versions
  • Carbon, aluminum, ceramic
  • 5T MWL

These powerful carbon winches are aboard large megayachts, performance cruisers, and racing monohulls and multihulls over 18 m (60'). Wide-diameter drums provide extra surface area to hold line securely under high loads. Fewer wraps speed line retrieval when sheeting.

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. The AC versions of the 990.3ST winches feature titanium gears for extremely high strength-to-weight ratios and exceptional resistance to corrosion.

Complete customization

Options include self-tailing, baser risers, free-spinning or ratcheting base sheave additions, and left-handed rotation.

Different materials

990 winches are available in a variety of materials and finishes: aluminum, stainless steel or ceramic drums; tops and bases in lightweight carbon fiber, anodized aluminum, or polished stainless.

Power ratios

Carbon winches come with up to three speeds and can be driven by handle, pedestal. Power ratios up to 100:1.

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.
