Lewmar has launched its new heavy lift Lloyd's Approved V10 and V12 windlass. The deck units are constructed from 316 stainless steel, with drums featuring Lewmar's W.A.R.P (Wear and Abrasion Resistant Pattern).
The centre shaft of the windlass has a support structure built to provide the ultimate in strength to withstand high loads on vessels up to 160 feet (50m). The V10 and V12 windlass gypsies are driven by a solid dog-drive that can easily be disconnected for controlled anchor descent via a band brake. The band brake can be operated with a winch handle or remotely via two choices of hand wheel.
Both sizes are available as gypsy only and gypsy drum in left hand, right hand and remote chain pipe configurations. Power option include 24V DC, 208V and 400V AC, or hydraulic. Extensive ranges of metric and imperial chain gypsies are available to suit most yacht specifications including chain size up to 22mm Stud Link. Lewmar also supply a complete range of Lloyd's approved capstans, anchors, chain stoppers, wild cats and roller to complement its windlasses.
