VW vertical windlasses

VW Series anchor winches are designed for traditional rope and chain combination anchor rodes, where manual transfer of the rode from the rope warping drum to the chainwheel is required.

Features and benefits:

  • Provides the versatility of operating two anchors from one winch
  • Functional rope hauling from any direction using independent MAX-grip™ snag-free warping drum with clutch disengagement of chainwheel for positive control of all ropes
  • Permits use of traditional shackle and thimble rope and chain connection
  • Allows alternative mounting horizontally on a fore-and-aft bulkhead inside a chain locker for below-deck installation
  • High-quality finish on above-deck components, manufactured from marine-grade stainless steel (AISI 316) and chromed bronze, for long-term durability
  • Cone type brake/clutch mechanism permits manual ‘Free-Fall’ anchoring. Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement ensuring safe operator control
  • Chainwheel locking pawl (except on VW500 and VW10)
  • Simplified through-deck installation by modular design and precise alignment of gearbox to the topworks utilizing marine-grade stainless steel (AISI 316) bolts
  • Anodized aluminum gearbox and spacer tube
  • Heavy duty, dual-direction motor, designed for marine winches
  • Easily disassembled for servicing
