The choice for uncompromised Andersen performance in a manual winch, their Self-Tailing Winches are perfect for the sailor seeking convenience and reliability. The Standard Self-Tailing Winch and Full Stainless Self-Tailing Winch incorporate their exclusive self-tailing mechanism that automatically accommodates a wide range of different sheet and halyard sizes allowing each winch to serve numerous onboard purposes. From raising sails to trimming sheets, these winches provide the reliable power you need for smooth sailing.
As with all Andersen Winches, the Standard Self-Tailing winch features the exclusive stainless steel Power Rib drum for maximum power and extended line life. This unique drum design uses vertical ribs to firmly grip the line, requiring fewer turns to achieve the same line-holding grip when compared with traditional winch drums. The smooth surface is also corrosion free and far less abrasive to your sheets and halyards to extend the life of your lines.
