Lewmar Winches Selection Guide

Lewmar Winches Selection Guide

Efficient sail handling begins with the selection of the correct winch. To help you select from the winches described on this site the chart below is designed as a quick reference to match application, yacht size and winch. Cross reference your yacht size (for masthead rigs) or sail area (fractional rigs) with application, to ascertain the correct winch. You can also send your deck and sail plans to your Lewmar representative, who will be pleased to make individual recommendations. REMEMBER, runner winch and mainsheet winch selection depends on the purchase system fitted and expected loads. Dynamic sail loads can easily increase the loads dramatically. Multihulls generally have a higher righting moment than monohulls of equivalent lengths, resulting in higher dynamic loading, therefore winch size needs to be larger. Consult your Lewmar representative or rigger for further guidance.
