Lofrans Windlasses - Vertical


Lofrans Windlasses - Vertical

A Vertical anchor windlass features a vertical rotation in relation to the deck which allows a reduced volume above deck as the electric motor and the gear box are sitting in the chain locker. Also keep in mind that the height between the top of the stacked chain and the underdeck must be 300 mm minimum in order to ensure a fast dropping of the chain in the locker and an optimum performance of the windlass.

The X & SX vertical windlass range series is designed to provide anchoring solutions for sail and motor boats from 18 to 100 feet. The X series as standard, comes in mirror polished marine bronze produced by hot forging and it is made up by the following models: X1, X2, X3, X4 and Ercole Vertical. All X series windlasses are available in standard version with drum and in low profile version. The SX Series is the new, round base vertical windlass and consists of the models SX1, SX2, SX3, SX3.5, SX4 and SX5. The SX Series is constructed with marine stainless steel AISI 316L to make sure the windlass is corrosion free. In addition the round base designs offers a more compact structure. All SX series windlasses are available in standard version with drum and in low profile version, except the SX1 (only low profile).
All models are available in different motorization to meet all customers™ requirements. The ranges X4 to Ercole Vertical, from X Series, and SX4 to SX5, from SX Series, have been designed to be installed in yachts with a length of more that 55ft. These yachts require well-designed professional equipment, with a high mechanical performance and a high level of reliability. With a purpose-built gearbox design, giving them top performance in terms of maximum pull and speed, these models are a reference point in their category. Lofrans™ has achieved an excellent reputation for these specific anchor windlasses, which are installed on the most prestigious yachts throughout the world.
