Andersen Winches are lightweight, are durable stainless steel sailboat winches. One of the greatest features of Andersen stainless steel winches is the Power Rib. Unlike other sailboat winches with abrasive or machine cut drum surfaces, the drums have vertical ribs running up the surface.
Whether you have a small yacht, or are just looking for a traditional look for your boat, the Andersen Classic Winches provide hallmark quality and performance in a simple non-self-tailing configuration.
The choice for uncompromised Andersen performance in a manual winch, the Andersen Black Trim is perfect for the sailor seeking convenience and reliability. It incorporates an 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 their winches, Andersen Standard winch utilises their exclusive "Power Rib" system for a firm line grip and minimal rope surface abrasion. The unique vertical rib drum design holds the line better than rough surface or machine groove drums, requiring the user to apply less force with fewer line wraps, to achieve comparable winch force. The smooth drum surface is also corrosion free and ensures extended line life.
