The Maxwell Windlass range has an appropriate windlass for almost any boat. Maxwell features vertical and horizontal winches for chain rode and for rope and chain. Most windlasses feature an optional capstan for independent rope handling. A compact anchor winch such as the Maxwell RC suits smaller vessels and especially sailboats. A more heavy duty windlass such as a VW or HW works for larger boats. Use the selection guide at the bottom of this page to determine which Maxwell windlass is right for your boat.
