Maxwell Windlasses & Anchoring Equipment


Maxwell can supply a full range of anchor rodes including chain only, rope only or pre-spliced combination rope and chain rodes. Chain, suitable for vessels up to 100 metres (about 300 feet), is available in short or stud link variations in both metric and imperial sizes. Stocks both 3-strand and 8 plait (braid) Maxwell Anchor Line Nylon commonly used on vessels up to 20 metres (65 feet) as well as ropes and hawsers commonly seen on superyachts.

Maxwell Anchor Swivels use of a swivel and joining shackle to join your anchor and rode will greatly improve anchor retrieval and help ensure that the rode lays neatly into your anchor locker.

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.
