Andersen Sailboat Winches


Andersen Winches © are all about design and engineering. They believe in setting standards because this is the only way that they can ensure a lifetime of safe sailing for customers and a future at sea for their products. To achieve this, they employ state-of-the-art manufacturing technology, and a staff that is dedicated to continuous development and improvement. Andersen remains at the cutting edge of winch development by working closely with yachtsmen and sailing professionals. Andersen manufactures the finest quality sailboat winches and hardware for your boat, and we are proud to be one of the largest distributors of Andersen marine products for sailboats in the USA.

Andersen winches are made of stainless steel, and the drums are constructed with a vertical Power Rib design to ensure a smooth surface and a corrosion-free winch that minimizes wear and tear on the cordage onboard your boat. The Full Stainless Steel winches are made entirely of stainless steel, so there are no exposed composite alloys that can distract the eye - Everything you see is stainless steel! And, with the larger models, you can start with a manual winch and later add power. So, whether your boat came with Andersen winches installed and you are looking at replacements or you are interested in upgrading your boat and replacing the existing winches, you cannot find a better winch that an Andersen.

Please note: For electric winches, a 2+1 designation means that there are two manual speeds, and one electric speed, while a 2+2 designation means that there are two manual speeds and two electric speeds.

Our warehouse outlet located in Waterford, CT is frequently used as a second warehouse by Andersen, so if you need any Andersen sailboat hardware for your boat, you can typically find it right here on our website.
