    Andersen's Compact Self-Tailing Electric Winches are made with uncompromising quality, precision and reliability allowing you to manage your sails with the utmost confidence, efficiency and safety. The motor was created by Andersen specifically for marine winch use. It is truly compact and the variable speed design gives superb sail control and fine adjustment capability.



      • Motor, gears and control box are integrated into one compact unit
      • Highly efficient motor with impressive line speed and first-rate maximum load
      • The motor is built on an entirely new commutator principle using no carbon brushes, resulting in the virtual elimination of wear and tear
      • 30-50% less power consumption compared to a conventional electric motor
      • Variable-speed compact motor is especially developed for use as a marine winch motor


      • Smooth Power Rib© drum has vertical ribs on the surface providing maximum grip with minimum wear on lines
      • The self-tailing system adjusts automatically to suit various line sizes, the self-tailing arm adjusts through 360 degrees
      • Curved self-tailing arm gives a fair lead, friction is minimized due to the holding power of the drum
      • Aluminum-bronze upper base plate is approximately 2-1/2 times stronger than traditional bronze
      • Clever design and material selection result in strength and weight similar to or lighter than aluminum winches
      • Drum design allows fewer turns on the winch making tacking and sail handling easier
      • Captive pawls and springs make servicing and greasing easy
      • Extremely strong machined AISI 316 cold-pressed stainless steel pawls
      • AISI 329 stainless steel drive shaft
      • Upper and lower bearings are designed to be as far apart as possible, resulting in increased support for the drum while increasing efficiency
      • Large-diameter bearing to absorb drum loads and increase efficiency


      • Winch mounts directly onto the motor for easy deck or mast installation
      • Control switch with step-less speed control-The more you push the control button down, the more power and line speed you will get
      • Circuit breaker safety switch with circuit board provides reliable circuit protection and has LED indicators for easy trouble shooting
      • The motor stops and the control switch light flashes before damaging the motor if the: Maximum winch load is exceeded, maximum temperature is exceeded, Use by more than one control switch or if the run time is to long
      • Modular system allows for motor upgrades/changes in the future without having to drill new holes
