    Andersen 1 Speed 18ST Full Stainless Self-Tailing Winch RA 2018010000

    Andersen 2-speed, size 18 self-tailing winches are made with uncompromising quality, precision and reliability allowing you to manage your sails with the utmost confidence and efficiency. The full stainless self-tailing winch is beauty at work, enhancing the unique image of your boat and the sheer pleasure of beholding it. This winch is a prerequisite for the yachtsman who take pride in making his yacht look its best.

    Features:

    • Smooth Power Rib© drum has vertical ribs on the surface providing maximum grip with minimum wear on lines
      • ANDERSEN Winches© feature the Power Rib™
      • Unlike other winches with abrasive drum surfaces, ANDERSEN winch drums have vertical ribs running up the surface
      • This combined with the smooth polished stainless steel gives a maximum grip and minimum wear on ropes, reducing the replacements costs of sheets and halyards
      • The Power Rib principle simply makes sailing more pleasurable
        • Fewer turns on the winch make tacking easier
        • Sheets can be gently eased out without harsh snatching and the risks of overrides and jammed sheets are significantly reduced
      • The grip provided by the ribs will remain the same year after year, unlike other winches with an abrasive or sandpaper-like surface, because those surfaces have a tendency to wear down both ropes and themselves
    • The self-tailing system adjusts automatically to suit various line sizes
    • Curved self-tailing arm gives a fair lead and is adjustable through 360°
    • Aluminum-bronze upper base plate is approximately 2-1/2 times stronger than traditional bronze
    • Stainless steel ball bearings
    • 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
    • Convertible to electric using Andersen's modular system
    • Servicing is only required every 2 years with normal use
    • 3-Year Warranty
