          The VW Series of anchor winches is designed for traditional rope and chain combination anchor rodes where manual transfer of the rode from the rope warping drum to the chainwheel is required. The gypsy/chain wheel on the VW1000, VW1500, VW2500 and VW3500 is for chain only but the rode can be manually transitioned from the chain wheel/gypsy to the capstan so the windlass can technically work with a rope chain rode but not seamlessly like the VW10.


          • Provides the versatility of operating two anchors from one winch
          • Functional rope hauling from any direction using independent MAX-grip™ snag-free warping drum with clutch disengagement of chainwheel for positive control of all ropes
          • Permits use of traditional shackle and thimble rope and chain connection
          • Allows alternative mounting horizontally on a fore and aft bulkhead inside chain locker for below deck installation
          • High-quality finish on above deck components manufactured from marine grade 316 Stainless Steel and chromed bronze for long term durability
          • Cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits manual "free fall" anchoring - Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement ensuring safe and precise operator control
          • Chainwheel locking pawl
          • Simple through deck installation by modular design and precise alignment of gearbox to the topworks utilizing marine-grade Stainless Steel bolts
          • Marine-grade alloy gearbox housing finished with 2 coat paint system
          • Heavy duty, dual direction motor designed for marine winches
          • Easily disassembled for servicing

            • A deck clearance increase will also increase the "D" measurement by the same increment.

          Includes the Following Components:

          • (1) foot switch - P19006
          • On/Off breaker panel - P100791
          • Emergency crank handle

          Note: The gypsy or chain wheel on the VW10 will accept rope and chain so it can be used with a chain only rode, a rope only rode, or a chain and rope rode and will transition from rope to chain seamlessly/automatically.

          Note: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper or snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. The chainstopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
