Modular Power System
Our Modular Power System is engineered with a focus on flexibility and simplicity. The flexibility makes it possible to choose and implement a motor-powered unit at a convenient time, since all ANDERSEN Self-Tailing Winches (28ST and above) are factory prepared for future change.
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 maximum grip with minimum wear on ropes, reducing the replacements costs of sheets and halyards.
