About ANDERSEN Winches

Beautifully elegant inside and out, ANDERSEN sailboat winches are a reflection of the functional needs and aesthetic demands of top quality sailing yachts worldwide. Developed using state-of-the-art production techniques that have been carefully refined for more than 60 years, each of our winches reflects a sincere dedication to offer the most outstanding performance from the highest quality winches to our customers.

Built to last, all ANDERSEN Winches™ feature our exclusive stainless steel Power Rib™ drum for maximum power and extended line life. This unique drum design uses vertical ribs to firmly grip the line, requiring fewer turns to achieve the same line-holding power when compared with other winch drums. The smooth surface is also corrosion free and far less abrasive to your sheets and halyards for extended line life.

Recognized as "A classic example of brilliant industrial design," ANDERSEN Winches™ received the Industrial Design Prize of 1992 from the Danish Design Center. This highly scrutinised honour is presented to very few Danish products each year. We are extremely proud of this recognition as it acknowledges that great engineering is the foundation of a successful product. That is why thousands of yachtsmen worldwide choose ANDERSEN Winches™.

From basic Classic Winches to complex hydraulic and electric winch systems, ANDERSEN offers a full range of line control products to fit every sailorís needs. Careful consideration should be given to all factors including boat size, experience, prevailing conditions and crew before selecting the right winch for your boat.
