… sailboats, dinghies and classic yachts, we have a wide range of stylish, solid winches from well-known, traditional manufacturers. Wilmex heavy-duty halyard winches made of bronze and stainless steel are equipped with a band brake system. They are designed for halyards and stretchers made of wire or suitable, high-strength materials such as Dyneema. These winches have also proven as very good leeboard winches on flat-bottomed boats. For this use, these winches are available turning clockwise or counterclockwise (to be mounted on both sides of the ship). For larger dutch barge types like tjalk, klipper or aak we recommend our original, traditional manual windlasses for wire that come with a flywheel.
