The Andersen Winch Power Rib©

The Andersen Winch Power Rib© The Power Rib© is unique to Andersen Winches©, and this is one of the reasons why Andersen Winches have gained the reputation as the world’s best. Our winches are easy on sheets and halyards, thus extending their lifetime and saving money and work. With very low vertical friction, the sheet slides easily upwards, ensuring safe functioning when sailing.

The Power Rib runs parallel to the rope movement up the drum, and the drum areas between the Power Ribs are polished. This allows the drum to easily push the turn upwards from below, thus preventing riding turns.

The grip allows for reduced number of turns on the winch, making handling - such as tacking - significantly easier. Andersen Winches are self-adjusting and allow you to use a variety of sheets and halyards on the same winch -without compromising safety and reliability.

The height and shape of the Power Rib is individually adapted to each winch in order to optimize the grip in relation to the load.



Andersen Standard Winches

Andersen Standard Winches

Small yachts need quality winches just as much as large yachts. The crews of small yachts also need to economize on manpower, and there is a need for positive sheet adjustment. Uncompromising quality is an Andersen Winches© hallmark that starts with standard winches. Manufactured in stainless steel, these all feature the Power Rib© to facilitate winching under all conditions and circumstances.

Andersen Winch Selection Guide

Andersen Winch Selection Guide

Choose your ANDERSEN Winches© to reflect the size of your yacht and your sailing requirements. This chart is intended for masthead-rigged mono-hull yachts of medium displacement. When choosing electric or hydraulic winches, the selection is similar to that of a manually operated winch. Please note that this chart is based on standards and will not reflect all variables and differences in the large variety of yacht types and sizes on the market.

Fractional Rigged Boats: We recommend that you refer to the sail area, and not to the length of the yacht.

Heavy Displacement: The displacement must be taken into account. It is advisable to choose a winch larger than that stated in the chart.

Ultra Light Displacement: Should normally be able to select smaller winches but the righting moment must also be taken into account.

Multihulls: Catamarans, trimarans and other boats with increased righting moments should use winches with a higher power ratio.
