Horizontal Windlasses

Windlasses are systems used to help raise and lower the boat anchor and are available in vertical and horizontal options. Deciding which type of windlass you need is dependent on a few factors. The size of your boat, the anchor size, and the material of your anchor rod. IE Boat Supplies has a selection of horizontal windlasses from Maxwell and Lewmar.

Horizontal windlasses are mounted above deck, and because of this, they are easier to install than their vertical counterparts. This also makes them easier to perform maintenance on.  Horizontal windlasses are often preferred when your boat has a smaller chain locker.

Horizontal Windlass For All Types of Boats

The Maxwell HRC FF-8 Horizontal Windlass is a simple to activate windlass that can be controlled at the helm station or by foot switch. Its new, revolutionary Wave Design will adapt to various chain pitches and sizes. The H2G Lewmar Horizontal Windlass has a quick and easy one-piece installation and is built for reliable performance for boats up to 48ft.
