Anchor winches or anchor windlasses are machines that are used to let out and bring back up a boat's anchor. These boat anchor winches help to reduce the strain and difficulty of manually raising your anchor. Wholesale Marine carries a wide range of anchor winches for various size boats and boating needs from brands like TRAC, Attwood, Minn Kota, and EZ Anchor.
There are two types of anchor winches: electric anchor winches, and winches that work off hydraulics. Electric anchor winches are typically found on smaller boats, where hydraulic winches are often found on larger vessels with hydraulics already in place. When selecting the right winch, it is important to consider the size and the weight of the boat.
For smaller watercraft, the TRAC G3 25 Electric Anchor Winch is a great option for boats up to 20 feet. It provides excellent holding power using a 12-Volt DC battery. For anchors up to 25lbs, the Minn Kota Deckhand 25. It automatically raises and lowers with the touch of a button and senses the bottom to allow for controlled drifting. For larger watercraft, The E-Z Anchor Puller Hero Direct Drive Drum Anchor Winch is the strongest, most durable anchoring system worldwide and comes with a 7-year manufacturer’s warranty.
