Karver Systems’ has launched three new winches.

The Karver Compact Winch has two speeds - fast and powerful – and is suitable for boats from 6m to 12m.

It has the same dimensions as Karver’s size 20 and the same working load as the company’s size 40.

The Karver Power Winch has four speeds and is billed as being three times more powerful than other models.

The manual winch is designed as an alternative to an electrical winch, making it easier for sailors to get back on the water who may have stopped because of the physical effort involved.

“Over the years, equipment on racing yachts has evolved, far too often, into technical complexities corresponding less and less to the sailor’s needs,” said a company spokesman.

The winch is available in three sizes, KPW110, size 40; KPW130, size 46; KPW150, size 52.

The last of Karver’s new winches is the Karver Speed Winch that has four automatic speeds.

“That means you can hoist a mainsail with a 20m halyard with only 28 turns of the winch handle instead of 167 with a standard winch.

“Racers will certainly understand this main advantage when they are tacking or gybing faster than others,” said the spokesman.

The winch is available in three models: the KSW40, KSW46 and KSW52.

Karver has also launched its smallest flying furler designed for yachts from 5m to 10m.

The KF0.9 is suitable for a gennaker and code 0 sail.
