Sailing is a past time enjoyed by boaters, challenging many with their on-deck skills, navigation and understanding the elements they face.

And this can be a daunting thought for in-experienced boaters or people who just want to relax and sail without too much effort, says Aquafax product and marketing manager Richard Pardoe.

For these sailors, Lewmar’s electric winch kit and electric conversion upgrades offer much easier sail boat handling with full self-tailing winch operation and sail trimming at the touch of a button.

The winches can also be used manually if owners want to enjoy a more deep-rooted sailing experience.

“Lewmar electric winches and conversion upgrades do give boaters more confidence and still allow them to enjoy the pleasure and relaxation of sailing,” said Richard. “As consumers, we like to push a button and get a result; powered winches are an obvious upgrade to offer a customer looking to buy a sail boat.”

Lewmar's electric winch kits and conversions are available from size 40 winches and have a motor gearbox fitted with a prewired contactor for easy installation.

They also offer an electric load sensing contactor that will trip and reset automatically if the winch is overloaded.
