Seldén are well respected, world leading manufacturers of deck and rigging hardware for both cruising and performance yachts.

Seldén have combined cutting edge technology, innovative concepts and the optimum choice of materials to produce a remarkable range of winches designed for more efficient, safer sailing.

Modern alloys and stainless-steel grades have been carefully selected and developed to reduce weight and minimise the need for maintenance.

Seldén-specific concave scalloping of the rope drum provides exceptional grip, reduces the number of turns required, cuts down the risk of a riding turn and allows quick, controlled release.

Selden self tailing winch drum shaping

Seldén self-tailing configuration is markedly different from the traditional wedge shape with the rope gripped in a semi-circular groove, and kept in place by a spring-loaded disc.

Seldén’s inventive self-tailing design combined with the assured grip on the drum allows the slack in the sheet to be trimmed with the line engaged in the self-tailing mechanism and the winch handle mounted on top.
