The Lewmar VX range is the result of a comprehensive overhaul of their vertical windlass production carried out by the Lewmar dedicated engineering team.
New lighter, stronger and performance optimised materials have been explored, evaluated and tested to produce a windlass unit at the cutting edge of design and manufacture.
Lewmar claim that due to new generation technology, the VX windlass range is lighter, stronger and more efficient than any competitor on the market.
The Lewmar VX1 is manufactured with a cast aluminum core, a composite outer and a stainless steel finish.
Lewmar VX1 is suitable for motor and sailing yachts between approximately 28 feet and 36 feet length overall.
Consult the Lewmar Windlass Size Guide for more detailed information on selecting the correct model for your yacht.
