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 VX3 is manufactured with a cast aluminum core, a composite outer and a stainless steel finish.
Lewmar VX3 is suitable for motor and sailing yachts between approximately 38 feet and 46 feet length overall.
Consult the Lewmar Windlass Size Guide for more detailed information on selecting the correct model for your yacht.

14mm rope is strength-comparable and splice-compatible to 8mm Grade 40 DIN766 Calibrated Chain
16mm rope is a little under strength compared with 10mm Grade 40 Calibrated Anchor Chain.
16mm and 18mm rope are splice-compatible with 10mm DIN766/ISO Grade 40 Calibrated Anchor Chain
We do splice 16mm diameter anchor rope into 8mm Chain on request but it is a border line tight fit in the link
