The Lewmar CPX range is a culmination of Lewmar engineering development, based on the successful VX range, but with enhanced weight saving design and construction.

Lewmar have redesigned the working function to reduce the number of moving components and carefully selected materials aimed at durability, relaibility, serviceability and weight saving e.g. hard anodised aluminium base, cast stainless steel for the gypsy top cap and chain pipe cover.

Lewmar CPX3 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.

Lewmar Recommended Windlass Maintenance

Regular Servicing

  • Wash down the windlass using fresh water.
  • Examine all electrical connections for corrosion, clean and lightly grease.
  • Check anchor locker drain to avoid water damage to motor/gearbox.
  • If anchor locker fills with water, check motor is dry and free of rust.
  • Check anchor rode splice for wear.
  • Check gypsy as it is a high wear item and will last longer if properly used. When re-assembling the cone and gypsy, add a small smear of grease to the contact surfaces.
  • Check mounting studs after first two or three recoveries and regularly thereafter.

Annual Servicing

  • Check electric cables for damage.  Repair/renew as required.
  • Strip the above deck components, clean and lightly grease.
  • Check motor/gearbox for corrosion, clean and repaint with a suitable marine grade oil-based enamel paint.
  • Remove electric motor cover and blow dust away from brushes using foot pump or similar taking care not to breathe any dust.
