Anchorlift Dolphin Windlass


Ideal for boats 35-45 feet long. These Low Profile models are designed for smooth & silent motor/gear operation under the deck and take up less deck space. Powerful windlass with a new compact motor.

Ideal for boats 35-45 feet long, Anchorlift’s Dolphin Windlass is a powerful, compact and easy to install vertical windlass. The Low Profile design minimises space required on deck and delivers smooth and silent motor/gear operation from under the deck. The deck unit and vertical shaft are constructed from the highest quality 316 Grade Stainless Steel. A powerful 1000 watt motor delivers a highspeed drop of up to 130ft per minute, manual free fall with adjustable clutch, resulting in long-term trouble-free operation

Being vertical the Dolphin takes up less space on deck and is lighter than horizontal windlasses. Easy to install, vertical windlasses are better protected from direct contact with salt water, since the gear & motor are installed underneath the deck. Dolphin windlasses work with both ‘chain only’ or a ‘rope/chain’ combinations.

When selecting a windlass system there are some important matters to consider:

  • boat size
  • displacement
  • windage
  • anchor size
  • chain size

Choosing a windlass system too small for your boat could result in compromising your safety and inevitably costly repairs. The most common way to rate a windlass is by its maximum pulling power (or lifting power) and maximum working load. Anchorlift offers windlasses in several sizes and design and motors from 400 – 4000 watts in 12, 24, 230 & 380 volt.
