Ideal for boats 40-75 feet, Anchorlift’s Mako 1500 motor 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. With capstan for optional warping operation, the deck unit and vertical shaft are constructed from the highest quality 316 Grade Stainless Steel. With a highspeed drop of up to 125ft per minute, manual free fall with adjustable clutch, resulting in long-term trouble-free operation.

Being vertical the Mako 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.

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.
