Our direct drive feature and 4-way valve allows the winch to freewheel out without the use of hydraulics, and ratchet dog keeps the rode where you want it once the anchor is set. Maritime Fab winches have evolved based on 30+ years of manufacturing and fishing experience, making the finished product more compact, robust and better suited for the marine environment.
Our 12”x16” winch size has been a standard for many Bristol Bay boats in years past. With the increase in boat size and need for more rode, our 16”x16” has become the standard. For remote operations and ease of “auto fairleading,” our 20”x12” size works great, and is popular with many boat builders.
