  • The stainless steel (AISI 316).
  • This more powerful RC12-10 can be used with 10mm (3/8”) chain spliced to 16-20mm (5/8”) three strand or preferably 8-braid (plait) nylon rope.
  •  The elegantly designed deckplate and chainpipe cover are manufactured in polished marine-grade (AISI 316) stainless steel, as are the heavy duty pressure arm, stripper, chainwheel and fluted capstan drum.
  • The extra large, through deck, hawse pipe throat, ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker
  • Double cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits ‘Free Fall’ anchoring. Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement, ensuring safe and precise operator control.
  • Emergency manual retrieval is made simple and easy with Maxwell’s unique “Active Latch Ratchet System” operation that prevents backwind of the windlass during manual hauling of the anchor.
  • New and innovative black, hard anodised gearbox provides numerous advantages:
    • Fast and easy windlass installation
    • More corrosion resistant
    • Easy to maintain and service
    • Takes up less room in the anchor locker
    • 75:1 Ratio (RC12-10) or 100:1 Ratio (RC12-12), single stage design with less moving parts, for smoother and quieter operation
    • Allows for multi-positioning of the gearbox/motor

What's In the Box?

  • Anchor Winch with gearbox
  • Chainwheel suits both chain and rope
  • Dual direction solenoid (included)
  • Emergency crank/clutch release handle (included)
  • Owners Installation manual with
    • deck template,
    • wiring instructions and
    • installation instructions.

You will also need:

  • A correctly sized, circuit breaker and either two deck switches, and/or a panel up/down switch and/or deck switches.
  • I strongly recommend using the Maxwell matched rope chain kit, as it transitions smoothly from the soft splice rope to chain, and, the chain wheel (gypsy) grips this rope very well. Plus, it is best of both worlds having chain (which doesn't chafe) near the anchor, and strong 8 plait rope (which is much lighter) for the rest.

​Other Accessories:

  • Browse the "Anchor Winch Electrical Accessories" category of this website for additional optional accessories such as remote controls and anchor chain counters. 
  • Browse the  "Additional Hardware Accessories" for items  such as snubbers - (see the left hand menu).

Important: Maxwell windlasses must be used in conjunction with a chain stopper or alternative snubbing device to take the load off the windlass while laying at anchor. the chain stopper and alternative snubbing system should also be used to secure the anchor in the fully raised position while under way.
