Lofrans Royal LW 250, Horizontal Manual Anchor Windlass, Rope Drum / Chain Gypsy
The Lofrans Royal LW 250, Horizontal Manual Anchor Windlass works great on smaller (26' - 35') boats that don't have electrical systems for a power anchor windlass. The Royal LW 250 Horizontal Windlass operates manually with an included handle and has separate rope capstan and chain-wheel. The Royal is easy to install and features smooth, double action operation to make anchoring a quick and simple task.

Manual windlasses make the best sense in some circumstances. Electrical limitations, infrequent anchoring & wise budgeting can make this choice a significant upgrade from the back-breaking, if traditional, hand-over-hand method of recovering ground tackle or over large powered units.
