Maxwell VC Vertical Capstans

Maxwell's VC series capstans are designed for simple, low cost anchor recovery on smaller boats, and rope hauling on larger vessels. The vertical design of this series makes it suitable for smaller power or sailboats, and can be utilized for anchor rodes, as a docking capstan on larger craft, or auxiliary line hauling.

The above deck components offer a high quality finish of hard wearing chrome over marine-grade bronze. With the independent MAX-grip snag-free warping drum, this capstan offers functional rope hauling. The VC Series offers simplified through deck installation by modular design and precise alignment of gearbox to the top works utilizing marine-grade stainless steel bolts.
