Ewincher electric winch handle

Product overview

LogoWith the Ewincher, you don't change anything about the way you sail and you can perform one maneuver after another, regardless of your physical condition, your age or your strength.


Ewincher can be used straight away, without mounting anything, on all winches of the sailboat. It can also be used as a safety device in case of failure of the windlass to lift the anchor or to lift the dinghy.

Details

With its 3 modes of operation, Ewincher is your new crewmember that assists you with all your maneuvers on your sailboat:

  • In assisted mode: Ewincher does the work for you in the winch's 1st or 2nd speed
  • In manual mode: you can use Ewincher like any other winch handle to make adjustments
  • Combined mode: add your own speed to the one of the handle to reach exceptional hauling speeds

Ewincher's extreme power and adjustable speed allow you to perform all possible maneuvers while sailing: hoisting, sheeting, adjusting sails, furling your genoa or even hauling a crewmember up the mast.

  • Genuine winch handle - 2.2kg
  • Brushless engine
  • Manual or assisted mode
  • 15 to 80 revolutions per minute
  • Torque of 80Nm: Ewincher is equipped with an adjustable torque from 10kg to 32kg of traction on the handle, it allows manoeuvring sailing boats up to 55 feet without damaging anything. As you hold it like a regular winch handle you will feel immediately if there is a blockage in the lines, any problem. This is something you don't have with electric winches: you press the button and if something is wrong and you are not careful enough, the electric winch will keep on working and can damage the sails or boat.
  • Waterproof and locking system
  • Long-lasting battery life: Ewincher offers a great autonomy thanks to its Lithium Ion battery: more than a day of sailing with only one charge. Charging time takes about 1½ hours and consumes 7Ah (1.7% of a 400Ah battery bank) It is a high efficiency Lithium-ion 25v battery 3000mA.On a 40ft boat that means you can in one day: Hoist the mainsail 3 times, put in 30 tacks and put an 85kg man up the mast (15m lift).
An optional extra battery is available if desired.
Ewincher includes the unit, one battery, the charger, a lanyard, a winch handle pocket for the cockpit, and carry case. It comes with 2 years warranty.

It is a very impressive piece of kit.
Andy We have been using the ewincher for a couple of weeks.
We don't use it all the time so the battery seems to last for ever. Our mainsail has never gone up so fast and fine adjustments are very controllable. You have to get used to the kick when the load comes on. It is a very impressive piece of kit.
If money were no object fitting electric winches would be the answer, but for a relatively cost effective solution the ewincher is definitely the answer.
Frankly you should sell lots of them.
Douglas Review by Douglas N-J / (Posted on 11/06/2019)
The operation seems intuitive and there is no kick back or snatching to alarm one.
We bought the ewincher following a change in boat where we went from 27’ to 34’ with a consequent increase in sail area.
We are both 69 and whilst hoisting the main had always been manageable on our old boat on the new one it had become a challenge!
Electric winches were not practical with insufficient space to accommodate the motors and were prohibitive on cost grounds. Other electric solutions seemed crude and dangerous such as harnessing a powerful electric drill or rather basic in the case of the only other electric handle we could identify.
The specification for the ewincher seemed to be tailor made to our requirements and comments in Top Tips Tuesday’s newsletter tips bore this out. We have not yet used the handle in anger whilst sailing but it has proved its worth in fitting out making easy work of hoisting the genoa up its track and the main up the mast. The main is fully battened and is a considerable weight of sail to lift by hand.
The operation seems intuitive and there is no kick back or snatching to alarm one. Cannot comment on battery life yet but charging from the mains is straightforward. No experience yet of 12v charging.
We are looking forward to trying it out for real shortly as we plan to start our summer cruise next week and I would be happy to comment further after that if it helps.
Regards

Dear Andy
It does exactly what is on the box. A very good bit kit. No problem recommending this powered winch handle.
