Lewmar’s new winch line, EVO, will be unveiled to the trade at METS (Marine Equipment Trade Show) this November.

Still built on the standard Lewmar winch platform, EVO features new styling, easier installation, new sizes and new finishes.

The new range comprises seven self-tailing winches: size 15, 30, 40, 45, 50, 55, 65, available in single speed (size 15 only) and two speed combinations. Electric versions of the winch are offered from size 40. Conversion kits and pre-wired motor gearboxes are available to adapt the manual winch to powered on size 40 up to 65.

The keys to the new design is the self-tailer is sleeker, the drum is grippier and they’re very easy to service by the boat owner – without any special tools.  They come in black, grey or chrome and even include an arrow so non-boaters know which way to load up the line. 

The EVO line comes in standard or electric versions or can be retrofitted with a motor later and they can be mounted with Lewmar’s existing Fast Fit studs.  EVO winches come with a 7-year warranty.
