The makers of the original eWincher – a rechargeable electric winch handle – have just improved upon their original offering with the new eWincher 2, with 20% more power. These are interesting alternatives to mega-expensive power winches, and have many more benefits other than cost. The eWincher is lightweight and fits into your original winches just like your existing winch handles, but offers full power options as well as power-assist, and can be repositioned just as easily for mainsail operation, headsails, halyards and furlers – giving your entire boat the benefit of power winches with less than the cost of one.
All of the controls are located on the handgrip. You can use the assisted or non-assisted mode, or both at once, to ensure maximum precision all while maintaining the feeling of winching. You can use the Ewincher 2 as a manual handle at any time. It’s always in the ideal position to limit your effort.
The removable, rechargeable battery lasts a long time, enough for a day sailing and charges at 12V DC or 110/220V in just 1.5 hours. Supplied with winch handle pocket, security leash, chargers and carry case.
Available for about $2,000 USD.
