Rope Capstans

Maxwell Vertical capstans are born of innovation and backed by years of experience in the manufacture of the worlds highest quality anchor windlasses, ancillary deck gear and stern handling products. Maxwell’s vertical capstan range is not only attractive and functional, but takes up minimal space above deck. Only the capstan is mounted above deck, whilst the motor and gearbox are mounted below.  Maxwell’s unique “Max-grip” snag free warping drum ensures positive rope control from any direction. Maxwell offers a range of vertical capstans that can be used for simply low cost anchoring on smaller boats or rope hauling on larger vessels.


The extremely versatile ANCHORMAX rope capstan can be used as an anchor winch, pot hauler or davit winch. This compact, high power to weight ratio, capstan is easy to install and offers exceptional value for money.
