Imagine.. winches for mooring operated by wireless remote-control unit, enabling a single watch keeper to select and check each line in turn and to trim as necessary. Sounds good right? Get to know our winches for mooring applications.
Two crew members, each with a control unit, can split the responsibilities for faster adjustment if preferred. Loads on all the winch sheaves are monitored and integrated with the ship’s AMS system. The system’s load capacities fulfil well established Classification requirements.
Operating almost entirely hands-free, it substantially reduces crew safety risks, is cleaner and more precise to operate. No cleating is required. When trimming the mooring line no manual line handling needed, and possible on a safe position.
With the Rondal winches for mooring we supply a complete mooring system that we can integrate together with yachtbuilders. We always look at the most efficient way of line running on board. Whether you need electric or hydraulic winches, we push the boundaries for the best possible solution.
In addition to the all-important issues of safety and functionality, the low-profile, below-decks installation of captive reel winches meets every owner’s desire to de-clutter and ‘de-industrialise’ the deck spaces of an otherwise impeccably designed private superyacht.
