Giga winches for gigayachts Harken
Boats are becoming bigger and bigger, and tensions are phenomenal.
Winch manufacturers are therefore confronted with a real technical challenge. Harken has just announced a new generation of captive winches for giga-yachts (over 80 meters). The captive winches, initially designed for loads of 1.5 to 25 tonnes have had their capacity tripled! The bench tests (impressive – see photo) of hydraulic and electric prototypes at 70 tonnes have just been completed at Harken, opening the way to hitherto inconceivable standards.
