Maxwell's HRC10 windlass represents a breakthrough in performance and anchor handling, specifically designed for larger vessels up to 52 feet. It combines a modern appearance with advanced functionality, ensuring effective anchor deployment and retrieval.

Key Features

  • Rope and Chain Compatibility: Handles 5/8" rope and 3/8" chain, including rope-to-chain splices.
  • Wave Design™ Chainwheel: Enhances rope and chain handling by securing the rope more firmly and gently in a 'wave pattern' action, increasing the longevity of the anchor rode.
  • Aesthetics and Installation:
    • Design Philosophy: Aesthetically pleasing above deck design adhering to "form follows function", encapsulating the motor and drive.
    • Construction: 2-part watertight case made of die-cast, marine-grade hard anodized alloy and a removable composite motor cover.
    • Installation: Simple "bolt down" installation for quick and effortless on-deck setup.

Performance and Maintenance

  • Efficient Design:
    • Chainwheel Functionality: Unique Maxwell "wrap around"™ horizontal chainwheel utilizes over 90° of the wheel for improved handling.
    • Pressure Arm: Stainless steel arm applies maximum control pressure on the rode, enhancing security and handling.
  • Maintenance and Recovery:
    • Routine Maintenance: Easy on-deck access due to the two-piece watertight case design.
    • Emergency Features: Cone type clutch/brake mechanism allows for manual "free fall" anchoring and emergency crank recovery.
  • Durability:
    • Gearbox: Sealed oil bath with a marine-grade hard anodized alloy gearbox ensures high-efficiency output via precision worm and wormwheel.


  • Adaptability: Equally effective with all-chain rodes, providing added security and holding power for various anchoring needs.
  • Rode Management: The integral chain pipe and large through-deck hawse pipe throat facilitate easy entry and exit of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker.

This comprehensive design and advanced features make the HRC10 a robust and reliable choice for efficient anchor management on larger vessels.
