The stainless steel (AISI 316) RC10 Series rope/chain windlass is part of Maxwell’s upper mid-range line-up and is suitable for boats ranging from 9m (30ft) to 14m (48ft). The RC10 is a second-generation rope/chain windlass and is a favourite choice for cruising yachts, launches and pilothouse vessels, and light commercial operators.



The intentionally simple design yields excellent longevity and performance figures and has contributed to a well-earned reputation for reliability.



The patented Wave Design™ rope/chain gypsy (chainwheel) is able to accommodate a wide range of chain pitch differences (both imperial and metric) within the RC10’s specified chain size diameters.

Are you running all chain? No problem. The RC10 works just as effectively with all-chain rode.
