Muir’s drum winches are the ideal anchoring solution for boats from 4 to 14 metres (13–47ft). They offer Power Up & Power Down functions, making anchoring easy and reliable. They have a larger drum capacity than any other drum winches on the market, and they fit in the same space as a standard drum winch.

Muir’s drum winches are designed and made in Australia with high quality materials and components, such as 316 Stainless Steel drums, serviceable bearing centres, and marine coated alloy housings. They also come with all the necessary accessories, such as circuit breakers, solenoids, switches, and panels, as well as simple tools and hardware for easy installation. They include fitting instructions and wiring diagrams, and they offer “tangle free” rope and chain operation.

With Muir’s drum winches, you can enjoy the convenience and safety of a compact and versatile anchoring system that does not require any electronics on the drum or in the chain locker. They are backed by a 3 year limited warranty and Muir’s reputation for excellence in the marine industry.
