Manual Operation

The Storm series offers two manual operation alternatives. The Manual Override System (MORS) is a premium option on most other models, and provides manual retrieval of the rope and chain or chain only rode by simply applying a standard sheet winch handle to the top of the windlass. The Manual Operating System (MOS) features a gypsy attachment that fits into the top of the gypsy once the capstan or clutch top has been removed. MOS is standard on most Storm models.

Fast Retrieval

Using the latest in efficient windlass drives, the Storm series provides effective and rapid anchor retrieval with high speeds of up to 25 metres per minute on some models, whilst also allowing smooth deployment of the anchor rode and chain.

Reduced Installation Time

Storm windlass bases accommodate a quick fit adaptor that reduces installation time allowing the gearbox and motor to be installed directly onto the shaft in any radial position and alleviating distortion between the deck plate and gearbox flange. A sealed shaft protects the transmission below deck.

Rope-Chain Combination

The Rope Chain Management System (RCMS) on Storm windlasses consists of a spring loaded finger & 180 degree stripper arrangement that provides smooth transition for rope-chain combination.


Automatic Freefall Storm models provide rapid freefall and total control when anchoring, all with a switch’s flick. There is a Storm model to suit every application, available with DC power options and for vessels up to 9m (29ft). Unique swivel integrated chain pipes ensure access to your anchor rode, and with a complete range of accessories to suit, anchoring doesn’t get any easier!
