Electric Winches

evo electric

A Self-Tailing Winch that works at the push of a button. That's exactly what you'll find with Lewmar's Electric Winch range. Available in sizes 40-111, our electric winches give you complete hands-free sail control on boats from 30-80 feet (9-24m) long.




  • Push Button Power
  • Quiet operation
  • Manual override
  • All the benefits of the Evo/ Oceanrange
  • Easy to install

Choice of 2 types of control:

E series electric motor including controller
The E series controller is now attached directly to the winch motor gearbox, this convenient solution removes any complicated wiring for the installer and the unit, also keeps the boat looking very tidy. A thermal trip is connected to monitor the motor temperature, which ensures a cut out if the heat builds up to an unacceptable level.
Manual operation is available as a back up, or to experience traditional sailing. This gives 2 speed manual drive, and one speed electric drive. Available on the Evo electric winch range 40, 45 & 50.
Electric winches up to the Evo 50 use the E series controller, and winches 55 and over use the Electric load sensing controller with built in overload protection.

ELS Electric load sensing 55ST 111ST
The ELS (Electric Load Sensing) Electric Winches are controlled by an Overload Protection Control Box, this allows the winch to be operated up to a high load, equivalent to the SWL (Safe Working Load) of each winch size. When this load is reached the winch automatically cuts out. If the load is reduced the winch load can be increased back up to this cut out level. Safety Overload Cut Out function was pioneered by Lewmar, and is a unique Lewmar feature. A Motor Thermal trip is connected as an extra safety feature to ensure a motor cut out, if the heat builds up to an unacceptable level.
With Lewmar electric winches, the sheet is recovered rapidly at low load when sheets are slacker, and slows down as load increases. This provides speed when you need it most, and control as you tune your sails to perfection. Manual operation facility is available as back up or to experience traditional sailing. Two + One speed comes as the standard control. It gives two-speed Manual drive (through use of the winch handle) + one-speed Electric Drive. Available on Lewmar winch sizes 55ST to 77ST. In addition Two +Two or three speed is available on Lewmar 68ST to 111ST.

Winch Handles

One Touch Winch Handle

The Lewmar OneTouch Winch Handle is a new approach to winch handle design. Its patented 'OneTouch' mechanism allows you to squeeze the releaselever (which runs the entire length of the handle) and pull to unlock in one quick, easy motion. To lock-in, simply squeeze and insert into winch. All it takes is one hand. So you can spend less time fiddling around and more time sailing.


Lite Touch Winch Handle

lite touch winch handleThe Lite Touch was developed using the latest winch handle technology providing an easy to use, lightweight yet affordable winch handle that floats.

Constructed from strong composite material for extreme rigidity, the Lite Touch features a push button locking mechanism and PowerGrip handle. The Lite Touch uses a universal bi-square designed to fit all current manufacturers' winches.

Its plunger operated locking mechanism is easily identifiable and accessible, which means no more fumbling to insert or release the handle. Just a push of the yellow button locks or releases the handle.

Lewmar's PowerGrip handle offers an easy one or two-handed operation and its bright yellow cap also makes it easily identifiable. This composite winch handle will not damage the deck if dropped and will float should it be accidentally washed overboard.

The Lite Touch is available in a 10" (250mm) standard handle length for maximum power ratio in all winches.

Lewmar Winch Handles
