The VW 1000 series is designed for automatic handling of chain-only anchor rodes while offering an independent capstan for the retrieval of a secondary rope and/or chain rode, or to assist with docking procedures.
The VW 1000 series is a classic style windlass with a chain-only gypsy that can be mounted vertically or horizontally (as there is no chain pipe to prevent horizontal mounting).
