Rekord Marine Announces a Great New Winch for Performance Sailors

Ronstan Orbit Winch 400

June 6, 2023

Ronstan’s Orbit Winches™ are the new benchmark in high performance alloy winches. With a combination of fresh design thinking and proven manufacturing expertise, Orbit Winches™ weigh significantly less and offer lower line entry heights than any other winch in their class. Remarkably easy to service, they require no tools for disassembly or maintenance. The machined aluminium drums feature the same Power Ribs™ that many sailors will recognize from Andersen Stainless Steel Winches®, well-known for their impressive line grip, smooth control and minimal rope wear.

Orbit Winches™ sizes 30QT and 40QT are equipped with the unique, patented QuickTrim™ self-tailer.

What is QuickTrim™?

QuickTrim™ allows sailors to conveniently and safely ease the line without removing the winch handle or taking the line out of the self-tailer. 

A small anti-clockwise rotation of the self-tailing cover allows the self-tailer to turn beneath it like a sheave as the rope is eased, with confident grip and control assured by the drum’s smooth surface and Power Ribs™. 

Letting the top cover spring back into place locks the self-tailer again to resume normal use. 

How QuickTrim™? Works
