The RC12 Series incorporates Maxwell’s latest stylish innovation in automatic rope/chain windlass technology. Retaining the classic open design styling more appropriate on larger boats, the RC12-10 and RC12-12 represent the next generation of rope/chain windlass evolution in every respect.

Features and benefits

  • The RC12 fully automatic windlass series is designed to effortlessly retrieve and deploy 10 mm (3/8”) short link chain and 16 mm (5/8”) to 20 mm (3/4”) three strand or 8-Plait rope (RC12-10) and 13 mm (1/2”) short link chain and 16 mm (5/8”) to 20 mm (3/4”) three strand or 8-Plait rope (RC12-12)
  • Stainless steel AISI 316
  • With a maximum pull of 1590 kg (3500 lb), and an anchor retrieval rate of 15 m/min (50ft/min), the RC12-12 is one of the fastest and gruntiest windlasses in its class
  • A sleek, Low Profile version and a fluted stainless steel (AISI 316) capstan drum version, are available
  • The all new RC12 is packed with patented innovative features combined with Maxwell’s traditionally classic aesthetics, but reflecting the modern “form follows function” of the highly successful RC6, RC8 and RC10 series windlasses
  • The elegantly designed deckplate and chainpipe cover are manufactured in polished marine-grade (AISI 316) stainless steel, as are the heavy duty pressure arm, stripper, chainwheeland fluted capstan drum
  • The huge, through deck hawse pipe throat ensures easy entry of the rope/chain rode into and out of the anchor locker
  • Double cone-type brake/clutch mechanism permits ‘Free Fall’ anchoring. Cone clutches, unlike dog clutches, provide smooth progressive engagement, ensuring safe and precise operator control
  • The RC12 features Maxwell’s revolutionary and patented new Wave Design™ chainwheel. Refer to RC6 page for more information about this innovative feature
  • Emergency manual retrieval is made simple and easy with Maxwell’s unique “Active Latch Ratchet System” operation that prevents backwind of the windlass during manual hauling of the anchor
  • The Maxwell designed, all new and innovative black, hard anodised gearbox provides numerous advantages:
    - Fast and easy windlass installation
    - More corrosion resistant
    - Easy to maintain and service
    - Takes up less room in the anchor locker
    - 75:1 Ratio (RC12-10) or 100:1 Ratio (RC12-12), single stage design with less moving parts, for smoother and quieter operation
    - Allows for multi-positioning of the gearbox/motor
