The Lofrans Tigres is a powerful electric anchor windlass with its motor rated at 1500 Watts and a rated lifting power of 2300 lbs. It is extremely durable because it is built out of marine grade aluminum alloy designed to withstand the harsh marine environment. The Tigres is a horizontal anchor windlass which is a great option when below deck space is limited. The series-wound motor and oil lubricated gearbox are all mounted on the windlass deck, making installation extremely simple. (click on the image below for specs and price)
