Introducing the new Maxwell retractable vertical capstan

Introducing the new Maxwell retractable vertical capstan

Superyacht sailboat and motor yacht owners have long desired a robust capstan that is capable of being
retracted, when not in use, in order to provide an uncluttered deck area; whether it be located on the
foredeck or installed in the mid ship and/or stern areas of a vessel.
Maxwell has developed an inspired solution which allows for a retractable unit every bit as functional and strong as a non-retractable capstan.
The entire Maxwell Retractable Vertical Capstan (RVC) has been designed not only for superb functionality,
but with the aim that aesthetics aboard any Superyacht are also paramount.
The top of the capstan drum is pleasing to the eye and has been patterned to provide a non-skid surface when flush with the deck, in
the fully “DOWN” position.
Operation of the Maxwell RVC, which performs above the exacting performance criteria of the conventional
Maxwell VC4000 capstan, is as simple and straightforward as any conventional capstan.
Adjustment and maintenance of the RVC is equally simple, utilising a basic tool kit with minimal disassembly of the unit.
