Karver’s Pontos Winch range

Following the acquisition of Pontos Winches in February 2018, Karver Systems says it is finalising the ‘Karverisation’ of the Pontos line with an improved winch range aimed at both regatta and pleasure boaters. Few details are currently available, but the improvements made will have an impact on prices and technical characteristics, says Karver.

Pontos winches are based on epicyclic gear trains associated with automatic load detection technology. Depending on the choice of model, this approach is said to offer either three times more power or six times more speed compared to all other winches on the market, claims the company. Karver says the new range will be presented in November at the METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam.
