The first thing we look for in a winch is reliability, Pontos has achieved that. Then comes performance, in other words, how much can a winch contribute to the boat's performance. Clearly, based on our recent racing experiences, we can confirm that Pontos's four speed winches make a big difference. A definite plus. All the guys who have sailed with me are unanimous about Pontos : They're great!

"Without any preparation at all I was given the task of trimming the genoa and it was magic. I turned the winch handle with my fingertips, literally. There was 20 knots of wind and I was able, quite easily, to react efficiently without any particular effort. There is a sense of ease which is totally unique".
FIRST 35 (ARCACHON)
Very pleased with the TRIMMER winches on my SunRise 34, especially when I'm with my wife, it has changed my life!
Pontos has reinvented winch technology, working on new ideas in areas that we thought were definitive, but never quite are.
Pontos has come up with a real innovation. We have the same philosophy when working for the America’s Cup.
I believe Pontos has genuinely gone one step further, bringing simplicity and ease of use,
corresponding exactly to the size and specificity of my multihull.
