The Facts About Savwinch

We are a family owned Australian business that has been selling drum winches for over a decade. We are very particular about every aspect of our business, everything from motor designs to our in-house operations. We’re always working to improve our products and practices. Read below about some of the reasoning behind our key operational decisions.

Savwinch is a family owned Australian business that has been manufacturing drum anchor winches for over a decade. During this time we have supplied our anchor winches to boat owners around the world through our extensive dealer network, as well as boat builders worldwide which total over 40 at last count. Since our humble beginnings we have strived to improve our anchor winches with innovative design changes and features a long the way. This will continue long into the future.

Motor Design

Our motors are designed and engineered in-house specifically to be used on a drum anchor winch in a marine environment. Our 316 stainless motor casings are milled down from a single casting, not an off the shelf item with a sticker, cover or sleeve over the top. Our motors also feature injection moulded plastic sections which are used to fill any cavities inside.  This unique and patented feature prevents moisture from getting in and corroding the motor from the inside out. Our motors are also O-ring sealed with an IP68 rating. There are also no exposed terminals which would otherwise be major points of corrosion.  We have gone to great lengths to ensure that no water/condensation can get inside our electric motors, which is the biggest cause of failure in anchor winch motors.

Our Ethics

Savwinch endeavours to operate with high standards of corporate conduct. We conduct our business with integrity and in an ethical manner. Our team shares the same core values of integrity, teamwork and excellence. Customers are of the utmost importance to us and we value them by continually asking for their feedback and opinions. We are constantly developing and offering excellent quality products and the latest innovations making us market leaders. We back that up with excellent customer support. Savwinch also supports local community groups and charities. We also work with the Boating Industry Association of Victoria to meet its strategic goals and help achieve great outcomes for all boaters.
