One of the UK's leading deck hardware manufacturers, Barton Marine has purchased the tooling and distribution rights for the Wincher.

This well established product has become a popular piece of equipment onboard many sailing boats. The Wincher is a specially designed rubber moulding that converts the standard winch to a self tailing winch, so that when the line is sheeted under load the coils climb up the drum and are then gripped by the underside of the rubber body. When the sail is trimmed, cleating is achieved simply by locking the line into the ribbed groove of the Wincher.

"We have been a supplier for the Wincher for a number of years as we feel the product is synonymous with the Barton brand - it offers a quality solution for use onboard sailing boats at a cost effective price," says Paul Botterill, Director, Barton Marine.

Barton Marine supplies the Wincher worldwide via its distribution network. Please visit for further information.
