    Posted: 20 May 2020 at 19:15
Hello all,

Has anyone else found they had a 24V windlass fitted on a 12v boat. I have a 341 with a windlass that has recently stopped working. Doing a bit of fault finding Iíve found the motor to have failed and more surprisingly a 24V motor fitted. The windlass is a Simpson Lawrence 900. Any advice or guidance greatly appreciated. Trying to work out if I can get a spare or if anyone else has had the same issue.

Most Hanses have fitted Danfoss compressors for their refrigerators. They are marked 12-24V, meaning that you can feed them both voltages. Maybe your shaver is marked 110-230V for the same reason.
I assume that the voltage on your boat is the standard 12V, so the guidance you need is just to buy a new 12V windlass. If the type shield says 12-24V, no harm done.
On my 400 the Lewmar 1000 pro series fitted by Hanse in 2006 is still going strong.

Have you come across this company and website.  


It looks like you have to sort out exactly which type 900 windlass you have, before you give them a call.

Thanks, yes I have, they have a 24V motor in stock but slspares and I are still baffled why a 24V windlass was fitted and I don't want to run into more issues in future.

gave you checked the actual voltage at the windlass, to have 24 volts you would need two twelve volt batteries connected in series and not in parallel, which although is unlikely is not impossible. The windlass was not a standard fitting on early Hanse, I fitted mine when Echo was three years old.

Thanks Steve, checked the voltage and 13.4V at the connections. It has really perplexed me. Ive now take the windlass apart and have confirmed the motor is complelty shot. Looks like I'm in the market for a new windlass now.
