Re: Windlass on Santorin from 1995

This is a Lofrans Tigres windlass. Parts are readily available worldwide.


The buttons are an Amel add-on and are available from Amel or from Vetus.


There is an excellent tutorial from Nikimat on this forum that shows how to service the windlass.



With best regards,

Hi, another one.

I need to service my windlass and especially the up/down switches which have gone with the sun n salt.
Unfortunately I have no idea what’s the name/model of mine. It looks very similar to what I have seen on google on Nikimat. Anyone in the know... which one it is and where to get the spares in Europe or US?
