The Prince Series DP3 700W is a lightweight yet strong vertical anchor winch with an AISI 316-grade stainless steel base, IP67-rated motor, gypsy and chain inspection lid & an anodised aluminum lower gearbox.
Recommended Boat Size: 7 - 12 metres (23 - 40ft)
Suitable for boats from 10m - 14m (33-46ft).
The Quick Prince DP3 is a vertical application windlass, perfect for boats with limited deck space, with its motor and gearbox installed inside your vessel's anchor well/storage locker.
The DP3 is available with or without drum capstan for rope retrieval. It is equipped with an emergency manual lift system so you can conveniently retrieve your anchor during instances when you may lose batter power on your boat.
The gypsy supplied with the DP3 can support anchor rode with both calibrated short link chain and spliced 3-strand rope. This is due to the special notching fitted internally, which allows the rope to slide easily.
Designed and manufactured in Italy, the Prince series winches are composed of AISI 316-grade stainless steel with a watertight motor, anodized aluminium gearbox, and an easy-open inspection lid, making it a state-of-the-art vertical anchor winch.
Sold complete with the windlass, solenoid unit, clutch handle and mounting hardware.

Why choose a Quick Anchor Winch?
Quick windlasses are equipped (as standard) with exclusive solutions and devices to ensure safety and functionality in all conditions. Each component has been designed in the company’s Italian engineering laboratories. The wide range of equipment for all kinds of mechanical processing enables Quick to obtain high-quality and directly-controlled products.
Do I need a drum capstan for rope retrieval?
The drum is an additional tool which some sailors use for other tasks like hauling rope for sails, dinghies, or craypots (for example). Quick’s vertical winches do not need a drum to haul the anchor up or down because the gypsy does that. Therefore, unless you have a specific use for a drum (like the previous examples), you probably do not need one.
How do I calculate what motor power I need?
Please see the table above for the factors to consider when selecting which motor power would best suit your vessel, anchor and anchor rode combination.
Manual Free-Fall Device:
This allows the manual release of the gypsy clutch, resulting in the chain falling faster.
Flexible motor and gearbox installation:
Vertical windlasses have been specially designed with installation flexibility in mind. The flange allows for the gearbox to be installed in any direction without hindering the fall of the chain into the anchor well/storage locker.
Protection from Water:
The motor includes a flexible PVC gasket which should be installed on the flange of the below-deck gearbox. This gasket is well suited to any surface and effectively protects the gearbox against water infiltration without further intervention being required.
The casing is made of composite material, with gaskets and sealed cable outlets for electric cables. As well as preventing infiltration of water or other liquids, it also delivers high impact resistance and ease of installation.
Metals used in the Base:
