E40i electric winch from Seldén Mast

Expanding its deck hardware offering, Seldén Mast’s new E40i electric winch is ideal for single or shorthanded sailing.

The dynamic new winch offers:

  • three-speeds
  • two finger operation from the helm; one to start the winch and one to switch speeds.


Seldén’s lateset labour-saving sailing must-have is built around an electric motor which is totally integrated into the drum, leaving just three thin cables protruding.

With no external motor or gearbox, the E40i’s innovative design means the large cut-out in the deck or coach roof, usually associated with electric winch installation, is no longer required. E40i is ideal for operating halyards, furling lines and sheets led to the coach roof.

The self-contained nature of the E40i winch makes for simple self-installation and full instructions are provided. Alternatively, professional installation can easily be arranged through a Seldén dealer.

The E40i is available with a black anodized aluminium drum or a stainless-steel drum.

A Power Supply System (PSU) converting 12V/24V to 42V is also required, but boats fitted with a Seldén electric Furlex may already have one installed.
