- Watertight stainless steel ball bearings in the base for maintenance-free top performance functionality.
- Clutch consisting of two conical discs, fitted on to the main shaft by two flat parallel planes on the shaft, thus avoiding the use of keys and spreading the load on a wider surface.
- Models X1, X2 and X3 have a Gypsy designed to manage both rope and chain
- Independent drum rotation from Gypsy, for warping operation.
- Manual override, enabling the windlass to recover the chain and anchor in the event of electrical failure. The manual override mechanism is within the gearbox, made up by a spring loaded ratchet, whose secondary function is to provide a safety mechanism so that chain jams do not damage the deck.
