Harken Performa winches combine the high-efficiency of the Radial line with the sandblasted grip of Harken carbon-fiber racing winches for powerful hybrids. Optimized to handle the high-strength line used on sportboats and performance cruisers, Performa winches are a great solution for crew who don’t wish to invest in carbon winches or who need racing winches in smaller sizes. Winches come in self-tailing, plain-top, or Quattro styles.

All Performa™ winches feature sandblasted drums optimized for halyard and sheeting applications using small-diameter, high-tech line. Use plain-top winches on sportboats where sails require frequent trimming. Plain-top winches are best handled by two crew—one to trim and one to tail the line.

The Performa Range has size suitable for halyard and sheet winches on most racers and racer-cruisers.
