Compliments to Team New Zealand Winner of the XXXV America's cup..... 

Cariboni knows the importance of lightness on marine equipment: this feature is more important when you need to place something on the bow of your boat. In order to offer to race cruiser sailing yacht an automatic and lightweight anchor stowing system, Cariboni has designed a compact and full water proof product: the new AAS_088 and AAS_140.
The idea is simply but clever: helicoidal screw, driven by a hydraulic engine, acts on a gearbox to move the anchor arm in and out on the bow.
Two models are designed to work in accordance of torque moment required by anchor and anchor arm. These two models are made on lightweight black hard coated aluminium body, 17-4PH stainless steel and bronze gears: the high torque hydraulic engine has a water proof cover in order protect it from marine corrosion.
When the available room is so tight and there's a need to turn round the forestay when moving the anchor arm, Cariboni offers on his bigger model AAS_140 an additional feature to improve a lateral movement of the system when stowing in and out.
