Muir have been busy in recent times assessing their current anchor windlass range to ensure that they are meeting the current market expectations, and as a result of this review there have been some exciting new winches developed and improved.

1) The Atlantic 2500,3500 and 4000 chrome bronze range have had some developmental improvements and are now offered in 316 stainless steel (as an addition to the current STORM range) which makes them more harder wearing and better looking than previous.

2) Muir have recently launched a new horizontal H900 'EASYWEIGH' windlass which has a stainless steel housing, simple installation, rope/chain capability and is a compact anchoring system to suit boats from 6m to 11m at a very competitive price.

3) The VC800 inline capstan has been further developed and is now better than before but more importantly, Muir are able to bring it to the market for a better price. This is an ideal capstan for recreational fisherman.

4) Muir have also been further developing their small to medium sized mega yacht range to include more 316 stainless steel components. Through development and better procurement, Muir are able to offer a lighter, stronger stainless steel product for the equivalent price (or better) than its previous chrome bronze range. This is a MAJOR development which should see Muir more competitive in the production and semi production market for mega yachts from 25m to 50m.

5) Muir have also developed a 'Quick Fit' Adaptor for some of their vertical pleasure winch range so that the installation can be undertaken more easily and in less time. This fits between the base and the motor/gearbox and simply fits with a 'PUSH' and then a Cir clip is fitted as a safety measure. Muir manufactures anchoring and mooring systems for smaller pleasure craft between 10 and 28 metres, and for mega yachts and work boats between 30 and 120 metres.

Muir exports to more than 40 countries.

'We need to be constantly developing new products and improving our existing products to stay competitive with current and new players,' said Matthew Johnston, Managing Director. 'Research and development is important. In fact we have a long standing commitment to product research and development and will continue to invest in the development of new technology to deliver further improvements in quality.

'We are manufacturing much more of our products in stainless steel today. We also have a strong commitment to customer service, communication and rigid quality control – all things I believe we do extremely well at Muir’s.

'In addition, we are passionate about our customers, with an innovative and flexible approach to design and manufacturing. But there is no room for complacency,' he added.

The company still employs around 50 people in the Hobart head office, manufacturing and design centre in Hobart, Its warehousing and sales facilities in Sydney and on the Gold Coast in Australia, Florida in the United States and Southampton in the United Kingdom.

'In addition to the developments in our pleasure range Muir continue to review and update their 'custom' built mega yacht equipment. With motor and sail yachts continuing to get bigger by the year Muir are developing anchoring and mooring equipment purposely for yachts up to 120 metres overall.'

Large yacht equipment is mainly polished 316L stainless steel and the demand today is mainly for 'vertical' style windlasses and capstans, and to less degree 'horizontal' style windlasses however Muir work closely with the relevant parties to ensure the best solution is achieved.
