AutoAnchor is a division of Kiwi Yachting, a New Zealand company that has been providing the marine industry with quality products since 1988. AutoAnchor was recently purchased from RMSD, an innovative electronic and software control solutions developer.

The original AutoAnchor was designed over 20 years ago and AutoAnchor chain counters (rode counters) and windlass controllers are now found on yachts and launches worldwide. Our experience in design, combined with our quality control systems ensure that AutoAnchor products are exceptionally robust and reliable. Compatible with any windlass, AutoAnchors are the specified rode counters for Maxwell, Muir and Lewmar windlasses.

Whatever your requirements there will be an AutoAnchor suitable for you. From a 60mm (2.36”) panel mount counter to a black box module that integrates with the on board computer. Plus, of course, the original AutoAnchor 500 Series and our AA710 radio remote control with the one-touch automatic function to control the windlass and deploy or retrieve a preset length of rode. The AA710 can also be used to control a thruster and other marine equipment.

Our latest products include the AA300 series hand held remote control products suitable for a range of marine equipment including windlasses, thrusters, davits, lights, pumps and transom doors.

The latest AutoAnchors accurately count rope/chain or all-chain anchor rode.

Designed and manufactured in New Zealand where boating and anchoring is a way of life. AutoAnchor.
