Pontos designs, patents and products have been acquired by Karver, a respected French marine manufacturing company renowned for developing high-end products such as headsail furlers used on top short-handed ocean racing boats.
Some minor design improvements have been made, and manufacturing of 4-speed and 2-speed winches is re-commencing in the same factory as before. The full range of Pontos designs will be available again in the New Year, with re-branded Grinder, Trimmer and Compact models of all sizes.
Karver will re-launch the brand later in the autumn, so look for further announcements and information in the yachting press.
In the meantime there is good availability of Pontos Grinder 40s and Grinder 52s. Please contact us for prices.
