FOR SALE: Lofrans Progress 2 Windlass Motor 1200W 12V

Almost brand new Lofrans 1200W 12V windlass motor for a Progress II Windlass (Part 418a #LWP8251). It may also fit other older Lofrans models (uses a 3 point bolt on configuration).

It has only been in use for 3 months. We installed it because we thought it would help with a breaker tripping issue. It didn't because the actual problem was a corroded bearing. Unfortunately we weren't able to replace the bearing as the rope drum and lock-nut had seized up on the shaft and the windlass had to be sawed in half to remove it from the boat. So we bought a new windlass and you can get a bargain on an almost new motor!

We are currently in Darwin, Australia. We can ship it, but it's a heavy little beast and will probably be expensive. We will also be cruising Indonesia and Southeast Asia in the next 12 months, so we could meet up if we're in the same area.

The cost of a new motor from Lofrans is $1150 US not including shipping. We're asking $700 US.
