  • I am writing… to congratulate and thank you most sincerely for the outstanding customer service and your commitment to maintain the highest standards in product quality.

    (We) have been happily using your anchor for many years now and your most recent assistance during the servicing and upgrading of our three units has further reinforced our confidence in your products and respect for your people.

    Peter Bailey and Steve Johnson
  • I have sworn by this winch thus far and it was a must have unit on my vessel.

    Alex Tindall
  • The good people at Streaker Boats had one of your winches fitted to their boats on display at the Melbourne Boat Show, and I was impressed. I will be recommending Stressfree.

    Graham Simester
  • I chose a Stressfree from my knowledge of other competitor’s products from working in the boating industry, but also after much research on the internet and several boat shows to look at comparisons.  I am extremely happy with my new winch and would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing one, to speak to the team at Stressfree.  They build a great Aussie product that is better than the rest!! Support great Australians.

    Phil Dudley
  • When making the decision to purchase an anchor winch I had choice. The quality and performance is exceptional. For the past 4 years our Stressfree winch has been totally stress-free. It has never missed a beat and made anchor retrieval so easy.

    When I renew my boat in about 12 months’ time I will not consider any other product when it comes to boat winches. Great product, great backup service. Thanks to you and your team. Now time to go fishing ….

    Jim Tanner
  • No wonder Stressfree is number one in your field, when you can provide backup service like you have.

    Graeme McKinnell
  • I recently purchased a Stressfree NG Series Freefall anchor winch on my Northbank boat, and would like to express my congratulations for the professional and expert advice received from all your staff.

    The user handbook along with the labelling of the wiring loom made installation so easy. I would not hesitate to recommend Stressfree to anyone seeking to buy an anchor winch.

    Tony Gepp
  • Congratulations and many thanks to the team at Stressfree for a great product but equally for their fantastic after sales support!

    Phil Dudley
  • The winch works a treat. I would not hesitate recommending a Stressfree winch to anyone looking to replace or fitting on a new boat. I have the same winch on one of my other boats and will possible look  at re-building my old winch to fit to another boat I own.

    Darren Smedley
  • You guys are the BEST – always give 100% – great Aussie service – pity more businesses didn’t have the same ethics.

    Jose Legge
  • Thank you so much. The support offered over the phone (on Christmas Day!) allowed us to problem solve quickly, identify the problem and repair. I hope you share this because we will relay this sentiment to our friends and members of the fishing club regarding your friendliness, professionalism and fantastic customer support.
