Pelagic Autopilot Heavy Below Deck System (lead time currently 8 weeks)

Pelagic Autopilot Heavy Below Deck System (lead time currently 8 weeks)

Regular price $2,895.00 Sale

This system combines the Pelagic Heavy-Duty Electronics package with the Pelagic Hydraulic Linear Actuator. The actuator and rudder sensor are manufactured in the UK and are the same offered by our more expensive competition.

Suitable for boats up to 52 feet (15.5m), its integrated design provides the power and reliability of a hydraulic system without external hoses and reservoirs.

Designed for ease of installation, the unit is supplied with a quick release mount, tiller bolt (for attaching to quadrant or similar) and fitting kit. 

The unit includes the rudder reference/feedback unit that mounts directly onto the actuator.

The control head can be mounted in 4 different orientations; stern facing (the most popular and shown in the above photo), bow facing, port facing or starboard facing. This is the direction that the buttons on the control panel face. To simplify installation, we preset this at the factory but you can easily change this once onboard. When placing your order, specify your preferred orientation.

  • Control head with internal compass/gyros with controls on front panel
