Autopilot for Tiller Steering - Complete Kit (lead time is currently 5 weeks)

Regular price $875.00 Sale

In use by offshore cruisers and racers around the world, the Pelagic Autopilot is a sophisticated, yet simple standalone system designed to perform in a variety of conditions.


Our state of the art 9 axis gyro autopilot processes the vessel's roll, pitch, and yaw data to monitor and predict boat movement in any sea state, whether surfing downwind or beating against the trades. Its internal compass is independent of other onboard systems, allowing the autopilot to keep you on course long after your chartplotter gives out.


If you want to sail the highest course or maintain sheeting angles despite compass headings, the Pelagic system can incorporate your NMEA 0183  apparent wind data as well. NMEA 2K requires a converter, like an Actisense NGW-1.

The Pelagic system is trusted by offshore sailors around the world, install one on your boat today for better performance and safety at sea.

What is included:

- Control head unit with internal compass and controls on front panel

- Motor drive electronics unit 

- Deck mounted brass sleeve bearing and stainless pin for connecting to the  tiller. 

- A watertight deck mounted Bulgin connector and cover to pass drive signals to the actuator.


Available Options Include:

- Wireless remote control 

- Actuator parts kit. This is a back up actuator that can be used for spares or converted to an operational actuator by attaching it to the actuator mounting bracket and Bulgin connector. 

- Actuator extension kit.

- Fabric covers for actuator and control head



– Data from nine MEMS sensors monitor the vessel's attitude and is used to adjust course and compensate for roll, pitch, and yaw.

– Flexible drive electronics allows operation with existing wheel, below deck 

– NMEA 0183 data can be monitored to enable wind direction steering.

– A simple user interface is implemented in a watertight control head. Dimmable  LEDs indicate status.
