Pelagic Autopilot Ssytem for Heavy Tiller Steered Vessels

Pelagic Autopilot System for Heavy Tiller Steered Vessels (lead time currently 3 weeks)

Regular price $1,495.00 Sale

This system combines the Pelagic Heavy Duty Electronics package with a 3,200N, ruggedized 12V actuator to handle heavier, tiller steered vessels.

In use by offshore sailors 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 based system processes data on the vessel's pitch, roll and yaw 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 the chartplotter gives out.

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

The Pelagic system is trusted by offshore sailors around the world. Install one on your boat for better performance and safety.
