Hydra's Servo Pendulum wind vane auto steer is designed to replace the helmsman under all sailing conditions for both off shore and coastal cruising - day or night, rain or shine.
The wind is free. No battery life to worry about. No noise. No hydraulics or electronics to go wrong.
The Servo Pendulum system is designed yachts between 7.5m (25ft) and 18.5m (60ft) with either a tiller or wheel steering. It can be fitted to most sailing boats but for ketch rigged yachts the wind vane may have to be dipped to clear the mizzen boom when tacking.
