Mechanical Steering Steering system

The mechanical steering helms are available in four models, all using a Planetary Gear Design with three satellite gears that rotate on their axis and at the same time rotate around the central helm axis. This design provides an optimum reduction ratio with a minimum of physical effort, increased efficiency and less torque feedback compared to cheaper single pinion gear helms.

No feedback helms
A special patented device allows the helm shaft to lock until turned by the driver, maintaining the boat direction and neutralizing the feedback loads on the steering cable. The mechanism is engaged when the driver applies pressure on the wheel to change direction of the boat.
