New WINDPILOT Emergency Rudder

Postby Nick » Fri Nov 30, 2007 9:10 pm


Facing the increasing number of rudder failures on modern sailing boats Windpilot has now added an emergency rudder to the Windpilot range to help those who do not have an auxiliary rudder on their boat.

The Windpilot SOS emergency rudder is ideal both for boats that already use a Windpilot Pacific unit and for those that have no windvane system but still want the peace of mind that comes with an emergency rudder.

Thanks to our vast global database, which contains details of just about every sailing yacht ever to enter series production, Windpilot can supply a suitable, custom-prepared system for any boat.

The development of the SOS emergency rudder was the logical next step in the evolution of the Windpilot product range, which now comprises

- servo-pendulum self-steering systems,
- double rudder systems and
- emergency rudder systems

all manufactured under the company¹s flexible modular concept. The benefits for customers worldwide are as simple as they are invaluable: perfectly matched systems that are astonishingly easy to install!

Please get a pictures as enclosure. Further details are available on

Please do not hesitate to contact me in case you need additional info.... I am always just a mouseclick away.
