For Yachts up to 39ft - Simrad Tillerpilots are designed for high precision, reliable auto-steering while drawing low current to optimize battery life
High performance for small to mid range sailboats Simrad Tillerpilots are designed for high precision, reliable auto-steering while drawing low current to optimize battery life. The hard wearing, waterproof body contains all controls and has been tested for many hours in total immersion. Exceptionally quiet in use, the Tillerpilot gives fast and positive performance for effective steering in a wide range of sea states and wind conditions. A range of pilots offers performance to suit most small to medium sailboats.
The Sirmad TP22 and Simrad TP32 Tillerpilots offer easy interfacing to external devices using Simrad's proprietary network system, SimNet. When interfaced, enhanced options such as sail to wind or sail to waypoint are easily accessed via the key pad. The recommendations assume typical coastal sailing conditions and in circumstances where extended voyages or more extreme weather conditions are expected, the choice of a higher specification pilot is recommended including the full range of Simrad below deck pilots.
