Product Overview

Fully automatic SMART TABS SX deliver unequaled performance and durability with no maintenance in fresh or salt water. 

The SMART TABS SX series incorporates the fully automatic features of original SMART TABS with the rust and corrosion free benefits of molded composite materials. The system uses a nitrogen gas actuator that reacts to water pressure, boat speed and payload without the need for expensive hydraulic or electric equipment. Tracking ribs have been added to improve handling at higher speeds.

The maintenance-free construction of SMART TABS SX combines thermo-molded copolymer composite material with nylon T6/6. This material absorbs water and becomes more rugged over time, providing superior strength and resilience to any rough water situation. Installation is simple, and the plates include five (5) actuator mounting positions for further customization.

Select Smart Tabs SX trim tabs according to your boat's size, engine type and horsepower. For help, see the Nauticus Trim Tab Selector.
