The SeaStar Power Assist steering unit has been designed specifically for use with manual hydraulic steering systems that have heavy or high
torque loads. It uses an electronically controlled hydraulic pump that fits in-line near the hydraulic cylinder and boosts the fluid being sent from the
helm pump to the steering cylinder. This results in less effort required at the wheel, particularly when under loads. Significantly less complicated/costly than installing mechanical engine driven power steering, the power assist unit is ideal for a wide variety of high torque
applications including all outboard engine applications (particularly large four stroke engines with large prop diameters), stern drive installations and some inboard applications.
