The SeaStar Power Assist unit can be installed on new SeaStar steering installations or as an easy retro-fit to existing systems.
Suitable for most boat types, the SeaStar Power Assist uses an electronically controlled hydraulic pump to provide on-demand power steering.
Designed to be easily installed into the hydraulic steering circuit between the helm and. steering cylinder. An additional feature allows the Power Assist to adjust automatically to the input voltage from the boats batteries to either 12V or 24V.
The SeaStar Power Assist can be used on boats with multiple engines and rudders, multiple steering stations and autopilots. As a built in safety feature the steering system will automatically return to manual operation without any change to the number of lock-to-lock turns if power to the unit is interrupted for any reason. With the Power Assist deactivated the steering will be heavier but will allow full functionality for safe return to port.
With today‚Äôs modern engines producing high horsepower coupled with more torque, steering systems naturally become heavier when these loads are transferred to the wheel. The SeaStar Power Assist helps eliminate steering loads and provides high levels of comfort and control making boating more pleasurable.
The SeaStar Power Assist allows the boat to be driven safely and easily even in the most extreme conditions.
