The revolutionary Type R remote drive system makes selection and installation simple - one standard drive unit is suitable for all boat types, whether it's a powerboat with outboard, sterndrive or inboard steering as well as sailboats.

Optional Rudder Feedback Unit
With an autopilot installation, typically one of the most complex and time consuming aspects is fitting the rudder feedback unit and ensuring the geometry matches the full range of rudder movement.
The Type R remote drive gets around this problem with its integrated rudder feedback unit that directly mounts to the drive unit itself. The feedback unit can easily be configured to work with mainstream Autopilot electronics from all major manufacturers.
