Octopus Mechanical Remote Drives - System Packs

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.
Everything you need in the box!

Now Octopus have made things even easier with the introduction of the new Remote Drive Autopilot Packs - everything you need to install the drive is supplied in one box including steering cable and installation kit.  To specify, simply choose the appropriate engine type and steering system from the diagram below.

Part Number Drive System Engine / Max Displacement
MDRESYS-A Sterndrive Mercruiser 1994+ / Volvo Gasoline
MDRESYS-B Sterndrive Mercruiser '83-'93 / Volvo Diesel
MDRESYS-C Outboard Yamaha 70hp+
MDRESYS-D Outboard Mercury, Mariner, Suzuki
MDRESYS-E Inboard/Sail 13,200lbs (6t), 32ft, (9.75m)

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.
