Type RS - Octopus Remote Sailboat Drive System

The Octopus Remote Sailboat Drive System makes it easy and economical to install an automatic pilot on light displacement Sail Boats steered with a mechanical system from a wheel or tiller. The system is designed for the modern mid range sail boat which has restricted space to mount a standard Linear drive. The drive is very responsive and has little feedback resistance when in ‘Stand by’ mode making it very suitable for racing yachts.

Recommended for Yachts up to 38Ft (11.5m) with a maximum displacement of 15400 Ibs / 7000 Kg.

Everything You Need in the Box!

Purchasing is easy with the RS Sailboat Drive Autopilot Pack, everything needed for installation is supplied in one box including steering cable and installation kit. 

The drive unit Can be mounted either horizontal or vertically in any convenient location. The steering cable length is determined by the relative position of the drive unit to the linear drive connection kit.

Integrated Rudder Feedback Unit
With an inboard pilot 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 RS 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.
