Where To Buy



    • Highly Accurate

      Minor incremental adjustments provide a smooth auto-steering experience.
    • Powerful

      The maximum power output of 150KG/M provides outstanding performance even under heavy loads.
    • Lightweight

      At just 12kgs, the DD15 won't slow you down.
    • High Sensitivity

      Due to the electromechanical clutch, the direct drive can be back driven with the force of just a fingertip, which allows the mechanical steering to remain just as sensitive as without the drive unit attached.
    • Rudder Feedback

      Includes the RF300 rudder feedback unit, which contributes towards gentle yet positive and accurate auto-steering.
    • Simrad Yachting Construction

      Brutally strong and built to withstand the environment.
