HyDrive Systems are available for boats ranging in size from 10m to larger vessels 100m and over.
HyDrive manufactures power-steering systems to suit boats of all types and sizes ranging from smaller powerboats to vessels which have rudder torques of up to 10 tonne/metre:
- 12VDC power steering to suit any brand or horsepower outboard or medium range inboard.
- Custom-made systems for larger vessels 15m and over
Your choice of power steering is determined by rudder load, which is calculated by overall rudder size and whether the rudder is balanced or unbalanced.
We recommend that you complete the Steering Selection Form, including rudder dimensions, and we will assist you in selecting the most suitable power steering system for your boat.
