Dometic have launched electric steering technology specifically engineered for inboard-powered boats popular for skiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing and other water sports activities, with the new product making its European boating industry debut during the 2022 METSTRADE show in Amsterdam.
The system is based on proven Dometic marine electric steering technology for outboard-powered boats, which was nominated for the DAME Design Award 2022.
This new Dometic Optimus Electric Steering Actuator for wake boats meets an important need in the boatbuilding market, while delivering a vastly improved driving experience for operators of this increasingly popular class of vessel. Electric steering removes the loads felt on the steering wheel and eliminates any ‘bumpiness’ the operator might feel while driving. As a result, wake boat drivers can enjoy effortless steering and sports car-like control, enhanced driver focus and a better ride for those in the water.
