SeaStar Solutions adds Raymarine autopilot system

Posted on

SeaStar Solutions selected Raymarine’s Evolution EV-2 drive-by-wire autopilot system for its new Optimus EPS and Optimus 360 electronic steering systems.

Optimus EPS systems provide electronic power steering for outboard powerboats; Optimus 360 systems add 360-degree maneuvering capabilities, using an intuitive joystick controller.

“SeaStar Solutions’ Optimus EPS and Optimus 360 truly integrates the electronic and mechanical systems on board a boat,” global sales and marketing vice president Tom Douglass said in a statement. “With Optimus and Raymarine’s new Evolution autopilot, it’s easier than ever to add the benefits of autopilot navigation.”

Raymarine’s new Evolution autopilot is now a double award winner, recently receiving both the 2013 National Marine Electronics Association-Boat Writers International Technology award and the IBEX Innovation Award for electronics.

“Raymarine’s Evolution EV-2 is a great solution for drive-by-wire systems,” Raymarine senior global product manager Ian Matt said in a statement. “Not only do SeaStar’s Optimus customers get great autopilot performance from the EV-2, they now have the added advantage of controlling that autopilot direct from their Raymarine multifunction display.”
