Manitou signs deal to offer Teleflex steering systems

Manitou Pontoon Boats will be the first builder to offer buyers a choice of the new Teleflex Marine Xtreme mechanical or SeaStar hydraulic steering systems.

Manitou is the first company to fully commit to our new Xtreme system,” Teleflex Marine vice president of sales and marketing Tom Douglass said in a statement. “We appreciate Manitou’s confidence in our new system. Their customers will be thrilled with the performance.”

Teleflex Marine Xtreme Steering reduces the effort required to turn the wheel in boats with higher-horsepower engines or hulls with large wetted surfaces, such as pontoons. A key to this performance is the robust Xtreme Steering Cable with splined ridges on the inner liner for minimal contact between the liner and core. The resulting reduction in cable friction improves performance and keeps the steering system running smoother longer, according to Teleflex.
