Regulator Marine said it added SeaStar Solutions’ Optimus Electronic Power Steering as a standard feature on 2017 models launching this summer.

The system will be on models that range from the Regulator 23 to the Regulator 34SS, including the all-new Regulator 31.

“With SeaStar, steering is virtually effortless, and the fact that you can literally plug the autopilot system in without dealing with extra pumps and wiring is a real winner for us — and for our customers!” Regulator president Joan Maxwell said in a statement.

Regulator said the system will complement its reputation for comfort and stability in any offshore condition.

Revolutionizing the way boaters steer and control their boats with auto-adjusting, speed-sensitive wheel effort and turns lock to lock, whether running at speed offshore or negotiating a tight spot at the dock, Optimus EPS will amplify customers’ experience on the water, the company said.
