The Zeus3 Glass Helm series is available in 16-, 19- and 24-inch displays.

Sailing navigation and instrument company B&G has introduced the Zeus3 Glass Helm series chartplotter for blue-water sailing, multihulls and superyachts.

“We are really pleased to introduce the new B&G Zeus Glass Helm,” said Alan Davis, product line director, B&G, in a statement. It provides a sleek, intuitive and powerful solution for larger sailing yachts and can be integrated easily to work with and control the many functions on board, including B&G dedicated sailing and navigation features to the onboard digital systems.”

The bright wide-angle full HD display has an all-weather touchscreen and a low-profile glass design that is available in 16- 19- and 24-inch displays. The Zeus can be used to plan a route, check for obstacles and weather on the radar and for navigation. The display can also be used with buttons and rotary dial through a Zeus controller.

Zeus comes with sailing functions that bring all key sailing data on one screen with a split screen or overlaid on navigation charts. B&G says the built-in quad-core processor provides fast data processing and eliminates the need for a separate black box. This also permits integration of radar, ForwardScan charting, autopilots, sonar, digital monitoring and more.

Taking data from B&G instruments and sensors, B&G SailSteer provides an intuitive graphic display of boat speed, wind speed, heading, tide, wind shift sectors and laylines. Users can add waypoints or plot a course with the interface and touchscreen. With SailingTime, users can see waypoint arrival times based on a sailing course and tidal effects.
