New hydraulic trim tabs from Bennett Marine - the BXT System - have the durability and strength that 40-foot to 60-foot motoryachts, as well as military/commercial and sportfishing vessels, require, according to the company.


Part of Bennett's new Premier Line, the dual-acting hydraulic system locks the solid stainless-steel actuators in place, securing the trim tabs when necessary. With internal indication sensors and internal hydraulic lines, the actuators require no wires or cables and are not exposed to the marine environment, according to the company. The tabs are built with 7-gauge stainless steel. Bennett's Electronic Indicator shows tab position, and the Control and Auto Tab Retractor brings up the tabs when the vessel's ignition is turned off. The BXT System can be retrofitted to existing vessels, and all wire lengths are customized to the boat's specifications. System pricing starts at $4,000 (retail).
