Raymarine launches SPX-5R at RIBEX 2011
RIBEX 2011 provided the stage for the launch of Raymarine’s SPX-5R helm-mounted autopilot for tenders and Rigid Inflatable Boats.
The pilot comprises a drive unit that sits over the existing steering wheel shaft, with a course computer equipped with rate gyro for precise course keeping and a control head with large LCD display. Easy to install, the SPX-5R fits directly onto the tapered steering shaft behind the wheel. It is also simple to calibrate, using Raymarine's intelligent ‘Autolearn’ software, which automatically learns the boat's handling characteristics.
Raymarine’s UK Sales and Marketing Executive, Sarah Brooke, said: “We are excited to be revealing this new product at RIBEX. It is perfect for the RIB and small sports boat market, and we are pleased to be able to demonstrate it in full to visitors onboard the Ring Powercraft during RIBEX.”
