The rugged drive unit of the SmartPilot X-5 Tiller autopilot makes it the perfect choice for larger tiller steered yachts and racers. The SmartPilot X-5 Tiller autopilot is designed for vessels with a laden displacement of up to 6,000kg (13,200lbs). Choose the more powerful SmartPilot Tiller X-5 GP for vessels with a laden displacement of up to 7,500kg (16,500lbs).
You can steer straight to a waypoint, lock on to a given wind angle, or simply set and follow a course to steer by making the most of the full SeaTalk and NMEA compatibility.
The fluxgate compass is separated from the drive unit for greater accuracy and you can mount the control unit wherever it will be within easy reach for you. The large clear ST6002 display shows you up-to-the-minute information and also acts as a multi-function instrument or navaid repeater. SmartPilot X-5 Tiller is also equipped with the latest SeaTalkng networking and features an integrated rate gyro processor ensuring razor-sharp course keeping under any conditions..
Complete with everything needed for easy installation, the SmartPilot X-5 Tiller is quick to fit and simple to use. Used by the world’s top single-handed race skippers, Raymarine tiller pilots meet the demands of the serious sailor.
Remember, always take the fully laden displacement weight of your vessel into account. This is often 20% above the designed displacement. Do not choose a pilot which will always be working at the limit of its design capabilities.
