The Simrad Tillerpilots are watertight units that fix quickly and positively to the tiller with a simple installation kit. Having been tested to extreme levels, the Tillerpilot will continue to operate even in severe weather conditions. These are robust and long lasting pilots which are available in three sizes to handle a wide range of boat types and tiller loads.
Designed for tiller-steered sailboats up to around 11,000 lbs approx. 35 ft., the TP10 is a high power, no-nonsense autopilot which can comfortably outperform all challengers in its class.
With a peak thrust of 143 lbs. and a lock-to-lock speed of 8 secs with a 44lbs. load, the TP10 shows just what can be achieved with advanced design and engineering.
The Simrad TP10 should be installed so that it is level and 90 degrees to the tiller when it is amidships and the pushrod is in the midstroke position. The pilot is factory preset to be mounted on the Starboard side, but can be reconfigured for Port side mounting.
