A Change at the Helm

A certain guarantee in life is that things never stay the same. That is so true of the marine industry and particularly yacht design.

Our team has been out at the autumn shows around the world and we have seen some really interesting developments in the cockpit layout of sailboats.

Going are the traditional centre console helm position with wheel and compass. Instead now we’re seeing much more open cockpits with twin wheels, open transoms and clean uncluttered decks. Perhaps this influence is coming down from the Wally school of design?

This sets us a challenge when designing our instrument mounting systems for sailboats. Our latest generation of pods, launching at METS 2010, will meet these challenges and more with an exciting new take on our Scanpod range.

More on that soon…
