Tiller lifestyle

Meeting the Demands of the Serious Sailor


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. Used by some of the world's top single-handed sailors, Raymarine tiller pilots meet the demands of the serious sailor.




SPX-5 or SPX-5 GP?


The SPX-5 Tiller Pilot is suitable for most cruising and racing scenarios, however, extended cruising or challenging racing conditions may benefit from the added ruggedness of the SPX-5 GP Tiller Pilot.

Always take the fully laden displacement weight of your vessel into account, this is often 20% above the designed displacement, so don't be tempted to choose a pilot which will always be working to the limits of its design capabilities.


If you choose your pilot with safety in mind, it won't struggle when the going gets tough.







We recommend that you consult a Raymarine approved dealer who can specify, install and commission the correct Raymarine system for your boat.
