Ultimate In stress free docking.

Optimus 360 by SeaStar uses state-of-the-art electronics to provide easy 360-degree maneuvering capabilities when docking, negotiating crowded areas or loading a vessel onto a trailer.  Even novice boaters using the Optimus 360 Joystick Control System can confidently move the boat forward, backwards, diagonally, rotate it on its own axis, or even move sideways to accomplish tricky docking maneuvers.  As the operator easily moves the joystick, the SmartCylinders respond instantly to independently steer each outboard, engage forward/neutral/reverse gears and apply throttle as needed to move the boat exactly where the operator wants it to go.   Read the Brochure

Steer with new confidence through crowded docking areas with ultimate control.

The patented Optimus 360 system builds on the Optimus EPS.  The Optimus EPS system replaces the traditional hydraulic steering system.  Optimus EPS truly raises the bar when it comes to comfort, control and maneuverability, especially for the new breed of high performance powerboats, saltwater fishing vessels, catamarans, RIBS and high end pontoon boats. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever experienced when it comes to steering.  The high level of engineering also extends to the reliability of the system.  Each component has been designed to complement the other, resulting in a seamless experience of steering control in virtually every situation on the water. The high level of engineering also extends to the reliability of the system, with quality materials, careful manufacturing and redundant systems, all to stand up to the rigors of life on the water.
