After years of successfully delivering the Jefa rudder systems for their yachts, Bavaria Yachts have decided to also equip their yachts with Jefa steering systems. The Jefa team has designed a very compact and efficient steering system for the new models 46 Cruiser and 51 Cruiser, a twin steering system driving twin rudders. The 46 Cruiser and 51 Cruiser are steeringwise identical.
All movable steering parts are produced by Jefa: Rudderstocks & blades, rudder bearings (self-aligning roller bearings), twin cable steering system and the autopilot drive unit.
A closer look of the system seen from below. The cable system drive the central quadrant which drives both rudders via a draglink. The autopilot drive (black mushroom) is integrated in the system and easy and quick to mount.
A look of the autopilot flange without the drive unit. Standard the ship is delivered like this making the autopilot drive installation a matter of minutes. Especially as the rudder feedback unit can be integrated inside the drive unit (only for Garmin pilots).
The autopilot mounted to the autopilot flange.
