Systems for coastal cruising, blue water cruising and grand prix racers
Multihulls have specific requirements ranging from the obvious, such as multiple helming locations and dual rudders, through to options such as rotating masts and multiple speed and depth sensors. B&G have navigation, instrument and autopilot systems to suit all multihull sailors.
Open Living Space
Many catamarans have open saloon areas with the navigation area very much a part of the overall living space. B&G’s Zeus Glass Helm navigation systems allow full control and monitoring of systems via low-profile touch-enabled displays and convenient remote, providing a stylish and functional system to complement the interior.
With a catamaran’s ability to explore shallower coves and beaches where charting may not be as reliable, sailors will benefit from ForwardScan functionality showing depth and underwater obstructions in front of the yacht.
For optimum range performance, radars should be located on the mast, rather than a low pole mount. If the mast rotates, it is critical to accurately correct for mast angle. B&G Zeus and Vulcan navigation systems dynamically rotate the radar image, AIS and MARPA targets as the mast is rotated, keeping the image perfectly aligned. Wind data can also be corrected for mast angle allowing the sensor to be located on top of the mast in clear airflow. This ensures you are getting the most accurate wind data to your instruments and autopilot.
