Performance Highlights

B&G’s H5000 Instrument systems deliver high-performance, sailing-specific features and powerful race-proven technology to sailors who appreciate the best.


3D Motion

Wind measurement is affected by the wind induced at the top of the mast by the pitching and rolling of the yacht. The solution is 3D motion correction. H5000 takes data from multiple sensors including high-specification rate-gyros to correct for induced wind, providing the best wind solution available in an instrument system.


H5000’s StartLine feature provides high-resolution data for distance to line, distance to line ends, line bias and the boat-lengths gained by starting at the favoured end. H5000 StartLine uses BowPosition, calculating the position of the yacht’s bow ten times per second. For the ultimate in starting performance, interface H5000 with a Zeus3 chartplotter.

H5000 Interface

Browser-based configuration of the H5000 system enables advanced calibration, set-up and diagnostics without the hassle of negotiating a complex menu system. The powerful web-style interface can be accessed via PC, tablet or smartphone.

Advanced Calibration

H5000 offers the ultimate in high resolution sensor input, the best processing techniques and optimum system calibration, with corrections for almost every function for the most precise data.

Select a CPU to match your sailing requirements

Select the H5000 CPU that is right for you. H5000 systems are available to purchase as base packs which include the H5000 Graphic Display, CPU and network backbone kit.

H5000 Hydra

The H5000 Hydra CPU is the brains behind the ultimate bluewater or cruiser/racer system. Its ultrafast dual ARM processors deliver data in an instant and the browser based setup allows straight-forward configuration and settings backup.

H5000 Hercules

The H5000 CPU with Hercules software is geared for success on the race course. Hercules builds on the Hydra level and adds race focused features including Polar Tables for performance targets, 3D Motion correction support for the ultimate in wind data accuracy.

H5000 Performance

The powerful H5000 CPU with Performance software is designed for larger racing yachts and Superyachts. It offers the ability to run and monitor complex sailing systems with enhanced sensor options and up to 16 user defined functions.

Displays to suit any boat

The H5000 range includes displays to suit any boat. From full-colour graphic displays to high-visibility mast units and analogue displays for classic boats, you can have H5000 data presented in a style that suits your boat - and they're all simple to connect with NMEA2000.

H5000 Graphic Display

The H5000 Graphic Display boasts a 5-inch, sunlight viewable, colour screen with a highly intuitive user interface. It’s packed with sailing features including SailSteer, StartLine and WindPlot, for tracking weather trends.

H5000 Race Display

The bonded glass H5000 Race Display features a large, clear custom display to deliver essential race data at a glance. With huge viewing angles and excellent visibility, this 5-inch LCD screen is sunlight readable and the backlight can be dimmed to almost zero for night sailing.

H5000 Analogue Displays

H5000 Analogue displays provide proven H5000 accuracy in analogue form for classic boats and a traditional look. Displays are available for Apparent and True wind angle, depth, boat speed, heading and rudder angle.


This new generation of intelligent sailing display offers unparalleled visibility, with complete customisation or easy to use multi-function templates and automatic dashboards based on your angle of sail.

H5000 Pilot Advanced Sailing Features

The H5000 Pilot isn’t the same as other autopilots. Its expert systems constantly monitor heading, wind, sea-state, heel angle and other variables to react to changes in conditions immediately, providing the performance you expect from H5000's Advanced Sailing Features and safety in equal measure.


Recovery mode

Recognises sudden course deviations caused by out of pattern waves or ship wakes and ensures that the yacht returns to the course quicker.

Gust Response

Gust response takes preventative action based on incoming H5000 or WTP3 instrument data to hold a more stable course in changeable wind conditions.

High-Wind Response

High-wind response naturally bears the yacht away if wind increases while reaching to keep the boat flatter and driving faster. B&G’s H5000 Pilot contains failsafe systems and user configurable hard-limits to provide safety features to match its performance.
