Hydrovane Self Steering

Imagine sailing – powered by the wind and steered by the wind. Hydrovane has been steering dreams for 50 years. We would be delighted to be a part of yours.

Hydrovane is both:

  • A Self Steering Windvane System: a completely independent mechanical system that steers the boat on a wind-based course. Easiest to operate, with no lines in the cockpit, and excellent on all points of sail and in all conditions.

  • An Emergency Rudder/ Steering System: inherently a second Rudder and Steering System for your boat. Always in place, nothing to set-up – takes the fear out of losing your rudder or breaking your vessel’s steering mid passage or close to shore.

Yes Hydrovane is used on Catamarans too

Check out this great footage off Mallorca of a Garcia 48 Catamaran weighing over 23 Tons! "It works perfectly on a 23 tons aluminum cat - GARCIA 48, entered in the next WORLD ARC" And a later report: "This week we tested the GARCIA with 25 knots wind from behind - excellent with your XT vane !!!!!!"
