They're the favorite with the single handed offshore racing crowd. They had a rate gyro before anybody else. Now rate gyros are more common (std. with Navman). But they do have a very cool MOB integrated autopilot controller.

I delivered an Express 37 Hawaii to SF with one, undoubtedly the best autopilot I've ever used. Installation much easier if you can find someone fluent in French.
