Hydrovane

We are returning from the Caribien and will come to Falmouth from the Azores end of june 2010. From there we go to the Netherlands, Germany and back to DK. We bought a new Hydrovane before setting out July 2009, because we could not find a second hand one. Or more precisely, the two Hydrovanes we found was so old that newer product developments necessary for a good match to our boat was missing.

We have not used the unit more than a few hours for fun. It was purely bought to backup our lovely autopilot and as an emergency rudder. We have a Dufour 385, and had a special bracket for assymmetric installation manufactured for the upper connection point - the bracket works with the H bracket from Hydrovane. There is a very good chance that the special bracket can be made to fit your boat by simple cut and reweld. The lower connection point is another H bracket. The Hydrovane model is a VXA2D, shaft length is L. Extra vane cover and locking pin.

These Hydrovanes live forever and I sell for 75% of new price and the special bracket comes for free.

Our Hydrovane can be delivered from Falmouth and onwards as we will then enter smaller waters..
