Prout autopilots

Can someone assist me in finding out what kind of an autoplot I can get for the Prout 37. It has hydaulic steering and at present an older Cetrek autopilot. I have had autopilots before but not for hydraulic steering. Any info. that can be put forward would be appreciated.

Raymarine S2G is a great piece of kit and will work with a hydraulic system (need the appropriate pump)

The S2 is cheaper, but the "G" adds rate gyros to the system and means it works a LOT better.

Tom, We installed a Simrad autopilot electronics package in our Privilege 37 to marry up with existing hydraulic ram. The new electronics adapted well to existing hydraulic ram and we are pleased with the set up. Since you have hydraulic steering, the installation may be even easier. Most underdeck autopilot systems can be adapted to either mechanical or hydraulic steering. Also checkout Raymarine and Navman.
