ProVane Windpilot

Has anyone come across the ProVane Windpilot from Estonia? I've seen it on the Sail Life youtube channel but cannot find any contact details online. It look like a compeditor to hydrovane but at a more reasonable price.

Re: ProVane Windpilot

Yes I have one installed on my 33ft yacht. Works brilliantly. I am in Australia and it cost a lot to ship but still came out cheaper than other options. I am very pleased with my purchase decision. Product very well made.

I have got to know the developer of this product quite well through this purchase. He hasnít made it publicly advertised as yet but has sold many and lots of big yachts using the Provane successfully for ocean passages.

You can access his site which sells another wind-vane called the Windy, at

Use the contact page on the site and tell him Mark from Australia referred you.

Good luck.

Re: ProVane Windpilot

I have his "other" model called Windy installed on my boat. Excellent product, and yes, he is very good to deal with.
The problem is that he has more than he can handle right now, its a small business with a high demand, which is good for him but requires lots of patience.
