Effortless steering control on the water.



The ultimate steering experience

The incredible feel you get when you’re behind the wheel of a boat equipped with Optimus EPS is the result of an innovative array of technology and engineering. Each component has been designed to complement the other, resulting in a seamless experience of steering control in virtually every situation on the water.

For centuries, people have been steering boats by brute force. While cable steering, and more recently hydraulics, have made steering easier, the prime mover is still the arms and hands of the captain at the wheel. But all of that has changed. Dometic revolutionizes boat handling with Optimus Electronic Power Steering (EPS) for single, twin, triple & quad outboard, inboard & sterndrive engine boats.

Advantages of Optimus EPS

  • No oil at helm

  • Boat that steers like a sports car

  • Unmatched sensitivity at the helm

  • Removes cumbersome hydraulic component

  • Plug-and-play autopilot compatibility with drive by wire system
