IMPROVES YOUR BOATS OVERALL PERFORMANCE - GUARANTEED!!!

If these trim tabs don't provide you with an outstanding performance increase, contact us within 30 days of your purchase.

Why buy a manually adjusting trim tab set when you can get the automatic trim tabs that will self adjust and performance better for less money?

Designed for boats 23' - 30' weighing up to 6500 lbs The ST 1610 Series is ideal for low profile Fiber Glass, Aluminum, and RIB design boat with transom widths less than 10 feet (trailerable boats). This heavy duty system provides an active suspension system for the boat that increases stability and smooths the ride even in rough seas. Easier planning at slower speeds, increased payload performance, improved tracking and handling are available automatically without the need for pilot interface. No switches, no electric or hydraulic connections, and no maintenance. Just get in and go!

Specially designed for boats between 23' and 30", under 10' in width, and up to 8,500 Lbs gross weight. The ST1610 series features two nitrogen gas actuators per plate providing increased stern lift and twice the reactive dampening, eliminating any instant changes from water pressure variances. This fully automatic and active system provides smooth and undetectable reaction to boat speed, and water conditions creating a level more comfortable ride.

Our breakthrough technology in trim tabs is completely automatic requiring no operator adjustment while underway. Nauticus trim tabs self adjust according to how you load and maneuver your boat.

The nitrogen Gas Actuator provides LIFT at the stern of the boat by holding the trim plate down during acceleration. The amount of LIFT is determined by the actuator load rating and the trim plate adjustment, which is done at the time of installation.

  • Reduce the minimum planning speed by up to 33%
  • Faster Acceleration
  • Increase top speed
  • Provide a level, more comfortable ride at lower speeds
  • Improve fuel economy, handling and safety

NO HYDRAULICS - NO ELECTRIC SWITCHES

Nauticus trim tabs are completely automatic requiring no operator adjustment while underway.

The nitrogen Gas Actuator provides LIFT at the stern of the boat by holding the trim plate down during acceleration. The amount of LIFT is determined by the actuator load rating and the trim plate adjustment, which is done at the time of installation.(see installation instruction).

SPEED REGULATION

Nauticus trim tabs start in a downward angel to maximize lift at slow speeds. As the boat accelerates, the water pushes up on the trim plates providing lift to the stern which minimizes bow rise, and allows the boat to plane quickly.

Once the water pressure exceeds the actuator load rating (maximum lift) the trim plates move up to a horizontal position eliminating any drag.

BOAT STABILIZERS

Even when cruising SMART TABS continue to work like shock absorbers. The constant adjustment to sea conditions allow SMART TABS to provide remarkable stability in turns, while crossing waves, while cruising, and while running at maximum speeds. No more sliding, porpoising, or chine walking.

ONE OF A KIND

The unique system is the only one of its kind in the industry. The internal valve system is truly "smart" in its design of controlling you boats performance.

It will reduce the minimum planning speed by 33%

Provide a level, more comfortable ride at lower speeds

Improve economy, handling and safety

As the boat speed increases, the water pressure also increases. Once the water pressure exceeds the Actuator load rating (maximum LIFT period) the trim plates begin to move upward until they are horizontal with the bottom of the boat.

The internal valve system dampens the trim plate movement which eliminates any instant reaction to minor water pressure variances. Nauticus trim tabs provide smooth and undetectable reaction to boat speed creating a level, more comfortable ride at lower speeds.

INSTALLATION IS SIMPLE

With an electric drill, small drill bit, a phillips screwdriver, and two wrenches, just about anyone can install SMART TABS in less than an hour. Professional installers should be able to install SMART TABS in 30 minutes or less.

All mounting hardware, instructions, and templates are included.

SMART TABS require NO THROUGH HULL DRILLING
