PERFORMANCE
How did nke achieve such
a level of performance?
nke developed a pilot directly intended for sailing boats. Initially, the skippers’
request was to leave the helm to the pilot under spinnaker.
The boat can be balanced when sailing close-hauled. Downwind sailing
however, due to varying speed on waves and changes in speed and apparent
wind angles, is very unstable.

nke’s pilot objective : Steering at the right time to surf down a wave.
The nke solution : nke was the first to integrate a rate gyro in the pilot’s control
loop to detect this moment. Many skippers are surprised to be overtaken by a
competitor sailing under spinnaker and Gyropilot.

> This display is particularly suitable for boats longer than 45’ PROTEUS
Especially designed for larger sail boats, the SL50 displays all the data
calculated and transmitted by the sensors to the nearest degree. Its large size
digits guarantee you excellent clarity even from a distance, a remote control
allows you to scroll though the information displayed, while the exclusive
automatic Man Over Board detection system ensures your safety.

> Wireless comfort


The wireless remote control for the gyropilot allows you to change heading
wherever you are on the boat. The wireless remote control for the multifunc-
tion displays allows you to scroll through all the information available, and
adjust your settings without limitations.

> Safety onboard


The exclusive Man Over Board detection system is integrated in all nke wire-
less remote controls. In the event of a MOB, the Man Over Board procedure is
activated : the crew is alerted by a loud audible alarm, the heading and
distance to the Man Over Board are displayed, and the boat is turned head to
wind.

> Measures rig tension & sail shape


To enable you to achieve maximum performance, nke can equip your boat
with our wireless strain measurement system : PROTEUS.
You can view the shape of your sail on a screen using the Batten Vision soft-
ware from both inside the cabin and outside in the cockpit, allowing you to op-
timize your sail trim.
