Ullman Console – th e e pi to m e o f e r g o n o mics – Custom made
The Ullman Aerodynamic Console is designed
and shaped to reduce air resistance while
protecting the crew from wind and spray.

It is designed for optimal ergonomics in the most


challenging operational conditions. It can be used for
port or starboard helm position and provides optimal
positioning for steering wheel and throttle.

The console is built in GRP sandwich and is


strategically reinforced to withstand high impacts. It is
fitted with a 10 mm (3/8”) heavy-duty windscreen.

The Ullman Console can be used with a traditional


steering wheel or with the Ullman Steering Bar
