Boating Tips: Yacht Rudder Alignment

Welcome to Boating Tips with MarineMax! Believe it or not, we do read the comments! As a reply to a past video, here’s how you align the rudders on your yacht so that your props are straight. Ask your questions, make comments, and learn a thing or two about your favorite outdoor activity.

If you want your emblem to be straight across your steering wheel and have your rudders straight, follow this simple process:

  1. Straighten your rudders in accordance with your rudder indicator
  2. Press “autopilot”, this will hold your rudders straight
  3. Level out your steering wheel so that your emblem is straight across
  4. Disengage autopilot 

This isn’t just the case with Aquila Power Catamarans, this is applicable to a whole host of other yacht brands as well. For this and other yacht-related questions, call, click, or visit your local MarineMax store. We’ll see you out there!
