Mechanical steering is the
ideal solution for vessels needing simplicity,
precise control and a positive feel of the
rudder position at the helm. Mathway steering is
the preferred system for many pilot boats and
has also been fitted to numerous RNLI lifeboats,
sailing vessels and motor boats. These simple
systems come with or without power assistance
and have a service life of many years, with
Mathway RRD and NMG gearboxes were fitted to large marine engines, including Rolls-Royce
oil engines. They are very reliable and we still support them.
Parsons marine gearboxes
These incredibly robust
gearboxes have been fitted to thousands of
marine craft, all over the world. Large numbers are still in regular use,
including many over fifty years old. Relying
on a simple well-conceived design, they have few
wearing parts. Although no longer manufactured,
many of the gearboxes in service are fully
supported by Parsons Mathway Marine.
