Pumps mounted on a panel and located in the cockpit, on a pedestal, near the rail, or on any bulkhead, can drive one or more cylinders located anywhere in the boat.
Generally, remote panel pumps result in less crew, more control, and faster cylinder action than integral pumps. They can be configured to push or pull cylinders for common applications such as backstays, vangs, forestays, outhauls, and many “uncommon” custom applications, such as manual swim platform cylinders, canting keels, mast jacks and others.
Selection can depend on class rules, size, depth, weight, speed of operation, cost and appearance.
SAILTEC produces a range of proven, durable and reliable panel-mounted pumps that allow you to select a panel to balance the factors of size, speed, and cost with the needs of your boat. Other brands expect you to take their limited size, speed and cost and find a place to install them. We believe the SAILTEC panel selection is the broadest, smallest, fastest, most cost effective and most durable in the industry. The high level of customer satisfaction, factory support and nice appearance are bonuses.
