Designer's Comments

In 2005, SAILOMAT celebrated its 30 year anniversary of world leadership in design and manufacturing of self-steering systems for cruising sailboats, by introducing the SAILOMAT 700, replacing the SAILOMAT 601. Model 700 is a state-of-the-art all-mechanical wind-vane self-steering, designed to fit all cruising sailboats 24-50 feet LOA. In 2008, model 700 was replaced by the improved model 760.

Each SAILOMAT 700/760 will be custom-sized for the individual application. The unique and superior technology is based on new patented design principles and high-tech manufacturing techniques, combined with 30 years of know-how from previous SAILOMAT models. It represents the fifth generation of self-steering systems designed and built and designed by SAILOMAT.

The SAILOMAT 700/760 systems are sold and delivered factory-direct world-wide from our Design Office in San Diego, USA, while the system components are primarily manufactured in Europe.

I will personally attempt to assist each individual SAILOMAT customer, and to give my best professional recommendations for a successful and best possible SAILOMAT installation on each individual yacht.
