  • Optimus EPS | Electronic Power Steering
    Optimus EPS (Electronic Power Steering) provides both ease of use and speed-adaptive technology to provide superior control, whether at slow speeds in the marina or running in open seas...

  • Available for Both Retrofit and New Engine Installations

    As the captain of your vessel you know how important it is to have command of your yacht, Optimus EPS gives you the steering control, performance, and comfort you expect. With Optimus EPS, you can take command of your yacht without having to arm-wrestle for control.

    Active Sensitivity

    Lock-to-lock turns and wheel effort are programmed to change with engine RPM. At slow speeds, Optimus EPS can be set to reduce the number of turns lock-to-lock, for example, 4 and make it easier to steer. When you’re negotiating through traffic or in a tight spot, those smaller moves of the wheel give you precise control. When you’re running at speed in open water, Optimus EPS can be set to increase lock-to-lock turns, for example, and increase steering effort giving the driver more stability to comfortably keep on course. And through it all, Optimus EPS does the work, so you can relax and take it easy.

    Advantages of Optimus Electronic Power Steering

  • There’s Nothing It Can’t Do

    Optimus 360, for twin, triple and quad engine applications

    Optimus 360 gives your boat a whole new dimension of control. By developing the joystick function to be intuitive, Optimus 360 allows you to move your boat not only forward and back, but also sideways, by pushing the joystick to the left, or to the right, and even, rotate on a dime, all with a simple twist of the joystick.

    Optimus 360 is designed for low-speed maneuvering and really excels in the marina when pulling in and out of your slip, or docking. Optimus 360 uses intelligent programming to minimize the amount of shifting required to complete a maneuver.

    With progressive throttling, the joystick becomes a natural extension of your hand. A light push on the joystick provides minimal thrust while more thrust can be applied by pushing harder on the joystick. The boost mode increases the RPM to give you more thrust when needed.

    Each component has been designed to complement the other, resulting in a seamless experience of steering control in virtually every situation on the water. The high level of engineering also extends to the reliability of the system, with quality materials, careful manufacturing, and redundant systems, all to stand up to the rigors of life on the water.

  • MDI | Marine Digital Integrators
    Imagine controlling all of your electrical components via one simple, programmable, touch screen system ready to plug and play. SeaStar has now brought this technology to the marine market....

  • Imagine controlling all of your electrical components via one simple, programmable, touch screen system… ready to plug and play.

    Digital switching has been a part of our life in the telecommunication & automotive industries and now SeaStar has brought this technology to the marine market.  Wiring analog DC systems on your boat can be very complex and this problem is scaled with the size of vessel which can sometimes lead to multiple switches per load.  Analog DC systems are difficult to install and troubleshoot, however, a digital switching system from MDI solves these problems through the use of a fully integrated touchscreen display to replace all the physical switches on your dashboard.  This touchscreen display is also corrosion proof which therefore eliminates the common corrosion issue found with physical switches.

    Digital switching modules are dispersed around your boat and connected with a single network cable, which will provide you with more room inside your boat instead of using up space for wiring bundles in the walls.  Digital switches are infinitely customizable.  If you would like to turn on different lights at the same time, you can quickly change it without having to rewire your boat and the self-diagnostic systems will report any wiring issues.  All of these features offer you a fully integrated boat where all of your electrical systems and actuators are controlled through the screen.

  • Xtreme Control Cables
    SeaStar Xtreme control cables feature an exclusive splined core that moves smoothly and with minimum lost motion, even when long, complex runs are involved....

  • With its unique splined core XTREME delivers unparalleled smoothness and efficiency – with hardly any lost motion – even in the longest and most complex cable routings. This gives superior feel at the control, performance that until now was considered ‘impossible’.

    Traditional cables vary by the stiffness of the core wire and how tightly it fits in the casing. Thus the classic trade-offs that have existed in control cable design: Stiffer core/tighter fit offers less lost motion, but is harder to move. With longer and more complex runs, cable movement becomes progressively more difficult.

    More flexible core/looser fit has an easier feel but allows more lost motion. This approach leads to an overall sloppy feel, RPM loss or difficult gear engagement.

    These trade-offs aren’t an issue for cables with XTREME technology because they are different — really different!

    SeaStar Solutions®’s unique XTREME technology incorporates a patented splined core. Ridges on the core allow a close fit with the cable’s inner liner, but with minimum contact, so the core glides back and forth smoothly like a skater on ice.

    RESULT: a control cable with easy movement AND minimum lost motion.


    • XTREME’s unique design incorporates a patent-pending splined core which allows easy movement and minimum lost motion
    • Designed for complex and/or long cable runs (or to simply create a superior feel)
    • Available in several style options avoiding the need for adaptor kits
    • All XTREME cables are available in 1ft increments
    • Gen II type suits Mercury 4000 series controls

  • i7800 Electronic Engine Control System
    The NEW i7700 actuator contains both the shift and throttle actuator within one compact housing and is not only powerful enough to manage the shift and throttle functions on the most extreme applications....

  • Shift and Throttle Actuators

    The NEW i7700 actuator contains both the shift and throttle actuator within one compact housing and are not only powerful enough to manage the shift and throttle functions on the most extreme applications, they are also exceedingly responsive and robust. The actuators are linked to the control heads via a single 1/4” (6mm) CANbus cable making cable routing incredibly easy. In addition, the i7700 actuators have a mechanical back up “get home” feature which allows simple manual control should the need arise.

    Style, Control and Functionality

    The simple to install i7800 electronic control system replaces the existing mechanical control system. Why wrestle with your mechanical controls when you can have the benefits of electronic controls for a fraction of the cost of a new engine.
    The smooth movement of the electronic controls enables much greater handling of the throttle and a fluid transition between gears. This translates into better control of the boat in all applications ranging from sport fishing and cruisers to commercial vessels. You will find it hard to go back to mechanical controls after the smooth and reliable response you get from the i7800 electronic controls. Regardless of the type of engine and drive, i7800 can provide precise control and comfort for your boating application.

    Single Lever Operation

    The ability to synchronize the engines and control cruise with one lever is incredibly useful. This feature enhances your boating experience by making it easier to control your boat regardless of the speed.
