The Seapilot 76 with a variety of standard options is a very complete sea pilotImtech Marine introduces the new multifunctional SeaPilot 76. The variety of standard options in the SeaPilot 76 results in a very complete sea pilot. The SeaPilot 76 can be turned into a fully approved combined sea and river pilot and can be connected to both proportional and on/off valves. This makes the modernized Seapilot 76 a good addition to the Sigma-line of Radio Zeeland. The SeaPilot 76 is suitable for the fishing industry as well as inland, coastal and deepsea shipping. Imtech Marine presents the SeaPilot 76 at the Europort exhibition, 5-8 November in Rotterdam, stand no. 1124, hall 1.

The SeaPilot 76 is designed with clear graphical displays and easy to use control buttons. A large and clear LCD display presents all functions and information in a well-organized way. The pilot complies with the requirements of the Marine Equipment Directive and the Shipping Inspectorate. By connecting a rate of turn indicator and a FU steering handle, the SeaPilot76 becomes an approved riverpilot system. The SeaPilot76 is suitable for different kinds of steering or rudder systems and heading sensors and has an integrated pilot watch alarm output.
