Dotan`s rudder benefits

  • Flick-of-the-Wrist Magic

    Dotan's conceptually brilliant rudder mechanism enables you to set the blade with a simple flick of the wrist. This action takes less than a second
    Say goodbye once and for all to ropes, elastic bands, fly-nut, screw-in rudder systems and multi-step setting and lifting actions.
  • Rudder Box: Constructed of Non-Corrosive

    Incomparably strong and matchlessly durable, using non-corrosive, composite materials which make the Dotan rudder box more steadier against dynamic loadings than aluminum boxes.
  • Rudder Blade 

    The rudder blade is lightweight and yet durable thanks to the integrated spar and special know-how of high-pressure technology with thermal shock.
    The Dotan rudder blade's profile is designed on the basis of the STEINER and NACA 0009 hydrodynamic profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics). The Dotan rudder blade's shape minimizes wave and inductive resistance (more info.)

  • Rudder Adjustment

    The design makes it easy to adapt the rudder box to a variety of sailing boats and catamarans. The rudder box provides the ability to adjust the distance between the gudgeons.
  • Encountering obstacles

    When hitting underwater obstacles such as rocks, sandbanks, jellyfish, etc., the blade automatically kicks up.
  • Warranty

    The rudder box for Optimists has a 5-year limited warranty.
