Trim Systems for Boats

Trimming and how to do it correctly is a never-ending topic. Some suppliers provide fully automatic trim systems as a solution, which of course can also be operated manually. The trim system ensures a stable position in the water when half-planing and planing. Trimming also helps you to start planing earlier, which has a positive effect on fuel consumption Learn more about Trim Systems...

Trimming - How does it work?

At the push of a button, the trim tabs move into the desired position by means of the positioning cylinders. The water resistance on the downward sloping plates generates upward pressure. Thus, during movement, the stern is lifted and the bow is lowered.
The principle is simple, the result is impressive. Without squeezing the throttle, the speed increases and the boat planes in the optimum position, regardless of weight distribution and speed.

Tab control

The heart of the unit is the tab control, with or without a position indicator. Two types of drives are available; hydraulic or electric. The advantages and disadvantages of these different drives are based in their installations, their maintenance and their accuracy in controlling; for example a hydraulic system requires a much more complex installation than an electric system.

What different trim tab systems are available?

Many factors play a role when selecting a trim tab size. To help you decide which to choose, the different trim sizes come with recommendations for suitable boat sizes.
