Raymarine is proud to announce that the Evolution™ autopilot has received the IBEX Innovation Award for electronics at the International Boatbuilders Exhibition and Conference held in Louisville KY, USA.  The Evolution™ autopilot, which was launched earlier this year, combines advanced aerospace guidance technology with Raymarine’s marine autopilot expertise to deliver a new level of accurate autopilot control. 

The Raymarine R and D teams were tasked to produce an autopilot with superior performance to anything available on the market, with no need of a set-up compass swing, minimal or no calibration, and without the need to be specifically adjusted for each boat. The result is a breakthrough in autopilot intelligence, performance and installation which has attracted the attention of boat manufacturers everywhere.

Raymarine’s latest Evolution addition is the EV-100; a complete ready-to-fit system for hydraulic steered powerboats up to 16,500lbs/7500 Kg displacement.  The all-in-one box EV-100 system consist of the EV-1 Sensor core, ACU100 (actuator control unit), p70R control head, 0.5l hydraulic pump and cables – all for $1499 USD, £995.00 ex tax, €1195 ex tax.
