Tacktick’s award winning range of performance, wireless electronics have been chosen as the instruments for the new Bavaria 40 Sport which was designed by Farr Yacht Design and was recently launched at the Düsseldorf Boat Show. A fleet of 7 of the new Bavaria 40S are also going to be used in the 2011 World Match Racing Tour taking place on Lake Constance in May 2011.
Maxis - Tacktick TackTick
The Bavaria 40S is a Sport version of Bavaria’s popular Cruiser 40 and will be fitted with Tacktick’s performance electronics as standard together with additional high performance equipment.
Included in the electronics package are the Maxi range of super-large wireless mast-mounted displays which have been designed specifically for performance yachts and offer an impressive array of innovative racing features including a start line function to indicate whether to speed up or slow down when approaching the start line and sophisticated true wind correction data.
The displays use high contrast LCD screens with super-large digits to give maximum clarity. With no wires to run through the boat or up the mast and super-thin, lightweight displays, these instruments offer the most weight efficient package for race boat owners. Also included in the package is Tacktick’s wireless Multi Dual Display for the cockpit and Tacktick’s Remote Display which enables critical racing data, including speed trends, wind trends and all the key instrument data to be displayed in the palm of your hand. The package also includes a Wireless NMEA interface box to enable seemless connectivity to other on-board electronics including racing software.
