Steering Comfort

schmitt-ongaro-marinesteering-wheel

Schmitt & Ongaro Marine designed the Primus cast stainless steel steering wheel for ergonomic comfort and durability. It is NMMA type-accepted and CE certified, exceeds ABYC P-22 and ISO 8848 standards, and comes with a lifetime warranty. Available in diameters of 13 1/2 and 15 1/2 inches, the rim is slightly thicker than the standard for many other wheels. This decreases hand fatigue, according to the company. Prices: $573 to $633.
