The SmartPilot X-5 Tiller Autopilot is designed for vessels with a laden displacement of up to 6,000kg (13,200lbs). Choose the more powerful SmartPilot Tiller X-5 Grand Prix for vessels with a laden displacement of up to 7,500kg (16,500lbs).

When correctly installed, the right tiller pilot will provide years of dependable service and will quickly become a valued member of the crew. Remember to always use fully laden displacement which is often 20% above the designed displacement. Do not choose a pilot which is always working at the limits of its designed capabilities. Choose your pilot with safety in mind to avoid any struggle when the going gets tough.

    Comments about Raymarine SmartPilot X-5 Tiller Pilot Corepack:

    I've used these units since they were Autohelm, then Raytheon, now Raymarine. I have a 10 ton sailboat which can be steered with this unit until about 15 knots wind. Then I change to wind vane.
    After about 10k miles, the motor burns out from overload or water reaching motor. I use silicone grease , not caulk, to area around where wires enter drive motor.
    I actually had one unit which lasted a circumnavigation, altho I used it only under motor. Face up to it, with limited units available of this power, we're fortunate one works this well.
    The other option of using a cheap pilot hooked up to your wind vane will work well indeed, until you wear out the vane or your rudder gudgeons.
    I carry two, and cannibalize to keep one working always.
