As a dealer, you may have heard your buyers talk about their boats slowing down from maximum speed and settling at the stern, or “squatting.” This occurrence creates an inefficient, untrimmed boating condition and deprives boaters of a pleasant experience. Boats in untrimmed conditions require more fuel to drive, create a “hill of water” when moving forward, and give captains limited visibility due to the bow-high position while the hull bottom is being pounded. This results in a boat that lists to one side, upsetting passengers. Fortunately, there is a solution. Trim Tab technology is designed to compensate for changing conditions on the water, giving boats lift to run at the best possible attitude.
Optimum Durability and Premium Performance with BOLT
Squatting, hull drag, and low fuel economy are undesirable boating experiences. To solve the issue, Bennett Marine has both hydraulic and electric trim tab solutions. While we are most commonly known for our hydraulic trim tabs, Bennett Marine launched the BOLT electric trim tab system in 2014 to expand our product line, making us the only trim tab manufacturer that offers both hydraulic and electric systems. Bennett BOLT tabs are more advanced than other options on the market and are designed for the boater seeking a premium boating experience. This system uses state of the art technology to ensure optimum performance.
BOLT Variations Meet Every Boater’s Needs
There are several variations of BOLT Electric Trim Tab Kits which help balance loads, get your boat on plane faster, and increase efficiency and performance. BOLT Electric—Edge Mount Trim Tab Kits are designed with an adjustable upper hinge for transoms with limited vertical space (only requiring 7” of available vertical transom space for installation). The Edge Mount tabs turn up for added strength and feature piano-hinged backing plates. The Lenco-to-BOLT Upgrade Conversion Kit includes everything necessary for a cost-effective, quick and easy upgrade from Lenco actuators to Bennett’s exceptionally durable and dependable actuators. The hydraulic-to-BOLT Electric Conversion Kit also provides all you need for a quick and easy trim tab conversion.
Bennett Marine: A World-Wide Reputation for Quality
Bennett trim tab systems are lower cost than those of other companies, saving boaters 3-5% on average over equivalent models. We also provide first class customer and product support, and a trim tab system that is easy to install.
Conditions on the water can be unpredictable and affect the balance load, planning speed, efficiency, and performance of boats. Bennett originally invented trim tabs in 1959 to increase efficiency, performance, and safety. This commitment to excellence, durability, and reliability has earned Bennett Trim Tab a world-wide reputation for quality. BOLT Electric trim tabs were built with over half a century of trim tab system engineering experience to provide boaters with exceptional durability in an electric system.
