Get Bennett Onboard and Adjust your Attitude!

Classic hydraulic tabs are ideal for boats that stay in the water, requiring high speed action under extreme marine conditions. Choosing the right sized trim tab for your boat depends on power, engine configuration, weight distribution, the type of boat and how it’s used. With more options than any other trim tab manufacturer, Bennett is ready to help you select a size and style that fits your needs.

The Actuator –Superior by Design

Bennett actuators are strong, flexible nylon/fiberglass hydraulic cylinders that push the tabs into position. All hydraulic lines and wires are internal, concealed by the upper hinge, so they’re not exposed to harsh environments.

Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU)

The HPU is a compact, powerhouse pump that creates hydraulic pressure to operate the trim tabs.
