And the winner is...

The DAME Jury is always on the look out for clever design solutions that challenge the status quo to deliver obvious improvements for boat owners and builders. There were several examples this year but the standout winner was Jefa’s Steering Traveller. This product removes the need for bulky steering quadrants and improves rudder feedback at the helm for twin rudder, twin wheel sailing yachts.

Special attention has been paid to save installation space and weight as well as to eliminate backlash, hence improving yacht handling.

The Jury appreciated the elegance of Jefa’s approach to this application – a commendable example of how current practice can be examined and redesigned to produce tangible improvement.
