Panther XPS Power Steering

The Panther XPS Power Steering System by MarineTech Products is a hybrid steering system that combines the durability and dependability of cable steering with the ease of automobile-like power steering.

MTcyNTIyNzUwMzExNjcwODY3

The Panther XPS Power Steering eliminates the effect of prop torque, allowing for easy maneuvering in tight quarters as well as safe and controlled turns at high speeds.

Because it works with the boat’s cable steering, in the unlikely event of system failure the system will revert to cable steering, allowing the operator to safely return to home base.

Panther Outboard Motor Brackets

Panther outboard brackets lead the industry in quality and variety of finish, materials and horsepower ratings.

Panther Safe-Skeg

Whether you are looking to protect your new skeg, repair a damaged one or even just add some ‘bling’. Safe-Skeg is made of 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Construction and installs in minutes.

The included Install Kit includes: Mounting hardware, instructions, allen wrench and Loctite 262.

Our packaging is second to none. Clearly showing the model and motor application on the front, placed in a blister tray and stapled together for easy repackaging if needed and written in English, Spanish, French and German.

View the video below for a walk though on how to install.
