Lecomble & Schmitt, the only French manufacturer of hydraulic steering systems for pleasure and professional boats, will celebrate the company’s 70th birthday this year. LS extends its thanks to all its professional clients and users for their trust in and loyalty to the company.

At the beginning of 2017 Lecomble & Schmitt informed you of the release of a new steering wheel tilt system “tilt HB5” in versions 26 and 30 cc/turn.

As the most compact tilt system on the market, it is today available in 6 different cubic capacities from 20 to 50 cc/turn, the same capacities as for L.S range of outboard helm pumps.

With each one of these models it is possible to orientate the steering wheel within 5 available positions from -24° to + 24°, thus providing a greater steering comfort, whatever the position of the operator.

With this tiller for LS outboard cylinders (VHM EX 80 et 3500 HP), the boat can be steered from the motor.

Thanks to this function, the motor can easily be operated without having to resort to the steering wheel (for various fishing actions, anchorage, watch and emergency tiller if need be). Equipped with a quick coupling, the tiller can be fitted and removed easily and stored in a locker. Manufactured in stainless steel tube, its weight does not exceed 0.8 kg. Do not use at a speed exceeding 6 knots.

Lecomble & Schmitt resolves the adaptation of its helm pumps and hydraulic pipes on the EVINRUDE E-TEC G2 outboard motor range by proposing specific fittings.

The integration of this equipment between the motor manufacturer fittings and LS piping is quick and simple with no special tools required.

Lecomble & Schmitt – key player in the market – demonstrates once more its capacities to adapt.

The first energy self-sufficient boat was launched on 14th April 2017 in Saint Malo waters. In July this catamaran, named “Energy Observer” will set out on a tremendous challenge!

The boat has indeed the ambitious project to become the symbol of energy mix management. In a six-year journey around the world, completely autonomously by means of its hydrogen propulsion and renewable energies (wind power and solar energy), the “Solar Impulse” of the seas aims to be at the forefront of a genuine energy revolution.

We are proud to be a supplier for this innovative project. The catamaran hydraulic steering system is supplied by LS. This equipment meets the requirements of such a challenge for smooth, efficient and reliable navigation.

Lecomble & Schmitt wishes fair winds to Energy Observer!
