The Silva 125T is a pedestal compass designed for larger boats and yachtsmen who demand absolute accuracy and a steady card in all conditions and heeling angles. This compass is suitable for most larger sailing boats and motor yachts and owing to the effective dampening of the compass card, it is the correct choice even for larger speedboats.
The compass permits up to 45° heeling and unlimited tilting fore and aft. The two extra lubber lines at 45° offset permit reading from the rail or an off steering position mounting. The lubber lines are counter-balanced and will remain vertical even in rough seas. All lubber lines are easily read through the patented transparent compass card. A sighting peg from the centre eliminates parallax errors and facilitates off course bearings.
125T has an apparent scale size of 125 mm, a gimballed cradle and the standard 175mm base plate fits most steering pedestals. Further features include the possibility to compensate for magnetic field disturbance and it is also possible to add a heeling compensator. The integrated illumination in the adjustable protection cover offers ideal night vision.
The Silva quality ensures durability and excellent readability; the capsule bowl is made from clear and scratch resistant acrylic. The combination of a sapphire jewel bearing and a hardened steel pivot minimizes friction, which in turn gives rapid and accurate movements. Silva marine compasses have a no-spin compass card is designed for perfect dampening and exact reading. You can trust that even when your boat is exposed to rough seas the gimballed suspension system makes sure the functionality is never disturbed hence you will always be able to read the compass accurately.
