When you are sat at the helm, you immediately feel comfortable, secure and in control with the height-adjustable sports style steering wheel at a comfortable distance. The engine cover which is located underneath the console conveniently has footrest indents to really lock yourself in as a driver if you are throwing the boat around having some fun! On the steering wheel is the ever-alluring green Start button and Red Stop button. For me, this is the first thing you see when you take your seat – it is such an invitation and really sets the scene for the experience to come. Another noticeable difference is the Seakart does not have a throttle lever. Instead, the throttle is located on a paddle accelerator behind the steering wheel on the right hand side with the neutral / reverse paddle on the left. This gives a massive benefit that the driver can keep 2 hands on the steering wheel at all times rather than 1 on the steering wheel and one of the throttle lever like a traditional RIB. Having a paddle accelerator enhances the sports car feel – as the power is literally at your fingertips. Being able to keep both hands on the wheel also means that you can make full use of the accurate steering that The Seakart has. Instead of 2 or 3 turns of the wheel to achieve full lock, like most other boats, The Seakarts steering wheel only rotates one ¼ turn mimicking a racing car. The small movements of the wheel enables the driver to really throw The Seakart around and is great fun on a slalom course! Also on the steering wheel is the remote control for the Fusion audio system. The Fusion system is able to connect to your devices via Bluetooth, or USB located in the console, which is then easily controllable via the remote control. If you have the 180hp engine option, the engine trim will also be on the steering wheel – so everything you need is at hand. Lifting the console cover you reveal the instrument switched and removeable battery isolater key. Whenever you are leaving the Seakart, it is generally good practise to fully isolate the system, so it does not drain the battery, this is done by turning the battery isolator switch by a ¼ turn. Here you will also find the USB connection for the speaker system should you wish to connect your music that way instead of Bluetooth. In this console you can find the navigation lights, onboard or underwater light switches as well as the bilge pump and blower switches. Sat nicely on the either side of the console are the wing mirrors. These are most useful with towsports and for helping survey the surroundings for other vessels.
