Depending on the boat it graces, the new powder-coated Primus steering wheel from Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products can be tactical, race-inspired, sophisticated or rebellious. Made from cast stainless steel with a deep, rich, durable powder coated finish, the bold look instantly becomes the focal point of any dash and defines the style of the entire vessel. Black is the standard color, with others available upon request.

The powder-coated Primus is made using a unified investment casting surrounding an integrated steel ring. It's so incredibly strong, it easily exceeds ABYC P-22 and ISO 8848 standards, and comes with a lifetime warranty for corrosion and structural integrity.

The marine grade 316L stainless steel is meticulously finished prior to powder coating. The result is a lustrous finish that's impervious to weather, with little maintenance needed.

Available in 34cm and 39cm diameters, the finger-grooved rim of the Primus is thicker than most othersa generous 28mm wide. Combined with UV-resistant black Santoprene rubber inserts that show through the top and bottom of the wheel's rim, it provides utmost control, and delivers all-day cushioned comfort. It's offered in three spoke patterns: solid, slotted and slotted with matching Santoprene inserts.

Powder coated in the same attractive color as the wheel, the ergonomic control knob features corrosion-resistant glass ball bearings for trouble-free spinning. It's mounted away from the outside edge of the rim to keep it from catching on clothing and gear.

The powder-coated Primus comes with a 19mm tapered shaft. Its center nut fits all standard marine steering systems.

Like all Schmitt & Ongaro steering wheels, the powder-coated Primus may be customized by OEMs. A range of Santoprene colors are available, and the knob or center nut can be engraved with the boatbuilder's logo.
