The next-generation SailTimer Wind Instrument

  • Wireless (easy to install).
  • Solar-powered renewable energy; can run day & night indefinitely.
  • Submersible.
  • Innovative wind cup blades maintain equal accuracy when sailing heeled over.
  • The best features, and also the lowest price on the market: on sale for US $ 349.99.
  • The first masthead anemometer with a digital compass right in the wind direction arrow.
  • That means you even get wind direction while docked or swinging at anchor, when GPS heading is not available.
  • With new features in app updates on iOS & Android, the Wind Instrument actually becomes more useful over time.
  • 2016 version shown above adds an off-switch for storage, new antenna arrangement for tall masts, and incredibly thin tail electronics with solar panels 40% thinner and rest of trailing edge just 3.5 mm (0.13").  Full details.
  • The only masthead anemometer that works with rotating masts.
  • No base unit required.
  • For sailboats of all sizes, from keelboats to centerboard racing dinghies and even small multihulls (no 12-volt battery required).
  • Small vertical design rather than the common horizontal structure, to deter large seabirds.
  • Masthead mount or portable with small adapter for 1/4" tripod / Gorillapod / GoPro mount.
  • Battery uses advanced design for unusually wide temperature range from tropical heat down to -40 degrees (C/F).
  • We made the first-ever masthead anemometer that transmits to mobile devices, and this is our newest version.
  • Designed to work with third-party apps and hardware using the industry-standard NMEA 0183 format.
  • Accessory for plugging in to on-board wired marine electronics.
  • Wind direction equally sensitive all the way around;  no dead band at the end of the rotation as in wind direction sensors with potentiometers.
  • Transmits every second:  twice as fast as our previous version.
  • The first-ever masthead anemometer with crowd-sourcing of live wind maps.
  • Amazing mounting options to raise the anemometer after your boat is in the water, without having to lower or climb the mast.
