Our Blue Water Catalina 250 rudder is a massively strong rudder for offshore or other heavy weather use. It is extra long at 80" with a chord length of 15-1/2", 2" thick. This compares to 76" X 12" X 1-1/2 for our standard polyethylene rudder. This extra length keeps the rudder in the water even in heavy following or quartering seas. The greater chord length affords more control at high rudder loads. True NACA 0012 airfoil blade, balanced rudder for reduced helm effort. The high lift to low drag foil helps your boat to weather and increases speed off the wind. Docking and tacking are easier and crisper, giving you more control of your boat during low-speed maneuvers. This rudder includes a pair of our super-duty stainless pintles.

* Because this particular rudder is 2" thick requires a 2" wide butt end tiller for direct install. Or we can send you HDPE shim to use with your existing 1.5" wide tiller at no additional charge. We'll ship these shim automatically unless a new tiller is ordered with this rudder. *
Equip your new rudder with a new mahogany and white ash, laminated tiller. By ordering your tiller with your rudder, you will receive tiller brackets ($39), bolts ($3.75), and labor ($13) for free, which is a $55 value. This eight layered, laminated tiller comes ready-to-varnish with marine penetrating oil or choose to have your tiller varnished with premium UV resistant spar varnish for an additional $25. For a much superior seal, choose the Epoxy & Varnish option. The most common tiller used on a C250 is a style A and this style can be viewed on our Tiller Worksheet. Don't forget the tiller cover made from Pacific Blue Sunbrella, to protect your new tiller from the elements.
Tiller has a three year warranty and rudder has a lifetime warranty to the original owner.
*Please note tiller prices include additional shipping of $16 to places within the United States. Please call or inquire by email for shipping quotes outside of the United States.
