Self-leveling radar mount eliminates target loss

Self-Levelling Radar

Feb 1, 2022

Any sailor who has spent time at a radar screen knows the unsettling feeling of potentially missing targets to port and starboard as the boat heels. With a Self-Leveling Radar Mount from Questus Marine, previously unseen vessels, squalls and hazards to navigation suddenly become visible.

Made in the USA, the Questus Self-Leveling Radar Mount can be used with a wide range of radar types including broadband, pulse and high definition. The mount is hydraulically-dampened to prevent oscillation. This gives signals ample time to reflect back to the unit as the radar beam remains aligned to the horizon.

The Questus Self-Leveling Radar Mount is easily installed on a mast or 4″ stern pole, or on a standard, split or hydraulically adjustable backstay. Its mounting plate fits most marine radars without modification. The device is aesthetically pleasing, doesn’t create undue windage aloft and operates smoothly in a wide range of temperatures.

Two models of the Questus Self-Leveling Radar Mount are available. The 300G is designed for radomes up to 24″, mounts to a mast or pole, and costs $1,399 USD. Version 400G accommodates radomes up to 18″, installs facing forward or aft on a backstay, and runs $1,999 USD. Questus Marine is part of the Sudbury Boat Care Products and Albin Group family of companies.
