consoles

I am putting a new 7.5 Vipermax together but can`t decide on the console Osprey have a new console in the pipeline but it could be a while before it`s ready so I`m looking into alternatives.I want something a bit higher than the norm as we tend to stand more than sit.Outhill have got something almost right but are well overpriced. Has anyone got any suggestions?
Thanks

What height do you need? We have one that comes in two heights.

Hi

This is the Neptune Consul that we use on the Parkers, would something along these lines interest you? if so I can work you out a price and give you the footprint of the consul so you can check it out for size. Obviously the helm could be on either side.

Try Tim or Jason Here: Great blokes to deal with and a couple of taller design consoles to choose from. They are very reasonably priced with an after sales service second to none! One other bonus being that they are local to gods Isle... in the NW.

Our console pictured above is 840 wide and 1000 long and can come in 1200 high including the wind deflector - with that design you can wear a baseball hat at over 60 mph and not have it fly off! Let us know what sort of seat and locker arrangement you need and I'll see if we have something that will suit you!

Have you seen the Windsor Bros console that Andy Hightower has used on his new build?

I suppose the important thing about a stand up consul is the height the wheel is at. You want the wheel to arrive at a natural height for your hands.

In France everybody uses stand up consuls but I don't think that it's that good. You could look at Zodiac who do them with a built in 'suicide' seat.

How about this.

1000mm long X 1200 wide X 1100mm high. Comes with a reveal for your legs or without if you want. No forward seat though, just a gaping big hole to access all your wiring, batteries and gear.

I also had dividers glassed in the bottom to seperate batteries from oil tank from fuel tank. I'll be putting a false floor in and using the storage space above this for my normal everyday boating gear.

They also have a larger console and one with a door in the back for a cabin Rib if you like.

This is the first Osprey with the Winsor console, I know of one other definate 6.5m and 1 other possible Osprey that have been ordered with this type of console.

Good on price too.
