Zues Pod Performance Information
30% improved fuel economy - 15% faster cruise speed - 15% faster top speed
Never worry again about wind and current when you approach the dock. The advanced joystick control system is incredibly intuitive and can be operated with a single turn of the wrist. One hand controls it all, from sideways tracking to spinning on a dime, to precise speed control. Zeus features rear-facing propellers and a tunnel-mounted design that protects the pod drive from underwater debris. Most floating objects will be deflected downward by the keel and skeg, away from the propellers. Should the unit come into contact with a substantial object, the skeg is designed to shear below the torpedo, minimizing damage to the drive and costly repair bills.
