Zeus Pod Drives is the reason why Mikelson Yachts' custom fishing boats reach its level of performance.
Zeus pod propulsion delivers a whole new level of performance, fuel efficiency, protection and vessel control. With SmartCraft innovation throughout, Zeus provides a seamless approach to propulsion technology, marine electronics, and on-board information management that makes boating safer and more enjoyable than ever. Zeus Pod Drives offers dramatically improved high-speed handling and delivers up to:
30% improved fuel efficiency
15% increased cruise speed
15% increased max speed
Docking without fear:
Never worry again about wind and current when you approach the dock on a Mikelson custom fishing boat equipped with the Zeus Pod Drives. Our 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. Whether at the dock or backing down on a blue marlin, the total authority and maneuverability is simply unmatched.
Zeus Pod Drives 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.
Sky Hook – "Anchor-Less Anchoring"
Imagine having the ability to pull up to a busy fuel dock in your custom fishing boat and wait in line without having to constantly tend to your controls to stay in place. With the touch of a button, our Skyhook™ feature maintains your vessel on a fixed heading within a tight area - even in strong currents and windy conditions.
