Lewmar's innovative and patented six spoke Folding Wheel is now available. 

Its unique, fast-action folding system is a brand new concept in space-saving technology. Conventional wheels significantly restrict your cockpit space, but the Lewmar Folding Wheel breaks down that barrier. 

Ideal for a wide range of yachts, including those with twin-wheeled layout. The Folding Wheel has a two-turn, buttress-threaded, split-spoke design, and a unique hinging system with fast-action handgrip release. This allows you to easily fold and unfold the wheel, using a simple twist of the composite handgrip. At a fraction of the cost of custom versions, the Folding Wheel is appealing to both production boat builders and owners looking to improve their deck layouts.

Supplied as a Dual Hub version, which enables fitting to standard Lewmar Whitlock tapered steering shaft or 1" parallel steering shaft. Brown leather fitted as standard.

Lewmar Folding Wheel May 05, 2010
from Toronto
My wife has already said she looks forward to better at the dock parties because we have gained so much cockpit space! No question the Catalina 36 is a great boat but the fixed wheel definitely restricted movement.

Boat just launched so I can't comment on the wheel under sail other than to say it feels rigid when folded out and should work fine.

Wheel arrived promptly and installed easily.

I attached my ST 4000 autohelm without any difficulties or need for any of the additional adjustments to the connection I had read elsewhere may have been required.
