The perfect match


Straathof Controls is an expert in marine engine controls and offers a series of control stations to accompany the ZF propulsion control systems. Every control station is compatible with ZF Marine propulsion control systems, and all levers are of ergonomic design. Most levers are water tight and the systems come with a metal housing, especially for commercial shipping. The ZF propulsion control systems are state-of-the-art for applications on commercial vessels and yachts. Just like the ZF control stations, the SSE Controls and Kwant Controls are all compatible with ZF propulsion controls and will be professionally installed by us. Futhermore, we install remote controls and special control panels. Find the standard stations here.
