A Standard Cable is used to connect the main control panel to the distribution unit, usually located on or near the transom. This cable is also used to connect the main panel to the next panel, e.g. the flybridge.

Cable Cover:

Thru-hull cable fitting of Series S  can either be concealed  or positioned above the waterline.

Series S incorporates a state-of-the-art durable & fast-acting. This first-ever modular design that makes the interceptors durable, affordable and perfectly adapted to any planning or semi-planning boat between 6m and 18m (20-60ft). All components have been meticulously engineered to withstand impact and avoid water ingress, minimizing the risk of costly maintenance and downtime.

Blade actuation takes place by way of a calibration-free submersible electric servo within the interceptor unit. Its natural water cooling provides excellent working conditions for the brushless DC servo motor, which runs on 12-32 volts. The blade stroke takes 1.5 seconds, as a result outperforming conventional trim tabs by at least a factor of 5.


Installation of Zipwake KB450S Kit is made easy with an integral mounting plate and the option of a concealed or above-waterline, self-sealing, thru-hull cable fitting.

Preferred mounting option is achieved by simply routing the servo cable differently. Each interceptor comes with the thru-hull cable fitting, cable covers and a practical drill template.
