Chosen from among a landslide of nominations, Schmitt & Ongaro Marine’s Torcello Elite steering wheel has been named a 2022 Boating Industry Top Product of the Year. It was selected by the US recreational marine industry publication’s editors for its innovation, impact on the industry and how it advanced its category.
Few things on a boat have the power to convey a sense of luxury as much as the steering wheel. The Torcello Elite does just that. Wrapped in hand-stitched marine-grade synthetic leather, it delivers a hand feel that matches that of a premium automobile. Designed to be customized in quantity to match virtually any boat interior, the 35.5cm polyurethane wheel can be manufactured in an endless array of leather and stitching color combinations. The three thick stainless steel spokes are available in polished or black anodized finishes to enhance the décor. A choice of attractive center caps are offered, including OEM-branded. NMMA certified and CE marked, it’s available with a 19mm tapered or optional splined hub.
“We’re pleased to receive this recognition from the editors of Boating Industry,” said Watson “Roby” Holland, VP of sales and marketing. “As we were developing the Torcello Elite, we knew it would be unique within the industry, but to be acknowledged with a Top Product award is a huge honor.”
