OPTIMAL MANOEUVRING PERFORMANCE
The HD rudders provide an excellent manoeuvring performance, which is proven in practice and in the most stringent towing-tank trials. These high-efficiency rudders can be used with or without a nozzle. They have an asymmetrical profile and are always applied in a pair. The HD rudders have been especially developed for inland vessels in combination with a 2, 4 or 6 rudder propulsion set-up.
The HD rudders have asymmetric rudder angles up to 80 degrees, providing optimal slipstream guidance. With these rudder you are assured of an excellent manoeuvring performance, also with low velocity (speed). They have a maintenance-friendly design and a long lifespan.
The Van der Velden® Hydro spoiler for maximum performance. This spoiler improves the propulsion efficiency, increases speed and reduces vibrations and sounds.
- Inland vessels that require high manoeuvrability across a range of different sailing conditions (high and low water) and situations (canals, low speed manoeuvring).

2DWK Steering System
The 2DWK is a reliable asymmetric steering system, specifically engineered for the Van der Velden® HD and Van der Velden® XR rudder systems.
The 2DWK steering system is suitable for every type of vessel, but it is mainly designed for inland vessels.
4DWKK Steering System
The 4DWKK is a reliable asymmetric steering system, specifically engineered for the Van der Velden® HD and Van der Velden® XR rudder systems. The 4DWKK is specifically engineered for twin screw inland vessels with four rudders.
The BOSS™ eco system consists of a touchscreen display with integrated software, which continuously calculates and shows the steering behaviour in relation to the steering movements and rudder angles, aligned to the actual sailing situation.
