LEATHER-WRAPPED STEERING WHEEL IS THE ULTIMATE LUXURY

Few things on a boat have the power to convey a sense of luxury as much as the steering wheel. The new Torcello Elite from Schmitt & Ongaro Marine 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 14″ polyurethane Torcello Elite can be manufactured in an endless array of leather and stitching color combinations. The three thick aluminum spokes are available in polished or black anodized finishes to enhance the décor and a choice of attractive center caps are offered, including OEM-branded. It’s available with a 3/4″ tapered or optional splined hub.

Schmitt & Ongaro engineers partner with OEMs to design the Torcello Elite that best matches the boat model. Digital renderings provide visual confirmation to assist in the process.

Thoroughly tested, the Torcello Elite from Schmitt & Ongaro meets ABYC and NMMA standards; CE approval is pending. MSRP starts at $910.
