INNOVATION – ACCURACY – RELIABILITY – SAFETY
For 30 years nke has been developing innovative instrument systems dedicated to navigation and performance. Whatever your program, should it be racing or cruising, solo or crewed, nke instruments are designed to answer all your needs at every level.
Performance, accuracy and simple, intuitive operation are always kept in mind by our development team to achieve the best information and performance. nke is the best choice you can make for your boat and will result in a smart and advanced system with options to upgrade through our service partners network anytime. The most prestigious victories of the season have proved our pedigree. A big thank you to all who participated in this success.
Data carried by the bus is displayed with channel id and units.
Their cruising system is built around the pilot to bring the best comfort and safety. The gyrometer integrated in the Gyropilot’s processor ensures quick response and course stability.
Optimum safety and comfort: the autopilot has been proven whilst steering Vendee Globe boats for 95% of the race even in the roughest conditions.
Ease of use: one single display, the Multigraphic or the Gyropilot Graphic controls the autopilot while displaying navigation data and AIS targets.
For your safety, they offer MOB device connected to the system. Bearing and distance to event are displayed on every multifunction display. The system sends a M.O.B. sentence via the NMEA output to all compatible navigation software applications such as Adrena, MaxSea, Expedition…

Top sailors choose nke because our instrument systems are made with the most advanced technologies available. They know that our innovative R and D team is quick to determine how new technologies can bring performance benefits to our products. Once assessed as beneficial they are tested and incorporated keeping nke instruments out in front
WiFi interface for iPhone/iPad: The WiFi protocol is used to broadcast all data available on the bus in NMEA format to iPads, iPhones or PCs.
The nke Display app is the perfect option to use your iPhone or iPad as a great help to decision making: one page dedicated to wind shifts and course trend, a true wind direction history graph and an environment history graph.
nke have designed High Resolution wind sensor, 5.7’’ colour screen with LED technology and processors to give you accurate performance data for your tactical decisions. For your safety, they offer MOB device connected to the system
The Gyropilot was developed by nke in 1995. This was the first autopilot for sailboats featuring a gyro meter. This innovation combined with the nke sensors allowed autopilots to steer the boats downwind, under spinnaker.
Since then, the nke autopilot has become the first choice for race boats and it has been used by all the winners of the VENDEE GLOBE.
The nke HR autopilot is a market references: 1st place in the Vendée Globe 2008, 1st place in the Class 40 Route du Rhum 2010, 1st place in the Mini transat 2009, to name a few. The reputation of the nke autopilot has been strong for more than two decades and the best solo sailors know that they can rely on a strong partner even in rough sea.
