Becker Schilling® Rudder

The Becker Schilling® Rudder is a high-lift rudder with a specially developed fishtail profile offering improved manoeuvrability for vessels of all sizes and types. With its special design the Becker Schilling® combines the highest lateral forces with the best course stability. The rudder forces optimised by the fishtail design guarantee improved safety and efficiency.

It is available as a full spade rudder with optional KSR (King Support Rudder). Combined with a steering gear which is suitable for higher rudder angles, the Becker Schilling® can be used for all kinds of vessels operating in DP mode. Due to its specific design, the Becker Schilling® has no wear and tear parts, which also minimises servicing and maintenance costs.
