By providing just the right speed and a superior ride, speed controls let ski and wakeboard boat operators relax and become more vigilant at the same time. Captains can concentrate on scanning the water ahead and keeping an eye on their fun-seekers aft rather than focusing on the throttle and gauges. This innovation has become so popular that virtually every towboat made today features speed control.
Founded in 1995 in Nova Scotia, PerfectPass got its start making precision speed controls for boats used in the tournament world, where fierce competition hones performance. Today, it serves tens of thousands of customers in more than 60 countries. Its speed control products use quality components like Garmin GPS for the ultimate in accuracy.
Bakes Marine carries a selection of PerfectPass marine cruise and speed controls so you can have more fun on the water. Whether you want to upgrade your boat or make replacements or repairs, we can get you the right part at a reasonable price.
You will find products here aimed primarily at tournament water skiers, like the StarGazer 3 Event. We also carry items focused on intermediate wakeboarders, like the StarGazer Wake Edition Upgrade Kit, which features plug-and-play installation.
Finding the perfect part for a PerfectPass product isn't a problem when you shop here. GPS-accurate speed displays are available to replace practically any boat dash speedometer. We also stock replacement servo motors for use on all PerfectPass mechanical cruise control systems. If you want to save some dough, you can repair rather than replace your paddle wheel with one of our paddle wheel repair kits.
