In the marine market, finding high-quality, reasonably priced hydraulic trim tabs can be challenging. However, Mayfair Hydraulics After-Plane Trim Tabs are making waves with their exceptional design and performance.

Unmatched Build Quality and Installation

From the moment you unbox them, it’s clear that Mayfair Hydraulics After-Plane Trim Tabs are a cut above the rest. They are manufactured from premium quality, high-strength 535 Aluminum Magnesium alloy castings with deep-ribbed cross sections for enhanced strength and stress distribution. The use of 316 stainless steel hardware and powder-coated components ensures increased corrosion resistance, making these trim tabs a reliable choice for any marine environment.

What sets these trim tabs apart is their seamless integration into your boat as direct replacement for Mercury K-Planes, eliminating the need to drill unsightly new mounting holes. This design leads to a simpler, faster, and cleaner installation process when replacing old K-Planes, which any boater can appreciate.

Precision Control and Performance

One of the standout features of the Mayfair Hydraulics After-Plane Trim Tabs is the ability to operate each tab independently through dash-mounted controls. The unique hydraulic system is designed to prevent any “droop” due to hydraulic leakage, ensuring that the trim tabs remain locked in position until you decide to adjust them. This level of precision control translates to substantial improvements in performance, fuel economy, stability, and handling.

Comprehensive and Thoughtful Kit

The After-Planes come with everything you need for installation, including two hydraulic pumps with heavy-duty mounting brackets, trim hoses, and all necessary hardware. The inclusion of electronic sensors for the Mayfair LED Trim Indicator Systems is a thoughtful touch, providing accurate feedback on the trim position. Provisions for older style cable driven indicators are also an option.

Feature Highlights

  • High-Strength Construction: Made from 535 Aluminum Magnesium alloy.
  • Durable Hardware: All 316 Stainless Steel components.
  • Enhanced Hydraulics: 1-1/2″ piston bore and two-way hydraulics for improved performance.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Zinc anodes to prevent corrosion.
  • Lift Surface: Over 250 square inches of lift surface.
  • Complete Kit: Includes trim pumps (137-8021) with bulkhead brackets, trim hoses, and trim switch panel.

Versatility and Integration

These trim tabs are suitable for boats ranging from 25 to 40 feet, making them a versatile option for various boating needs. To integrate this system with Garmin or other Smartcraft/NMEA2000 compatible screens, the 137-8659 adapter box is required. If not using a Smartcraft/NMEA2000 display, a corresponding Mayfair Indicator System is necessary to display the trim tab position.

These kits also include a provision for an underwater LED light option which makes them truly shine!

Final Thoughts

Mayfair Hydraulics After-Plane Trim Tabs deliver on their promise of high performance and durability. Since installing them on my boat, I’ve noticed a marked improvement in handling, stability, and fuel efficiency. The ease of installation and the precision control provided by these trim tabs make them a standout choice for any serious boater. If you’re looking to enhance your boating experience, I highly recommend the Mayfair Hydraulics After-Plane Trim Tabs. They are truly the best in the market today.
