Raft Wiki

Starting June 25, 2022, Raft Wiki will be removing French and German content from this wiki, as they duplicate content found on their separate wikis (French and German Raft Wikis).

Thank you for your support.

The Steering Wheel is a Navigation item in Raft.


The Steering Wheel is acquired through the Blueprint: Steering Wheel found on the Vasagatan. After researching the blueprint, players may build and place a Steering Wheel, allowing them to rotate their Raft in any direction they wish. It does not need any power. The Steering Wheel is best used in combination with an Engine, as the player would still be reliant on wind and Sail without it.

When releasing the wheel towards upright position, the steering wheel will automatically reset itself to avoid drifting slightly off course.


  • Turn the Steering Wheel to change which direction your Raft is pointing.
  • The Raft will keep turning as long as the Steering Wheel is not reset to upright position.
