Gulfstar 45 Hirsch - hydraulic steering?


We just bought a 45 Hirsch and i'm now researching to buy an autopilot for it. We want to buy a Garmin autopilot since most of the electronics on board are Garmin.
However, we need to know what kind of steering system the boat has. Asked the previous owner and he didn't know!
We noticed the steering arrangment under the master bed in the aft cabin, however, if it's hydraulic, i couldn't find any of the hydraulic system parts.

Does any one knows what steering system the 45 Hircsh carries?

Thank you
