Yanmar Introduces new Joystick Control System

Press Release
Friday, February 22, 2013

Last month, Yanmar Europe BV introduced its new Joystick Control System at the boot Düsseldorf 2013 show.

 

This was the first introduction and demonstration to the European Powerboat market. Compared to other vessel control systems, the Yanmar Joystick Control System is unique as it is the only hydraulic solution available on the market delivering high performance at affordable cost. Yanmar Joystick Control System is superior in comfort, performance and cost.
 
Wil Botman, Area Manager for the Marine Sales Department comments: “With the introduction of the Yanmar Joystick Control System modern boating becomes even more comfortable. Superior comfort is realized by the combining the Yanmar Joystick Control System with the Yanmar ZT370 stern drive with hydraulic clutch and the vibration-free Yanmar V8 Diesel. Parallel docking or docking in tight spaces, for example, is now extremely smooth and easy, just as diagonal movements or 360 turns are. Boats are easily rotated within their own length. The Yanmar Joystick Control System combined with Yanmar ZT370 Stern drives is superior to any other joystick system available on the market when it comes down to performance versus cost.”


Advanced features for extra smooth engagement

 

The Yanmar Joystick Control System is available for Yanmar 8LV engine models with 320hp and 370hp as twin installations in both leisure and commercial vessels. It is easily installed in new boats and is also quickly retrofitted to existing twin Yanmar 8LV installations. A connection to Autopilot systems of major navigation manufacturers is optional, ensuring even more advanced boating. Of course, the system is covered by Yanmar’s Global Service Network.  
 
Among its main features are:

  • Docking mode
  • Boost mode
  • Electronic progressive steering
  • Sideways movement
  • Diagonal movement
  • 360 Turn (rotation within a boat length)
  • Optional second and third station
