Livorsi Marine introduced the all new Platinum Series throttles, which they say are designed to be more ergonomically comfortable to the operator while being lighter and more compact for fitting into tight spaces.

The Platinum series is finished with a two-coat process which helps prevent corrosion and can be configured for single or multiple engine's for drives, transmissions, jet drives or buckets. The throttles are available in three throttle/shift configurations: fully mechanical, fully electric or hybrid mechanical/electric.

The Platinum Series has three customizable styles: standard series for the classic look, billet series for racing performance look and the arched series for the modern performance look.

All three new styles allow the user to choose a throttle base in flat or new contoured base; available in an array of colors, chrome or carbon fiber. Further finish the throttles with a choice of one, two or three switches in the knob to actuate your drive, tabs, jack plate, etc. The knobs are available in 12 different color options.

  • These controls are compatible with throttle, shift, jet drives or buckets (one function per handle), 33C or 43C cables
  • There are three different styles to choose from- Standard, Billet or Arched
  • Billet aluminum construction makes these controls tough yet lightweight
  • Corrosion Resistant, two layers of protection- anodized base coat, powder coat finish
  • Shorter base depth: mechanical and hybrid units measure 8.125" deep, electric units measure 6.5"
  • Ergonomic knobs for long hours of comfortable operation
  • Controls feature friction and detent that may be adjusted while installed on your helm
  • Flat base and the optional contour base color options include chrome, simulated carbon fiber or a powder coat finish

Configurations include one or any combination of the below:

  • The use of mechanical 33C or 43C cables for mechanical levers
  • Electric configurations use compact direct driven angular sensors - 0-5 Volt electronic sensors or a PWM signal
  • The use of a micro switch - for electronic transmission shifting
  • Single, twin and triple in-handle trim switch available as shown on the chrome control above
  • Check with the engine manufacturer or Livorsi Marine for electric control compatibility
