Yanmar Joystick Control


Yanmar America has jumped on the marine industry’s increasingly popular joystick bandwagon with the introduction of its new joystick control system at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show in February. The joystick lets boaters effortlessly execute sideways and diagonal movement, as well as complete rotation within a boat length to assist in docking and other maneuvers. It includes the entire control system, steering controls, color digital displays with NMEA2000 or J1939 gauge output, and all cabling and wiring.

Part of Yanmar’s self-designed Vessel Control System, the joystick works with the new Yanmar 8LV 320 hp and 370 hp diesel sterndrives in twin applications. Additional joystick control products are planned for other Yanmar diesel engine models.
