Volvo Penta and Yamaha to Develop Outboard Joystick Controls

Volvo Penta and Yamaha Motors have announced that they have signed a technical agreement for the joint development of joystick control systems for outboard-powered boats.

The engine-control systems that will be developed under the agreement include single remote control for outboard boats with multiple engines. If successful, the new product would combine power and steering control in one easy-to-use, electronic device. The intention is to greatly improve maneuverability and ease of docking for larger boats that use outboard power.
