Mercury Marine in EMEA to offer joystick piloting solution

Verviers (Belgium), 1 February 2021. Mercury Marine in EMEA is pleased to announce that it will offer joystick piloting on all V-6 3.4L outboards with Digital Throttle and Shift.

Mercury and Dometic have collaborated and worked together to provide a fully validated joystick package for installation on all Mercury’s 175, 200 and 225hp FourStroke outboard engines. With the launch of this offering, Mercury will bring joystick piloting to a broader audience. Boaters who are interested in boat packages outfitted with dual 175hp, 200hp or 225hp outboards will have access to joystick controls.

In addition to joystick docking and manoeuvring, the system allows the driver to hold a boat in position, hold its heading, or hold its position and heading simultaneously. For EMEA, the product will be exclusively available through the Mercury Marine channel from February 2021 onwards. In 2013, Mercury introduced Joystick Piloting for Outboards, the first of its kind in the marine marketplace. It remains the most precise system on the market and the only system from helm to stern designed to work with a Mercury engine.
