New YANMAR JC20 joystick system
YANMAR's common rail engine range is complemented by a choice of YANMAR controls, including the new JC20 joystick system for innovative maneuvering solutions.
Previewed in 2017, the easy-to-use JC20 is available from February 2018. It enables precise joystick maneuvering for twin straight shaft drive engine installations in combination with a bow thruster.
The new YANMAR control allows owners of motorboats, powerboats, and catamarans to dock accurately and smoothly by pressing the joystick in the desired direction. The JC20 automatically directs the speeds of the two engines and uses the thruster to precisely maneuver the boat.
The introduction of the JC20 completes YANMAR’s joystick control line up, already featuring the 4JH80 SPP (Steerable Propulsion Pod) joystick maneuvering system for large sailing yachts and the JC10 Joystick for twin sterndrive, all of which integrate directly with YANMAR engines.
