Latest Helm Master® integrated boat control system now features 3-mode SetPoint™ system and new CL7™ display
When you have pioneered the development and production of the most advanced outboard engines in the world - and you offer your customers the widest and most ideal model line-up, with clean, smooth, economical 4-stroke outboard power to suit every possible application, what's the next step? Even greater control over their operation, particularly for multiple installations on larger boats.
At Yamaha, the development of digital systems has been moving at an impressive pace for many years and the launch of the original Helm Master was widely recognized as a true landmark – introducing a new level of fully integrated, precise control for larger boats with multiple outboards. Owners around the world have been delighted with the precise positioning and intuitive control provided by the Helm Master joystick system and the other advantages of the Drive-by-Wire concept. In fact, many say it has transformed their boating, bringing a fresh relaxation and enjoyment to their on-water activities.
But now comes a second revolution! With the launch of the very latest Helm Master, Yamaha introduces not only its new and unique SetPoint™ system but alongside it, the impressive new CL7™ colour display.
The unique power of SetPoint™
The key to SetPoint™ is the inspired concept of linking GPS navigation technology to the well-proven Helm Master system, thus bringing positioning accuracy and boat control to a level never known before and in fact, unparalleled in the leisure marine industry. What is more, this sophisticated system is further refined by the use of a dual-antenna GPS – unique to Yamaha – which delivers more navigational data to the operating system, resulting in even more precise control.
The three SetPoint modes: STAYPOINT™ • FISHPOINT™ • DRIFTPOINT™
