Docking is probably the most stressful aspect of boating. As part of our continuous effort to make life on the water easier, in January Volvo Penta announced Assisted Docking, a new technology that allows you to compensate for wind and current, as well as maneuver in tight spaces – taking much of the stress out of the docking process.
The launch of this game-changing technology at the largest and most influential tech event in the world, CES, got Volvo Penta nominated for two awards – in the “Transportation” and “Most Unexpected Product” categories.
Starting in 2021, the technology will gradually be available with our complete IPS system range. That’s why on March 18th at 14:00 CET we’re hosting an online webcast entirely dedicated to the technology, with product demos, leading experts and more.
During this one-hour session, our leaders and experts will tackle some of the hottest topics around the world’s first fully-integrated docking technology – engaging in live discussions with Erik Stromberg, Power & Motoryacht Product Director, Beneteau; Marco Valle, CEO, Azimut | Benetti Group; and Dave O'Connell, Head of Sales & Marketing, Tiara Yachts.
Volvo Penta’s Head of the Marine Segment Johan Inden, and Vice President Brand, Communications and Marketing Malin Schwartz, will take viewers behind the scenes at our marine test facility, to see where we put Assisted Docking to the test and get a glimpse of the first yachts in the world to test this new technology.
