Joystick Docking for Volvo Penta IPS

Joystick Docking makes docking easier and safer. The operator just pushes or rotates the joystick in the desired direction and the boat follows: forward, reverse, sideways, or spins on its own axis. It’s simple and logical, and all maneuvers are totally intuitive.


Easy, high-precision docking

Shift, throttle and steering wheel combinations are no longer needed when docking a vessel. With Joystick Docking, every docking maneuver is rapid and exact.

How it works

The Volvo Penta IPS uses individually steerable pod units. Sophisticated software in the Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) system transforms the operators’s joystick movements into steering angles, gearshifts and throttle positions for intuitive maneuverability at both low and high speeds.

Flexible and easy to install

Up to six Joystick Docking stations can be installed on the vessel for maximum flexibility. The system is designed to reduce the amount of wires and connectors for easy installation.


Joystick Docking for Volvo Penta IPS is one of several smart options integrated in Volvo Penta’s Electronic Vessel Control that help make boating easier and more environmentally friendly.
