Joystick Docking

Joystick Docking makes docking easy and safe. The driver 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.


Close-quarter maneuvering made easy

Complicated shift, throttle and steering wheel combinations are no longer needed when docking a boat. Joystick Docking makes close-quarter maneuvering easy, even fun.

How it works

The Volvo Penta IPS uses individually steerable pod units. Sophisticated software in the Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) system transforms the driver’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 boat for maximum flexibility. The system is designed to reduce the amount of wires and connectors for easy installation.
