yamaha navigation systemYamaha’s most advanced technological solutions are found in the Premium and High Power segments, where the pair of outboards have made these models the preferred choice for larger boats, in line with market trends.

In recent years, Yamaha Motor has also become one of the leading brands for navigation systems, applying its technology not only to outboard engines but to every element of a boat.

From the operations center of the control systems to the precision sensitivity of the gauges, Yamaha offers a complete solution that guarantees maximum enjoyment on the water.

Helm Master EX: intuitive and intelligent control

The Helm Master EX system is suitable for every model, from RIBs to larger boats and uses an intuitive joystick control system.

Customers will appreciate the smooth, precise and effortless operation of engines from XTO 425PS V8 models up to 150PS models via Digital Electric Steering (DES).

These navigation systems are synchronized with GPS, while the autopilot allows participants to relax and enjoy every moment of the journey. Added to this is the peace of mind of being able to count on the security provided by the electronic key.

The news of Helm Master EX

Yamaha Motor today announced further enhancements to this control system, with a number of innovative solutions that make the boating experience unforgettable.

Complete control

Helm Master EX joystick controlUsers can now count on a better position to manage the mooring and maneuvering phases in confined spaces.

In fact, it is possible to add a second or third Helm Master EX joystick in any position on the boat, without the need to add a remote control and wheelhouse. The options are increased and the number of components is reduced.

An ideal novelty for those who often find themselves maneuvering in confined spaces, where visibility can be limited by the boat itself.

A joystick can be placed directly on the aft deck or, for larger flybridges, on a wing station.

The update also includes new preconfigured steering patterns for the Helm Master EX system. Meanwhile, adjustments to the auto trim function make it even easier to achieve peak performance and efficiency while underway.

Comfort and safety

The captain and crew can spend even more relaxing days, thanks to the enhanced lateral assistance, that offers a better compensation for the effect of wind and tide, while keeping the bow in the original direction.

Yamaha Helm Master EX offers the boat’s skipper a wealth of information, all in one place.

Accurate route and distance data is at your fingertips thanks to the CL5 color multifunction instrument, which now includes the position of the trim tab and the Helm Master EX – SetPoint ™ system.

A complete navigation experience
