Jeanneau is among the early pioneers of the joystick, with the deployment on powerboats of this new technology developed with engine suppliers.
For over 10 years, Jeanneau has developed hulls specifically for inboard models that are perfectly compatible with joystick control systems, which continue revolutionise cruising by greatly facilitating docking. With just the touch of a finger, the boat can be pointed in any direction (forward, aft, laterally or diagonally), and docking becomes a child’s game.
First developed for the PRESTIGE brand for Pod transmissions systems (Volvo IPS or Cummins ZEUS), this technological breakthrough was very quickly adopted by Jeanneau for its Leader and NC lines, with the development of joystick solutions for Sterndrive.
Today, Jeanneau continues to advance these technologies in order to ease handling and simplify docking. In the future, outboard Jeanneau models will also benefit from the advantages of joystick steering capabilities. This is already the case for the Cap Camarat 10.5 WA , equipped with Helmaster technology developed by our partner, Yamaha. .
