VETUS have collaborated with Mercury Marine to enable the integration of their BOW PRO thrusters with Mercury Joystick Piloting for Outboards.

The compatible systems join seamlessly to create a solution designed to enhance the joystick piloting experience. The integration provides increased control of any size of boat with twin or more Mercury Verado outboards.

Achieved using a bow thruster integration kit from Mercury, the new integration allows Mercury to capitalise on the features and advantages of the VETUS BOW PRO thruster range, including the NMEA 2000-certified CAN bus interface, allowing control of the proportional thruster from Mercury’s joystick. 

VETUS Maxwell US President Chris DeBoy said: ‘We have introduced new technology within our expanding BOW PRO thruster family to make life easier on board for skippers and crew. It is vital we continue to work closely with the best manufacturers on system integration, and we are therefore delighted to collaborate with Mercury Marine to combine our thrusters with their joystick piloting solution.’
