Electronic Vessel Control (EVC)
A FULLY INTEGRATED SYSTEM
At Volvo Penta everything is designed, developed and manufactured together – from engines to transmissions, drives and propellers. Everything can be easily controlled and monitored with the intuitive Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) System. With the system, you can plot a route on the Glass Cockpit System, activate the Autopilot on your Joystick, and be guided smoothly to your destination. Easy and intuitive.
Fully Integrated Assisted Docking SystemTake control with Volvo Penta Assisted Docking – the next generation of marine automation. It allows you to compensate for some external factors, i.e. wind and current, as well as maneuver in tight spaces, enabling safer and easy boat docking when facing the challenges of crowded marinas.
Backwards and sideways docking. Forward at full speed. Stability in rough conditions. Wherever you’re going, the Joystick gives you precision at your fingertips with its unique functions – Joystick Driving and Joystick Docking.
AUTOPILOTWhen Joystick Driving is activated, the Autopilot turns on simultaneously. The driver steers the boat by moving the Joystick. When the Joystick is released, the Autopilot is engaged and keeps a forward course. The set course can easily be changed on the Autopilot with a slight turn of the Joystick.
