On a slightly windy day we headed out on the water with Capt. Sean Gill, Yamaha Pro Staff, and Ry Landry, Yamaha Product Education Manager, to see the Yamaha Helm Master EX in action. The customizable boat control system builds upon Yamaha’s original Helm Master while expanding its usage to single through quad outboard applications.
Boating autopilot functions, such as course and heading hold, can be adjusted with the joystick, which was also designed to easily make changes to SetPoint features without leaving the current mode.
It was a smooth ride.
