Volvo Penta IPS upgrade

Volvo Penta
Volvo Penta have launched an Assisted Docking system as a retrofit upgrade for yacht owners with Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS). Retrofitting Assisted Docking will be boat specific, ranging from a simple software update to full upgrade kits, which will include the Joystick and Dynamic Positioning System (DPS), antenna and Glass Cockpit interface. Each customer can consult with an authorised Volvo Penta dealer to evaluate whether Assisted Docking is the ideal fit. Assisted Docking is a hybrid between automated docking and manual docking. The beauty of this system is that it gives the captain enhanced control.   volvopenta.com
