manoeuvring of diesel powered, conventional driveline boats. With easy fingertip movements you control direction and speed — instantaneously.

No lagging. No lugging. No lurching.

No clunking. All thanks to proven QuickShift®

transmission and EC300 control technology.

Express Positioning System (EPS) EPS enables Captains to hold their vessels in a desired position and heading at the press of a button. EPS then automatically controls the propellers and proportional thrusters to maintain this location in a broad range of conditions.
