Easy to Use

The Glass Cockpit seamlessly integrates industry-leading navigational features from Garmin with the power of the Volvo Penta Electronic Vessel Control System. Easily access and control engine, driveline and navigation data from the comfort of one, adaptable multi-function screen. You can even turn cabin lights or music on and off, at a touch.

Fully Customizable

Tailor every element of the Glass Cockpit to you. Access key information using customizable screen layouts and press a button on the Volvo Penta joystick to change layouts to suit different modes. The display is fully integrated with the control system, so you can simply and seamlessly control your boat to suit your needs.

It’s a Game Changer

Now boaters of all levels can enjoy safe, intuitive docking and driving. The Joystick integrates directly with your propulsion systems’ individually steerable drives and the EVC, making for simple, stress-free maneuvering.


Steer with one hand with perfect response and minimal effort. You can utilize the ergonomic Joystick for next-level control of your bow thruster, engine thrust and steering, or both in unison, depending on your preferred installation.


You can install up to six Joysticks around your vessel, even outdoors, with full flexibility in twin, triple and quad installations.

Choose How You Cruise

With Cruise Control, both engines automatically sync to the same RPM, so you can find your perfect cruising speed and stay in full control of your journey ahead. With only your fingertip, you can fine-tune your rpm – giving you the freedom to choose exactly how fast, how fuel efficient, and how comfortably you explore the ocean.

Safe and Maneuverable

Cruise Control makes boating in rough seas and windy conditions safer, thanks to the ease of fine-tuning your engine’s speed. This is also key in crowded marinas and narrow passages, as small adjustments to the boat’s speed can make all the difference when trying to maneuver safely in tight environments.

Fine-Tune Your Speed

Set a specific speed for your boat without having to manually adjust the throttle, and fine-tune it whenever you need to keep your perfect cruise. Cruise Control will deactivate as soon as you move the throttle. When Low-speed Mode is activated, Cruise Control also lets you fine-tune your pace at very low speeds.

Fine-Tune Fuel Consumption

Cruise enjoyably. With fingertip control of the engine rpm, you can fine-tune the boat’s speed to also optimize your on board comfort and your boat’s fuel effiency.

Take in the Open Ocean

A yacht autopilot system supports you, to help reduce captain fatigue so you can be your best at the helm. The Volvo Penta Autopilot with Shadow Drive is a complete and fully integrated auto-steering system, for accurate boat navigation you can trust.

Better Efficiency

Enjoy a seamless experience at sea, as your boat easily keeps to its desired heading. Autopilot works in sync with electronic steering and the Glass Cockpit System, both of which are required for installation.

Intuitive Assistance

When Joystick Driving is activated, Autopilot will turn on simultaneously. When the joystick is released, Autopilot is engaged and keeps a forward course. Your set course can easily be changed on the Autopilot with a slight turn of the joystick.

Your New Driving Partner

With Shadow Drive, the Autopilot is always active and keeps your desired heading. To change course, use the steering wheel to steer to the new heading and the Autopilot will take over as soon as your boat straightens.

Smarter, Safer

The optional Auto Guidance feature searches through all relevant charts to create a visual route for you to follow, avoiding shallow water, buoys and other charted obstacles. Linked with the Volvo Penta Autopilot, Auto Guidance will show you the way.

Total control on the water, at a touch.

The Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) automatically holds your boat position, despite of wind and current. Integrating seamlessly with the joystick, maintaining your heading and position is simpler than ever.

Easy to Use

Simply press a button on the Joystick Control and your boat’s position and heading is safely kept within a precisely limited area, even in rough conditions. Easily disengage the system by moving the control levers or pressing the button once again.

Simple and Precise

An inbuilt repositioning feature means that as the Dynamic Positioning System automatically keeps your boat in position, you’re free to easily make slight adjustments of a few feet. Keep steady and still, even when wind and currents make manual operation difficult.

Smart Features

Twin GPS receivers in the two antennas allow the system to determine your boat’s position and heading. Sophisticated software in the Electronic Vessel Control system transforms the received data into steering angles, gear shifts and throttle positions to hold your boat’s position.

Relaxed Planning

When docking, you and your crew can avoid stress and relax as you prepare your fenders and lines. The DPS also gives you more freedom to safely plan a change in the route or to hold your position, whether that be inshore, offshore or in the harbor.

Experience the Magic of Aquamatic

Available for boats between 20-45 feet, it’s the optimal mix of reliability and performance. Powerful and responsive, yet fuel efficient, the Aquamatic Sterndrive gasoline or diesel engines are perfect for both leisure cruising and thrilling watersports.

Difficult Becomes Easy

The Assisted Docking system enhances your control as captain. From moving in straight lines without manual compensation, to rotating around a fixed point – docking your boat is now easier than ever before.


The larger effective propeller blade area of the Duoprop makes our Aquamatic Sterndrive’s driveline more efficient, helping you save up to 30% on fuel consumption. Direct fuel injection enables you to get more energy from each and every drop of fuel.


Volvo Penta has engineered the Aquamatic Sterndrive to work seamlessly as one system, from the controls to the engine, all the way to the drive and propellers. This contributes to lower emissions and far better maneuverability.


Enjoy robust low-end torque, exhilarating power and exceptional mid-range response. Delivering impressive performance with rapid acceleration, it’s optimal for all the on-the-water-fun you can imagine.
