Mercury Marine and luxury boat builder Sea Ray, along with parent company Brunswick Corporation, have launched JoystickBoatControl.com, a consumer Web site that provides information on these revolutionary technologies and updates viewers on this summer’s nationwide demonstration tour.
JoystickBoatControl.com provides information regarding Mercury’s Axius sterndrive propulsion system and Cummins MerCruiser Diesel’s (CMD) Zeus pod propulsion system, as well as boats that are equipped with Zeus or Axius.
JoystickBoatControl.com also details the 2009 Axius to Zeus Joystick Boat Control Tour, which is touring the country to show people how easy and enjoyable boating becomes when the intimidation of docking and tight maneuvering is removed.
Mercury’s award-winning Axius propulsion system combines drive-by-wire steering, throttle and shifting with a twin sterndrive package. The result is a system that allows boaters unprecedented vessel control by virtue of an intuitive joystick.
