Want to dock your megayacht yourself? Better yet, want to look like a seasoned pro while doing so? Then add the Beier IVCS2000 to your electronics package, and you are sure to be the envy of all at the marina. The IVCS2000 is an integrated vessel-control system that lets you manage engines, rudders, and thrusters automatically with the push of a button or with a joystick control. The system is Windows-based, utilizes a marine-grade, shock-mounted computer, and displays information on a high-def, touch-screen LCD. Its manufacturer claims owners looking to get a little more hands-on time will be able to operate their yacht with as little as 15 minutes of training on the device. Contact the company to discuss pricing and installation for your yacht.
