Makes Sense to me

Finally and for the first time–a pod-type joystick with a bow-thrusters control alongside. According to the folks at Prestige Yachts, the joystick/thrusters setup shown here on the new Prestige 500 Flybridge is designed to facilitate dockside maneuvering in extra-strong winds and currents. My own experience with pods in high winds tells me this is a great idea. Lovely new boat, too.
