Caterpillar Marine Power Systems has introduced new joystick and pod systems that integrate a boat’s engines, transmissions, thrusters, and propellers into a single source of control. The systems, which feature Twin Disc QuickShift transmission technology, promise greater ease of maneuverability and docking, as well as more responsive vessel steering at low speeds. “The unique aspect of the solutions we are developing for pleasure-craft applications is the ability to leverage Twin Disc technology with the renowned CAT power and performance,” said Nigel Parkinson, managing director of Caterpillar Marine Power Systems. “We are introducing the pod and joystick solutions with both yacht owners’ and builders’ needs in mind.”
