Joystick Piloting for Outboards (JPO) with Bow Thruster
JPO with Bow Thruster* is an integrated approach to maneuvering large vessels powered by multiple Verado outboards and equipped with JPO and a bow thruster. With the simple addition of the JPO with Bow Thruster upgrade kit, control of the thruster is seamlessly integrated with the Mercury joystick for complete and easy control.
Full 360 degree control. Right at your fingertips.
Move sideways, diagonally or spin the boat on its own axis. Dock in close quarters without being concerned about wind or current. Easily load the boat on a trailer. Throttle, shift and steering - right at your fingertips.
You're fully covered. Right down to the controls and gauges.
The outstanding warranty coverage on Mercury engines also extends to the controls and rigging components on your boat. If your builder or dealer uses genuine Mercury gauges and controls when installing the new engine on your boat, the warranty coverage for those rigging components now matches the total warranty of your engine. This means you could have up to an additional two years of control and rigging component coverage – based on the engine purchased.
