You. Turning on a dime.

Side-to-side, diagonal and spinning on a single axis. All with a simple push or twist of the joystick. Smooth, incremental low-speed control. Both throttle and steering. Superior to bow thrusters, which can drain your battery and leave you stranded - Zeus Joystick Piloting for Pods is integrated with the pod drives, without relying on battery power. Controlling wind, waves and current. Instead of fighting them. Confidence and control, even for novices. No stress on captain or crew. Dual-helm capability for dual, triple or quad pod engines.

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.
