Another World First for Aquila 36

Aquila Catamarans joined forces with Mercury and J&J Design to create the first outboard driven multihull with Mercury Joystick Piloting (JPO). This joystick steering and docking systems allow the owner to steer the sizeable catamaran effortlesly into the tightest of mooring spaces. Joystick is used to control the newly developed software to steer the 2 Verado 300 outboards, and rules for optimal placement and angulation of engines were developed. The results are stunning : high precision maneuvering is convenient and intuitively easy, under any conditions.
