Introducing Helm Master, Yamaha's fully integrated boat control system. Helm Master brings the advantages of digital technology to every facet of operation, from easy maneuvering in the marina to cruising with command on the water. Rigging and controls are tuned precisely for your application, so that Helm Master makes driving your large offshore boat feel like second nature. Yamaha Master tech on site.
The CL7 is Yamaha's first touchscreen display and the largest, ever digital display. Now, you can monitor up to four outboards and a range of critical boat systems all on one gauge. This will streamline your dash, while adding so much functionality.
The new CL7 touchscreen display includes the option of built-in, detailed fresh and saltwater maps and is also how you access Set Point* to program your preferences for the new Fish Point, Drift Point and Stay Point modes.
Meet Yamaha’s Next Helm Master’s maneuverability and some of its new Set Point functions are achieved with independent outboard articulation and thrust vectoring. So each outboard may be running at a different RPM or in a different gear, all at once, to achieve a desired maneuver.
Through the CL7, you can customize settings such as screen contents, steering friction, display appearance and auto-off power-down timing. You can also monitor critical boat stats such as battery charge level, fuel flow and economy and rudder angle. And that's just for starters.
Captains of large offshore boats have already discovered the incredible ease and precision of Helm Master©. This fully integrated boat control system includes an enhanced binnacle control, a streamlined digital display, multi-outboard key switches, an RFID key fob and an innovative joystick. It's the joystick that moves large craft in surprisingly agile ways. This makes navigating crowded marinas and docking in tight slips much less intimidating.
Now, our engineers have found a way to make boating even more effortless Helm Master with Set Point™. Developed in collaboration with professional captains, Set Point's modes - Fish Point™, Drift Point™ and Stay Point™-provide even greater control for situations such as fishing, waiting for a bridge and controlled drifting. Maneuvers that are often very difficult for even experienced captains can now be achieved automatically via Helm Master with Set Point.
The Helm Master joystick combines the shift, throttle and steering functions all in one responsive device. Simply engage the joystick to disengage the shift/throttle and steering wheel.
Helm Master delivers real-time response based on your input, automatically adjusting thrust and direction when you apply pressure to the joystick. This eliminates the need to "bump" associated with traditional shift and throttle systems.
To achieve the full range of motion, Helm Master independently positions each outboard to coordinate thrust direction and intensity. Whether this means enacting forward and reverse propulsion simultaneously.
Every Helm Master component is engineered to maximize the performance of your large, offshore boat. From controls that take the guesswork out of maneuvering and docking to gauges that give you critical information, Helm Master helps you command effortlessly.
