Twin Disc’s Express Joystick System is designed to improve the maneuverability of a boat.

For most boat operators, docking and maneuvering in tight quarters is the most challenging part of being on the water.

Twin Disc said its Express Joystick System will help a driver conquer that challenge.

The system actuates an engine’s throttle through the Twin Disc EC3000 Power Commander system, Quickshift transmissions and thrusters, delivering power that’s proportional to the amount of pressure exerted on the joystick.

The driver pushes or twists the joystick in the direction he wants the boat to move.
