“Helm Master EX has the ability to enhance great times on the water by making it easier for boaters and anglers alike,” said Ben Speciale, president of the Yamaha Marine U.S. Business Unit. “The expansion of Helm Master EX from single- to quint-outboard boat configurations makes the system a great fit for small center consoles to large offshore boats.”
