Garmin and Bavaria introduce Vision 46 Dock Control
31 May 2012
Garmin and Bavaria, one of the world´s leading yacht manufacturers have teamed up to create a unique Docking system onboard their new Bavaria Vision 46.
The system consists of two thrusters, a joystick, and two actuators. Mooring your boat couldn’t be easier, simply use the joystick to manouver in any direction and with a designated page on the Garmin plotter you are able to view the thruster status, rpm and gear status.
Daniel Kohl, Sail boat product manager at Bavaria says “Dock Control is the next step in Sailing assistant systems because we developed the functionalities by analysing the 120 customers on our test boat. The integration of Garmin into the system allows us to display safety relevant information’s like battery status of the thrusters, RPM, locked wheel on the plotter which is absolutely unique”.
Nigel Craine European Marine OEM Sales Manager for Garmin said “We have been enjoying an exclusive partnership with Bavaria since January 2011, this development gives another reason for customers to choose a premium quality boat with world leading electronics. We look forward to our continued partnership with Bavaria”
This Docking system is now available on board the new Bavaria 46 and available on additional models soon. For more information see here http://www.bavaria-yachtbau.com/en/sailing-yachts/vision-46.html
