Navis Engineering is to supply its JP4000 Joystick Control System to Drettmann Yachts for a 24m Explorer Series vessel under construction at Acico Yachts BV in Enkhuizen in the Netherlands.
The yacht features unique electrical podded thrusters in both the stern azimuth and bow tunnels which dramatically reduce sound and vibration and the JP4000, adapted to individual customer requirements, adds greater control and flexibility when manoeuvring or with the integrated autopilot at sea.
Bremen-based Drettmann Yachts will be showcasing the Explorer Series at the 45th International Boat Show in Düsseldorf from January 18 to 26 at Drettmann Yachts GmbH, Hall 6 Stand 6A07.5.
In 2013 Navis signed a contract for another system for a mega yacht currently being built at an undisclosed shipyard in the Netherlands.
