Optimus 360, There’s
Nothing It Can’t Do
Tide Yacht sales can convert your new boat or an older boat to have the best steering capabilities on the water. Looking to re-power? No problem, let our trained and certified staff work with you on a Yamaha Re-power and adding an EPS system along with Optimus 360 to your boat. The performance and handling with Optimus 360 gives your boat a whole new dimension of control. By developing the joystick function to be intuitive, Optimus 360 allows you to move your boat not only forward and back, but also sideways, by pushing the joystick to the left, or to the right, and even, rotate on a dime, all with a simple twist of the joystick.
low speed maneuvering
Optimus 360 is designed for low speed maneuvering, and really excels in the marina, when pulling in and out of your slip, or docking. Optimus 360 uses intelligent programming to minimize the amount of shifting required to complete a maneuver.
With progressive throttling, the joystick becomes a natural extension of your hand. A light push on the joystick provides minimal thrust while more thrust can be applied by pushing harder on the joystick. The boost mode increases the RPM to give you more thrust when needed.
Seamless steering control
Each component has been designed to complement the other, resulting in a seamless experience of steering control in virtually every situation on the water. The high level of engineering also extends to the reliability of the system, with quality materials, careful manufacturing and redundant systems, all to stand up to the rigors of life on the water.
