All New Helm Master EX!
Industry First Digital Boat Control System!
Yamaha has once again taken marine technology to the next level, with the industry-first and game changing Yamaha Helm Master® EX boat control system.
Helm Master® EX is a fully integrated boat control system that makes navigating and getting to your destination easier, and once you arrive, gives a whole new level of control to precisely manoeuvre your craft to exactly where and how you want it.
Never before has a single outboard engine been paired with a joystick control, delivering exceptional versatility and innovation. When it comes to twin, triple and quad engine applications, the new Helm Master® EX excels even further, with seamlessly integrated multi engine control.
No longer do you have to install multiple third-party devices such as steering and control systems, autopilot navigation and additional heavy batteries – nor the hassles that come with complex integration systems. With Yamaha’s Helm Master® EX, you get all of the benefits of these systems and more, in a simple, clean and fully integrated, plug-and-play system. And because every component has been designed, engineered and manufactured by Yamaha, it works seamlessly together to deliver the ultimate in reliability, durability and performance.
Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned expert, Helm Master® EX guarantees to make your fishing and boating experience easier, more enjoyable and productive.
By delivering effortless control over your boat, you get to spend more time on the spots where the fish are biting and less time setting up, anchoring or trying to fine tune your boat position.
Helm Master® EX – turning every fisherman into an expert.

Another innovative feature of the Helm Master® EX system is the integration of Yamaha’s all-new Autopilot system – making getting to your off-shore destination easier, more direct and efficient.
With the simple push of a button or a few taps on your compatible Multifunction Display, you can quickly plot out your journey, sit back and let the Helm Master® EX Autopilot and Digital Electric Steering do their thing.
|FishPoint® works to maintain the boat’s position. Simply identify your chosen fishing location and hit the FishPoint® button. Helm Master® EX then takes over using minimal engine RPM and the electric steering to hold your position.
The vessel can move in 1.5, 3 or 6 metre increments (present in the gauge) with a bump of the joystick forward, reverse or to either side. FishPoint® is perfect for stationary fishing directly below the boat.
|DriftPoint® allows you to keep your bow pointed in a set direction while allowing you to naturally drift via the prevailing current and/or wind.
One twist of the joystick moves your boat’s bow heading angle by 1 degree, while a twist and hold moves it by 5 degrees, with additional twists up to 50 degrees. DriftPoint® is great for drift-fishing a wreck, reef or for watching a sunset from the stern.
|DriftPoint® Track allows you to maintain your bow heading, while drifting along a set track (route) of waypoints that you have plotted using your compatible Multifunction Display. The boat will drift and use forward and reverse thrust to follow the predetermined route.
This is handy when trying to follow a same depth contour or for keeping a certain distance from shore to underwater objects like reefs and wrecks.
|StayPoint® works to maintain your boat’s heading and position. It is ideal for quickly locking your boat in position while waiting to dock or refuel.
The vessel can move in 1.5, 3 or 6 metre increments (present in gauge) with a bump of the joystick forward, reverse or to either side. One twist of the joystick will move your boat’s bow heading angel by 1 degree, while a twist and hold will move it by 5 degrees, with additional twists up to 50 degrees.
