Yamaha delivers Tech Talk session
Yamaha has participated in the RYA Training Conference 2024, an annual conference for RYA instructors and other training centre principles, which took place over the weekend of 27-28 January 2024 in Oxfordshire.
The RYA Training Conference is a key event in the calendar for RYA instructors, hosting a variety of inspirational speakers and exhibitions alongside important updates from RYA and the wider industry.
Ed Stevens, commercial and boat partner sales manager at Yamaha Marine UK, was on hand to deliver a Tech Talk session on a number of key topics, including the importance of fuel and fuel filters.
The Tech Talks at the RYA Conference facilitate the integration of new features and technologies into the practices of RYA instructors.
“These talks are a great way for RYA instructors to learn about the latest tools and features of the products they’re using, which in turn empowers them to deliver more engaging and impactful learning experiences to their students,” says Stevens.
As part of the session, Stevens also discussed Yamaha’s Helm Master EX rigging system, with the latest modifications – new for 2024 – which include Yamaha’s new 704 Remote Control Box with neutral locking feature, now incorporated into its brand new 350hp outboard engine.
“Yamaha’s Helm Master EX joystick is more than just a slow speed manoeuvring device; it also provides the ability to control and adjust other Helm Master EX features such as speed control and pattern shift, along with autopilot features of Heading Hold and Course Hold,” says Stevens.
The Tech Talk also covered Yamaha’s latest integration of Sleipner and Vetus bow thrusters, augmenting its Helm Master EX boat control system even further, offering boat users with Yamaha outboards seamless boat handling, even in the most confined areas, such as marinas.
