The virtual anchor at the touch of a button
Dynamic Positioning is the perfect way of maintaining your boat’s position without dropping anchor, be it when you are preparing to moor or waiting to refuel or for a bridge to raise, etc.
Once activated the system automatically holds your boat’s position – even in windy conditions or strong currents. Dynamic Positioning uses GPS data and a Compass integrated with a gyroscopic platform to hold both the craft’s position and bow direction. A sophisticated algorithm, developed by XENTA’s engineers, turns these data into commands which are then transmitted to the propulsion and control systems.
The system also allows the boat’s position or bow direction to be changed in complete safety. To activate Dynamic Positioning, simply press a combination of buttons on the Joystick.
