Several world premieres of boats, accessories and instrumentation were presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival. One of the most interesting is the new remote control for motor control from Xenta, an Italian company specializing in the production of integrated guidance systems. In other words, Xenta is in charge of developing supports that through remote control make maneuvers, especially precision maneuvers such as mooring, easier.
Xenta in Cannes unveiled its latest innovation: a state-of-the-art remote control designed to maneuver the boat in total freedom and full safety by moving freely from bow to stern without limiting the sensitivity and emotions of the neophyte as well as the experienced sailor at the helm. This allows the person commanding the boat to move freely throughout the hull during all phases of the maneuver, controlling the bow and stern propellers, even at a low RPM, and then also using the windlass. The remote control has a very simple and intuitive interface, has a backlit screen for use at night, and is resistant to even the most extreme temperatures.
Specializing in hi-tech technology for boating, Xenta is an Italian company with a product range from simple electronic throttle systems for engine control only, to joystick maneuvering systems, assisted steering systems with functions such as Dynamic Positioning and control for USV. Xenta has long established important partnerships with all the major motor boating groups such as Ferretti, Azimut, Monte Carlo Yachts, Pershing, Princess, Sunseeker, Cerri and many others, with whom it tests and develops its instruments.
