Make the most of every minute on the water with the incredible control of
Helm Master EX. Helm Master EX is built on the success of our
groundbreaking, original Helm Master boat control system. It expands upon
the functionality, flexibility and compatibility of our original Helm Master
system, for an exciting next generation of control.
The expanded functionality of Helm Master EX features:
But expanded functionality isn’t the only news.
Now, Helm Master EX is available for a range of applications, from
quad-engine offshore rigs to boats with single engines—an industry
first. Not only is it available to more boaters, but it’s also
available to more boats. Re-rig and repower your existing boat, or add it to
a new boat package from an expanded roster of hundreds of participating boat
builders. Finally, you can have your boat, your way with the expanded
compatibility of Helm Master EX.
Available on new digital controlled outboards F150 and up.
Single-engine boaters hungry for more control, joystick maneuverability and
automated fishing functions will find it all, exclusively with Helm Master EX. This
is an exciting, industry-first compatibility. Helm Master EX is also compatible with
twin-, triple- and quad-engine applications.
New, bolt-on digital electric steering brings precision and responsiveness to Helm
Master EX digitally controlled outboards from 150 to 350 horsepower (select models).
Its streamlined design—with no pumps, valves, hoses, etc.—takes up much less space
than traditional hydraulic units, for a clean spacious bilge.
Sit back and enjoy the ride with our NEW Autopilot panel. It features Heading Hold
and Course Hold for increased navigation precision, and can shift your boat into a
preselected mode once you reach your destination. It even makes fishing more fun
with automated spiral and zig zag patterns.
Meet the industry’s first Joystick compatible with single-engine boats. (And twin-
trip- and quad- configurations.) It features several automated SetPoint modes, like
new DriftPoint Track which auto-drifts your boat around jagged shorelines and
underwater features. Get ready for fun fishing and maneuvering.
Our new, smaller five-inch CL5 touchscreen display does almost everything our
original seven-inch display does—and takes up less dash space. Monitor the RPM and
gear status of up to four engines simultaneously, plus access critical boat stats
like tank levels for fuel, water and waste.

Select FishPoint® Bow or Stern and it’s like your boat
is tethered at its bow or stern. No anchor required!
Select DriftPoint® or DriftPoint Track and your boat
will enter a controlled drift, either simply maintaining its heading
(DriftPoint) or maintaining its heading while drifting along a set of determined
waypoints on a route (DriftPoint Track).
StayPoint® “marks” your position and heading and
maintains the spot within 10 feet (ideal conditions) or 75 feet (high
Select a route with Track Point, actuate it in Autopilot
and then select what your boat does at the end of the route with Waypoint
Arrival. At the Way Point, your boat can go into neutral or automatically enter
a SetPoint® mode.

Activate Heading Hold in Autopilot to make sure your boat maintains a set
Don’t let wind or current push you off of your intended
route. Course Hold makes sure you don’t take any detours to your destination.
Stalling your bait and then moving it suddenly gets the
attention of the fish. Pattern Steer automates a movement (spiral or zig-zag) to
Throttle up or down with the touch of a button, and
engage Pattern Shift for sub-idle trolling speeds while fishing.
Select a SetPoint mode such as FishPoint with the buttons on the joystick
Engage Heading or Course Hold on your Autopilot panel.
Once you reach your desired speed, activate Speed Control by pressing the
down button on the lower left side of your binnacle. This will hold your
current speed and allow you to bump it up or down with that same button.
It’s just like cruise control in a car.

hoses, etc.—for a clean, spacious bilge. So it takes up significantly less space
than traditional hydraulic steering units. It also draws much less power than a
traditional hydraulic steering unit, preserving battery life.
Our multi-function display interfaces engine information to
a number of Multi-function Displays, allowing touchscreen or
wireless remote operation, depending on model. Enables chart plotting, sonar, radar,
Autopilot, video, music control, digital switching, XM® weather and more. Software

*Compatibility between MFD Interfaces and MFDs varies by the MFD manufacturer. Consult with your authorized Yamaha Outboard dealer to ensure you’re purchasing the MFD Interface that’s compatible with your MFD of choice.
The Helm Master EX Keyless FOB works with Keyless Start/Stop
Ignition Panels for one-touch starting near the helm. It’s also used to engage the

configurations. They feature slim, backlit, button-push designs that preserve dash
space. For multi-engine rigs, a small All Start Panel can also be added. All panels
work with the Helm Master EX buoyant Wireless Key FOB for keyless ignition and the
engagement of our optional Y-COP® Anti-Theft System.
