The world renowned Italian company that has been building steering wheels and after-market parts for over 30 years, worked together with SV YACHTS during the design process to deliver a fully custom and intelligent steering module (ISM).
In search for a true sports car look and feel at the helm of “ALPHA”, it quickly became evident that ISOTTA was the only brand that would be able to deliver the product and quality we were looking for. Adapting their ISM to our needs, we kept the stereo system control on the right side (on/off, seek, volume, mute and media) and added custom controls on the left side. This includes horn, bow thruster on/off, bow thruster port/stbd, anchor windlass up/down.
Integrating this smart ISM control panel with all its functions into our complex and extensive electronics-/ electrics system and digital switching was a challenge. Connecting to a spectrum of low and high-tech equipment from a simple horn or windlass to substituting a bow thruster joy stick, accessing the nmea2000 backbone or FUSION stereo required some creative problem solving.
