The Yamarin Q is an easy-to-use system that eradicates the need to acquire such separate pieces of equipment as a chart plotter or sonar. Moreover, it will make the helm better-looking and more ergonomic, as it is no longer necessary to have a collection of separate instruments each conveying piecemeal engine data. Drawing inspiration from the automotive industry and smart tablet manufacturers, the Yamarin Q builds upon successful experiences gained on the Buster Q systems already available for years.
“The Q system brings a new level of comfort to boating. With the system, boaters have everything they need readily available in one place, be it the charts, engine data or local weather as well as boating manuals and various instructional videos. There is no need to acquire separate equipment or keep a stack of publications on board. The concept has proven successful on Buster boats, and we now want to offer the same experience also to boaters choosing a new Yamarin,” says Anders Kurtén, Director of Product Development for Yamarin and Buster.
The Yamarin Q comes as standard in the new 88 DC premium, 88 DC, 63 DC, 63 BR and 60 DC models that feature a 16” and 10” version of the touchscreen, respectively. For boaters, this translates into a variety of benefits, such as electronic charts that are considerably larger than normal, an advantage particularly tangible on the sixteen-inch touchscreen version.
The Yamarin Q’s standard features include an Internet connection, C-Map electronic charts, Yamaha Engine Interface, local weather data and a Wi-Fi hotspot which can be used to share the Yamarin Q’s internet connection for other devices.
Music from appropriate data sources can be played wirelessly through the system’s applications. An easy-to-use FM and DAB radio is available. With the advanced wireless functions, the Yamarin Q is also economical in terms of power consumption, allowing you to enjoy music all day while out on the water.
The Yamarin Q smart display can be supplemented with various optional accessories such as a sonar, Fishfinder, remote control, AIS, high-quality sound system and radar. Being compatible with the NMEA 2000 communications standard, the Yamarin Q communicates flawlessly with marine electronics from other manufacturers.
The Yamarin Q Fishfinder provides imagery of the bottom structure and the fish down to a depth of 270 metres. Its exceptional image quality is enabled by CHIRP technology that transmits across a wide spectrum of sonar frequencies with each pulse, compared with conventional imaging sonars transmitting just a single frequency per pulse.
The mechanical remote controller, available as an optional accessory, can be docked to the steering wheel or surface-mounted next to a Yamaha outboard’s remote control device, for example. The remote controller has six buttons, and their functions change according to the function selected on the Yamarin Q smart display. The remote control can be used for toggling between different display functions and for controlling the navigator and the sound system as well as the trolling speed of Yamaha outboards.

The remote controller brings entirely new features to the smart display, including a quick-to-use “glance forward” function. When pushing and holding down a button, the chart screen view zooms out to display an overview, and when the button is released, the chart screen view again zooms in on the boat.

The controller can be used for toggling between different display functions and for controlling the navigator and the sound system as well as the trolling speed of Yamaha outboards. Using the remote controller is simple and intuitive, as soft keys styled according to the controller’s buttons can be found at the bottom of the touchscreen sidebar, and these keys respond visibly to push-button commands from the controller.
The remote controller connects to the Yamarin Q smart display automatically via a Bluetooth connection. It is powered with batteries that last many years even in active use.
