Peugeot and leading yacht company Beneteau have teamed up to create the Sea Drive Concept, which aims to demonstrate how Peugeot’s i-Cockpit could be applied as a new way of designing a boat’s steering station. The concept combines the ergonomics of the i-cockpit, featured in their SUV class, with their collaborator’s connected ship control technology. The result illustrates a unique yet highly stylish and functional way of creating a boat’s steering station.
Jean-philippe imparato, peugeot brand CEO, said: ‘the peugeot i-cockpit showcases the central values of the peugeot brand – innovation, design and premium quality, it has revolutionised the interior of our vehicles with easily accessible controls and increased comfort for drivers”
There’s a compact steering wheel, a large 17″ touchscreen Ship Control interface, a head-up display, and a minimal array of toggle switches, while the interior is beautifully refined with Nappa leather, copper topstitching, and satin chrome trim, allowing passengers to enjoy an incredible atmosphere aboard.
Another interesting feature is the Ship Control system, that controls and displays a wide variety of onboard functions, from lighting and air conditioning to navigation, electrical and audio systems, or information about the engine, battery and fuel levels. This system can be also connected to multiple tablets deployed around the vessel, so please be careful what you touch.
