F - 1
Control systems permit operation of the engine’s
throttle and shift mechanisms. The 338 Vista
drive models are equipped with dual engine electronic
binnacle control with trim. See Figures F1, F2 and F3.
The left lever controls the port engine and the right
lever controls the starboard engine. Moving the lever
forward will shift the drive into forward. Moving it aft
will shift the drive into reverse. Moving the lever further
will increase engine speed.

The control information included in this section
is general only. For speciﬁc operation of the
controls on your boat, refer to the control
manufacturer’s literature and engine
manufacturer’s literature included in your
owner’s packet. Ensure you completely
understand the operation of the controls before
operating your boat. Also consult your dealer
should any questions arise regarding the
operation of the control unit.
Figure F1: Helm Station
Allow the engine to warm up before engaging
the shift control. Monitor all instruments while
engine is idling during warm-up.
If your boat is equipped with a non-OEM
remote control system, ask your dealer how to
properly operate it.
F - 2 CONTROL OPERATION
Reduce throttle as soon as motor starts. Do
not run a cold motor any faster than necessary
to keep motor from stalling. Do not exceed
2000 RPM in NEUTRAL.
The throttle shift control used is determined by the
type of engines that are installed the 338 Vista
either is equipped with a digital throttle/shift
(DTS) control by MerCruiser or an i6000 electronic
throttle/shift control by Teleﬂex Morse . See Figure F2
During the general operation of a twin engine boat,
it is advantageous for both engines to be operated at
the same engine speed (rpm). This reduces noise and
vibration, and can increase propulsion system efﬁ-
ciency. Setting the throttles so the engines are running
at the same rpm (synchronized) can be done by using
the synchronization function on the electronic binnacle
control. Follow the manufacturer’s operating instruc-
tions regarding synchronization of the engines. These
instructions are included in your owner’s packet.
Attempting to synchronize the engines solely by using
tachometer readings or manually controlling the
throttle lever placement will generally not be effective.
