How to reverse Greenline 39 into a berth

This is how you reverse Greenline 39 into your berth without fail…

Peter Hrones talks us through the best way to reverse a Greenline 39 into a marina berth.

“The Greenline 39 is the easiest boat I’ve parked in my life,” Peter says.

With the simple use of aft and side thrusters it couldn’t be simpler.

Welcome to the Eyachts How To Series… Here we show you how to best use your boat. Whether you own an Axopar, Greenline or Sealine or are thinking about a purchase this is the best play to find out everything you are itching to know…



This is done on a single shaft drive, diesel with bow and stern thruster (Eyachts advises all customers to get both).

No need to use steering, just the thrusters and throttle.

Be aware of the wind direction and speed at all times.

How to…

Start heading aft first towards the berth

Centre the steering to zero

One click in reverse (1.8kts)

Continuously click both thrusters in opposite direction in short doses (this will turn the boat)

Click into neutral once momentum gained

Line up with the berth then click back into reverse

Use thrusters to keep in line

Once in, click one into forward to stop from hitting the berth

It is almost too easy…

Previously owning a Greenline 40 Hybrid for 8 years the Flemings were looking to downsize and found the perfect fit, the Axopar 28 Cabin.

Jon and Anne are already in love with their Axopar, it fulfils all their needs with the enclosed helm and how quiet and peaceful it is with the doors closed and retractable roof open. Jon talked about how well it rode at 25knots and the ease of steering with the 300hp Mercury Outboard.
