My Grand Banks 42 also had a valve on the lower helm for windshield washing. Had to disconnect at valve and blow out line with compressed air to clean out every couple years as it was not used that often. Of course their is not one at the upper helm.

If your yacht has hydraulic steering the valve might be used to adjust how quickly the rudder(s) respond to steering.
