 MarineMax   -   Guy P.   St Petersburg   "I wanted to send you this note to thank you for the great sales and service support. The Yacht Controller System has proven to be a reliable product. Yacht Controller is a great aide for docking and a piece of equipment our customers enjoy having on board their boats. Our experience in the marketplace has shown that customers will buy larger boats if they feel they can control them. Yacht Controller clearly provides this solution since it gives customers complete control when docking from anywhere on board. As a MarineMax team member who has now sold and installed many Yacht Controllers, I highly recommend the system to our customers as I am confident it will enhance their boating pleasure and experience." 
  Marlow    58'    58'    Sarasota, FL    I love my Yacht Controller on my Marlow! Its the best piece of equipment on my boat! Thank you for a wonderful product.  
  Azimut    62   Gary R   Ft. Lauderdale, FL   I was having issues with my Xenta system and could not get any service support from them. I was fortunate to have come across your company who came in and removed the system and equipped my boat with Yacht Controller! What a great product! I love my Yacht Controller and am happy I made the switch! Thank you for your support.  
 Albin Express   36   Jim R.    Washington, DC   "My unit is installed on a 36-foot Albin Express Trawler that I keep at Herrington Harbor South. Although I often have guests who can help with docking, sometimes I don't (my lady friend is clueless about handling lines). With the Yacht Controller, I can completely dock and undock my boat unaided." 
 Alexander Marine   88   Jeff H.   Seattle, WA.   "The Yacht Controller provides incredible flexibility to the operation of our 90 foot Ocean Alexander. My yacht's particular installation provides complete remote control of the bow and stern thruster as well as each main engine in idle forward or reverse. As an owner operator especially, the Yacht Controller allows me to single handedly dock and undock my yacht easily without assistance onboard or dockside. With the range of the Yacht Controller I will hold or maneuver my yacht alongside a dock while working on the dock securing and letting go the lines myself. And, while setting and retrieving the anchor, the Yacht Controller allows me to maneuver my yacht from the bow while observing firsthand the lead of the anchor chain. Whether a yacht is manned by an owner or a profession crew, the Yacht Controller is a very worthwhile asset to its operation." 
 Altima   61   Steve K.   Hollywood, FL   "I have had my Yacht Controller for over 10 years and it has worked amazing! Recently, I took a lightning strike which damaged my electronics and even that could not take my Yacht Controller completely down! I look forward to my new v2 Dual Band upgrade!! Thank you for your wonderful support throughout the years!" 
 American Tug    41   Mike C.   Ontario, Canada   "I have owned the Yacht Controller for years and love it! I took the "Great Loop" trip on my American Tug and was able to handle the boat the entire trip on my own! Anchoring was also much easier with the Yacht Controller in hand. If I ever buy another boat I will surely add the Yacht Controller!" 
 AQUILA   38   Jerry B   Oyster Harbors, Osterville MA   "I was introduced to the Yacht Controller while considering purchasing a large power catamaran with a 15 foot beam at the Palm Beach Boat Show in March 2013. My final decision to purchase the boat was based on having a Yacht Controller installed in order to get in and out of tight dockage spaces. When I come into a tight dock area and stand on the bow with the Yacht Controller all heads on land turn and people come up to me asking about the remote control. I sometimes even stand on the aft section of the upper deck and back into tight dockage spaces. I enthusiastically recommend the Yacht Controller to anyone with a large power boat, especially for single handed operation. It is an essential operating tool." 
 Azimut Fly   66'   Lance C.   Annapolis, MD   The wireless controller was an add-on to a 2017 Azimut 66 Fly that I took delivery on in November. This is an awesome device and they should be installed on every boat! 
 Azimut   42   Bill L.   Pennsylvania   "I absolutely love it! It gives me a tremendous sense of safety. I do a lot of boating on my own and having the Yacht Controller gives me the mate I need to dock my boat with total control. I now have the freedom to go boating on windy days knowing I have the Yacht Controller to safely dock my boat."  
 Azimut   51   Rick K.   New Jersey   "I love my new Yacht Controller! I'm in total control. The greatest invention since sliced bread. I have never damaged my boat docking again since I purchased the Yacht Controller. I no longer fear docking my boat." 
 Azimut   52   Rich K.   New Jersey   "I had a Yacht Controller installed about 5 years ago and love it! I would do a commercial on it if asked I think so highly of it. In fact, I refer to it as my "Wife Saver"" 
 Azimut   55   Julio D.   Puerto Rico   "The Yacht Controller has been my best investment. The ease of use and the security features are exceptional. Every boat must have one. This devices make any person an expert Captain." 
 Azimut   55   Paul H.   Cayman Islands   "I find the Yacht Controller is a reliable and invaluable tool for navigating and docking my Azimut 55." 
 Azimut   62   Charlie C.   California   "I think the yacht controller is really, really useful. I use it all the time, including when at the bow for setting the anchor."  
 Azimut   62   Ron C.   Annapolis   "Yacht Controller is a first class operation. I have referred your company to at least 100 people. I have saved thousands, not even counting possible boat damage, just by adding up the amount of food I have been able to enjoy, instead of getting the heartburn and upset stomach associated with docking." 
 Azimut   72   Bruce W   Glen Cove NY   I have owned the Xenta controller and the joystick and both are useless for docking. The delay is too ling and units hard to operate. Yacht Controller is great to dock with and easy to use! Thank you for a great product! 
 Azimut   86   Capt. Adam G.   -   "I love the Yacht Controller! I have used all over the world and it has aloud me to handle a vessel this size comfortably from anywhere on board the vessel! The freedom and ability to provide me full control is matched by no other control system in the market! I have run several other boats with Yacht Controller and always recommend them to boat owners!" 
 Burger   90'    Murray P.   Chicago, IL   "We could not more pleased with our Yacht Controller! It is an absolutely wonderful product that has allowed my wife and I to effectively handled the boat. We have now used it on numerous occasions and can tell you it's great to have! Thank you for all your efforts in working to interface with our custom bowthruster. You are a great company. We are glad to speak with any customers on behalf of the system and the company!  
 California Yacht    61   Bill P   St. Downieville, CA   "This last weekend, we (along with 3 other large yachts) sterned into the Napa Valley Yacht Club docks. Our hosts at Napa Valley were really impressed at the functionality of your Yacht Controller. Bear on in mind that in Napa- “cost is irrelevant”. They asked about the system and I gave your product rave reviews (which they could see for themselves). " 
 Californian   61   -   San Francisco, CA   We are on our Benicia Yacht Club's "Summer Cruise" currently docked at "Grindstone Joe's" private island marina in the Sacramento Delta (about 70 miles by water southeast of San Francisco). We called our fellow cruisers who were already docked and were told to come on in and side tie to starboard- lots of dock space. When we arrived 20 minutes later, two other boats had pulled in, leaving us about 65 feet (for our 61.5 foot boat). With about 10 of our companions watching (some anxiously), with your Yacht Controller, while standing on the starboard side deck so I could see both bow and stern (and hear the many "helpful suggestions"),slid Seasons into the available space. I would not have tried this maneuver operating from either our bridge or aft cockpit stations alone.  
 Carver Marquis   65   Wally M.   Great Lakes/Myrtle Beach, S.C.   "I have a 2006 65ft Carver Marquis. I boat in the great lakes in the summer and down to Myrtle Beach in the winter. The yacht controller is absolutely incredible! I've had power boats all my life and never has boating been more pleasurable than in the past three years. I go out on it many times on my own and dock without any help from anyone. All my boating friends are amazed how easily I manage this yacht on my own. The product has paid for itself many times over just because there has been zero damage caused in docking in all kinds of weather. The most important benefit is that I no longer have any stress at all when I come in to dock. I recommend the Yacht Controller to all my friends." 
 Carver Pilothouse   53   James R.   Sandusky, OH   "I am the 89th Commodore of Sandusky Yacht Club, a 11S-year old Club with 1,000 members and a fleet of 6S0 boats located on Sandusky Bay in Lake Erie. Each year at our annual Regatta we have many water events for both power and sail boats. This year in our docking contest, twin screw classification trlck Glynos garnered the top position using his "Yacht Controller" on his 53 ft I Carver Pilothouse Motoryacht. Nick amazed the judges and spectators alike by how effortlessly he was able to dock with the use of the remote control while standing on the bow of hislboat. Nick has docked his boat at many of our sailaways in spots where he would never have been able without the use of the remote controlled "Yacht Controller." It has become a crowd-pleasing event to witness Nick's docking abilities using your product; it has piqued the interest of many." 
 Carver Voyager   57   Dana S.   -   I have owned a Yacht Controller for over 5 years and I love the system! Thank you for your help...The Yacht Controller team did a great job! You have built a fine company that really cares about your customers!  
 Carver    57   Blaine M.   Annapolis, MD   "The controller has been a godsend. Managed to jam the 57' (Carver) into a 60 foot space on the Annapolis city dock this summer- with a huge audience of course!" 
 Carver   46   Gary J.   Ontario   "I am very happy with my Yacht Controller. Its the best item I've added to my 2001 466 Carver as you cannot see the dock from the helm it's a judgement as to how close you are, with the yacht controller standing out on the deck you know where you are at all times. It makes docking a pleasure and in 3 years of use its been trouble free." 
 Carver   46   Raymond R.   Chantilly, VA   " I love my Yacht Controller! Before I had Yacht Controller, I had to rely on a self installed RV video camera backup system that required additionally installed rear mounted flood lights to see at night, and the assistance of a first mate. With a high, forward mounted bridge on my Aft Cabin, and limited visibility, shouting out instructions to helpers unfamiliar with the nuances of docking turned into unpleasant moments. Yacht Controller changed all that and is the single most important upgrade to my 2004 Carver MY466 AC. I found myself without a first mate in 2009, and after buying this product and having it installed, I discovered that I never want or require help to dock or undock a 42,000 lb boat! When I have guests aboard, either boaters or non-boaters, they are always amazed at the fact that I can tie and untie, and get my boat in and out of the dock with no assistance at all. And anchoring is much easier n ow because I can operate the boat from the bow and maintain an eye on my chain angle and anchor position. I highly recommend this investment. It's a great product and probably the best $ I ever spent on that boat. " 
 Carver   47   Ted S.   Michigan   "My name is Ted. I have a 47 foot motor yacht moored in one of Lake Michigans largest marinas. I have a YACHT CONTROLLER installed on my boat and have come to depend on it for maneuvering in and out of my slip at my home marina and depend on it even more at less familiar marinas around the lake. The back of my boat is not visible from my fly bridge which makes backing into a slip a hit or miss (no pun intended) operation. The YACHT CONTROLLER has solved this problem. I highly recommend this unit to any Captain who can use the added capability that this unit provides." 
 Carver   50   Steve J.   California   My reluctant-sailor wife went with me to the fuel dock on Saturday to handle lines, and watched in amazement as I nudged that towering boat gently to the dock from the side rail. She said, wide-eyed, "You did that?!" ...... she said, "That's not a birthday present for you; it's a birthday present for ME!" 
 Carver   53   Capt. Ron   New York   "I love the fact that I have complete control of the boat while in any location on the boat while docking. I can accurately move the boat within inches in any direction I choose."  
 Carver   53   Captain Ron   New York   I love the fact that I have complete control of the boat while in any Location on the boat while docking. I can accurately move the boat Within inches in any direction I choose. 
 Carver   53   Peter K.   Florida   "I have used your Yacht Controller in my boat 53 foot Carver and it has worked better that the normal boat controls I have been able to use it anywhere on the boat with perfect ease and peace of mind without the attendant screams that goes along with the normal docking procedures that was done in the old days without the Yacht Controller. Thanks a lot for a product that works well you make me look like a pro when I use it." 
 Carver   53   Thomas H.   Missouri   "I tried the system; it is INCREDIBLY SLICK! I can now launch and dock this 53 foot yacht precisely and smoothly completely BY MYSELF. Thanks a million." 
 Carver   53   Tony C.   Miami, FL   "The Yacht Controller is a blessing. I was able to dock my 53' Carver aftward from the transom, an almost impossible task until now." 
 Carver   56   Mark & Kae E   Tennessee   "When we purchased the Yacht Controller......we could not imagine that the end result was going to be so perfect. The equipment works just as it is suppose to. Without the Yacht Controller, I would not be able to handle our Carver 56 Voyager on my own, as it has quite a few blind spots not to mention it's shear size. Fueling, going through locks, anchoring, and obviously docking is now done with ease when short handed or even by myself. Your product will make wing stations a thing of the past! From the installation to tech support, Yacht Controller is one piece of equipment that truly does what it was built to do. It has performed reliably since being installed. I would recommend Yacht Controller to everyone and have highly recommended that it should be offered as optional equipment on new Carver Yachts." 
 Carver   56   Mark B.   Tennessee   I installed the updated yacht controller this weekend and it performed flawlessly. I was able to walk over 100' from my boat and it never lost communications. I am very happy with your unit..... Your company truly stands behind your product. Thanks again. 
 Carver   57   Bob D.   Washington   "I have been a boat and yacht owner for over 25 years now. My recent pleasure boat is a carver 57 ft. When I first learned of the yacht controller, I knew I had to have it. I had it installed, and since then the thought of having to move the yacht myself is no longer a challenge. Here in the Seattle area, I go in and out of the Ballard locks often. Having the yacht controller has made it more of a pleasure going thru the locks rather than a chore. The unit is extremely reliable. Many boaters have seen how handy the yacht controller is. I am sure they have purchased one and I would recommend the yacht controller to anyone." 
 Carver   57   Joe O.   Maryland   "As I was telling you at the Miami boat show, I was the third boat in the United States to have the Yacht controller installed. I am so glad that I took the chance on your product. I have a 57 carver which can be a little tricky docking because of the very limited view, especially with a dinghy sitting on the upper deck. The yacht controller makes it a breeze. My wife has a bad back so that leaves me with no first mate assistance but with the remote I can be my own first mate. I also have a bad back and the controller is a must as I could not easily tie the lines without it. When I am docking my pilothouse I usually stand on the swim platform or the cockpit which causes an immediate audience when they see no one at either of the helm controls. I have been applauded many times. When I first got the controller I had only been boating for a little over a year and had the swim platform repaired once already but no reoccurrences since the controller was installed. I'll never own another boat without it."  
 Catamaran PDQ    41   Gabriel R.   Miami Beach, FL   "I'm very happy I can now handle the boat with no problem. I went out for a sunset cruise on Friday afternoon. The winds were blowing 20-25MPH so it was the perfect time to put it to the test handling the boat by myself. The experience was simply amazing, I was able to walk all the away around the boat and untie all 6 dock lines by myself and place them nicely on each piling for my return all the while keeping the boat in place with the controller around my neck. My neighbors at the dock were in aw. When I arrived at the dock it was simply a breeze to tie up by myself. I fell 100% better handling the boat now and in complete control, I just took the family out Sunday today for a little cruise and the wind was howling again and it was flawless and anchoring alone is simply easy now, no more running back and forth to the controls. The addition of the controller really eliminates all my worries I was having handling the boat alone. It is quite funny my neighbor has a 45 sea ray and had 4 people standing at each corner of his boat while he was going out, when I was leaving he walked over and said you need a hand and I said no thank you, I left the dock standing at the transom driving the boat making sure I cleared the pilings with the tender and he was cracking up. I hope that update helps, I highly recommend this to any PDQ users." 
 Catamaran PDQ    41   Jeff B.   Osterville, MA   I was introduced to your fantastic product at the Palm Beach Boat Show... The product is a life saver and it would be difficult to get by without it! 
 Catamaran   44   Capt. Sam T.   Edisto Island, S.C.   "I would like to take a few minutes to praise the owners of Yacht Controller for the prompt assistance they gave me when my sending unit stopped working. As a charter captain, I sometimes work without a mate and Yacht Controller takes that person's place. I run a 44' power catamaran with only cockpit controls where your visibility is extremely limited while docking. With Yacht Controller, I am able to walk around the deck and even drop a line over a cleat while holding the boat in place. This type of control is nice when anchoring as well since the anchor controls are on the front of the boat as far from the cockpit as you can get. My congratulations to the inventor of this device as it makes boating quite simple. Also for getting me back in business so quickly." 
 Cheoy Lee    80   Capt. Rocky   Ft. Lauderdale, FL   "I have used the Yacht Controller. I recently completed an Owner trip through the Exumas on the 80 foot Cheoy Lee M/Y Anthem which had recently installed it. It allowed me complete mobility during the docking/anchoring process and performed flawlessly." 
 Cigarette   42   Capt. Julian   Coral Gables, FL   "Just wanted to follow up with you. The owner just left with the boat after the demonstration and he felt like a kid on Christmas Day! Thanks for all the work from your staff to make this happen!" 
 Cruisers    44'    Vance W.   North Carolina   I got the system installed and it works great! 
 Cruisers   56   Drew A.   Cochranville, PA.    "The Yacht Controller has worked out well and is very handy to have. I have used it on several occasions where it would have been impossible to do from the helm" 
 Custom Build   100   Bill H.   Arizona   "The remote controller has worked great for my boat. It has more range than I expected."  
 Custom Yacht   68   David B.   Washington   "I Can't live without it! Boating without it has become unimaginable. It is literally the best piece of equipment on my entire boat."  
 Eastbay    49'    Bob B.   Hull, MA   Nothing beats the Yacht Controller! Being able to walk out by the handrails makes all the difference in safe docking. It's a sweet thing! 
 Express Trawler   36   Dr. Jim R.   Washington D.C.   "I had a Yacht Controller installed on my 36-foot fast trawler two years ago. It's a godsend. I don't know what I ever did without it. It enables me to dock and undock my boat without any distance. If you knew the nautical limitations of my girlfriend, you'd appreciate how valuable this is." 
 Fairline Squadron   65   Mimi L   Lighthouse Point Yacht Club FL    "I love the Yacht Controller! Until we learned about the Yacht Controller we were considering a boat in the 50' range. Having precise control in the palm of our hands my husband was able to effectively handle a larger yacht so we in turn purchased a larger model vessel 65' in size! My husband can single-handedly dock the vessel with ease! As live aboard customers we use the Yacht Controller extensively. We will never own another boat without one! Thank you for the wonderful product."
