"Dual Band", "Dual Band Plus" and "Fusion Plus Dual Band" 

The original gold standard for wireless control of yachts. Over 25,000 in service on boats up to 175 feet.

Dual-Band Plus

The "Dual Band" Yacht Controller and joystick remote “Fusion” , firmly established the Gold standard of wireless remote control, and the platform for the multiyear development and testing for our technology leap forward with Maximo, the Ultimate Yacht Controller. 

These systems simultaneously transmit on two frequencies thereby eliminating the possibility of signal interruption due to unauthorized use of radio frequency bands by others or government agencies. The security of our system with its 5 microprocessors and 10 relays ensures a command reliability greater than the actual wired controls to the ships on-board microprocessor, yet this plug and play system is easy to install and extremely user friendly. 

Add to that, a waterproof transmitter which floats and a waterproof receiver and you have durability virtually unmatched by most electronic equipment in the field. 

These features have been further advanced with more powerful and secure computer power and wi-fi connection for even greater security, serviceability and flexibility.

With almost 26,000 Yacht Controllers in service, our technology is well proven, secure, reliable, and precise.

NOW AVAILABLE: Optional Proportional thruster control for those boats equipped with compatible proportional thrusters.

Yacht Controller Dual Band Plus: 

With Incremental Throttle and Thruster Control for Proportional Thrusters*, Automatic Mode, & Dual Anchor Control

Dual Band Plus has all the great features and safety protocols of our proven dual band remote AND the following advanced features

The ultimate in yacht control, Dual band Plus allows the user to set up to 5 parameters of power control with ramp-up time for the perfect control of the yacht in virtually every condition.
🅢 Speed Control*

Once the parameters are set, Dual band Plus is easy to use. Simply push the speed control button in quick succession for the parameter you want to use. So push 3 quick times for parameter 3. The remote will acknowledge your command by then flashing 3 times. If you want to change parameters, simply push the speed control the equivalent number of the parameter or simply turn it off to return to idle speed. Yacht Controller Dual Band Plus unequivocally the perfect choice for wireless remote control on your yacht.

You can set how much additional throttle you would like up to an additional 30% over idle for those especially windy or tidal conditions and the amount of time you would like the power increase to take hold. So for instance on our demonstrator vessel position 2 is 20% more power which takes 10 seconds to arrive at the 20% allowing a smooth increase in power from idle to the 20% increased power. Up to 5 of such parameters can be set including both the amount of final power and the time it takes to arrive there. The perfect solution for total boat control.

* Optional based on availability

🅐 Automatic control with dual band +

Dual band + new automatic mode feature is a simple way to engage engine and thruster in combination with your remote. Simply press the A button to activate, the LED will light up confirming your choice, and then your thruster will run in conjunction with your engine to assist in moving your boat in the desired direction. This provides the ability for you to slide or “ crab” your boat sideways while also moving forward or astern to the dock, raft-up or mooring. To return to manual mode where only the engine will be engaged, simply press the A button again and the corresponding LED will turn off.

Yacht Controller V.IPS employs automatic incremental throttle control via the Volvo system and can by placed into Hi docking mode with one push of the speed button.

Yacht Controller, state of the art wireless docking control for stress free maneuvering enjoyed by more than fifteen thousand of our customers on more than 200 brands of boats.

Dual Anchor Mode

With Dual band Plus the user has the ability to control a sixth function such as a second anchor, or a watersports platform, cable control etc. *

Note: use of this mode requires a second receiver and interface for the sixth function. Dual band Plus only available with selected CANBUS based control systems
"Dual Band" Yacht Controller technology, launched in 2016, represented the conquest of a new frontier in Yacht Control which has greatly benefited the marine industry and our customers by making it safer and easier for them to operate their boats and to consider the purchase of larger ones. Operators by attaining the ability to both maneuver their boat into a slip AND TIE IT UP WHILE CONTROLLING IT WIRELESSLY provides a method far greater than any other engine and drive combinations while docking. 

Other systems only focus on getting the boat into a slip without offering any method to assist in the tie up, other than to stay at the helm or run for the lines. These other systems at best do only half the job at great expense, while Yacht Controller’s “Dual Band" and “Fusion” offer an extremely cost effective and practical solution to the complete docking and tying up process.

Yacht Controller system technical highlights include the following: waterproof (both transmitter and receiver) with watertight connections and corresponding gaskets. “Dual Band” is equipped with proprietary silicone membrane switches developed by Porsche Design.  “Fusion” is a complete Joystick system providing computer driven proportionate control of engines and thrusters in a combination to satisfy the position of the joystick as selected by the operator.

Unique control heads, functions and thrusters are enabled by inserting card chip processors in slots so systems can be moved from yacht to yacht should the owner change vessels. Individual microprocessors for each function employ back-up relays to ensure redundancy for safety and security working via CANBUS system. Acoustical alarm and take command functions replicate original control functions also for safety and security. Automatic shut off after 4 minutes of non use, constant visual signal for transmission, low battery alarm and acoustical alarm in event of loss of signal all provide additional safety.

As a veteran of the marine industry for many years, holder of a 100 ton captain's license and designer and seller of many yachts I can uncategorically state that Yacht Controller is one of the most welcomed and enjoyed products in the Marine Industry. With more than 25,000 systems in the field, and total customer satisfaction, "Dual Band", "Dual Band Plus" and "Fusion" are breaking all barriers in Yacht Control for now and beyond.
