 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 through 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." 
 Chaparral 2017   310 Signature   Georges B.    New Jersey   "I was about 5 miles offshore when I received an alert from my starboard mercruiser engine. All of a sudden my DTS control was no longer allowing me to shift the engine in gear. I was able to take full control of both engines through the Yacht Controller joystick and make it safely back 5 miles to my marina, even navigating through the Shark River inlet. The Yacht Controller saved me and my family that day. Had it not been for your system, we would not have made it back. I love the product." 
 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!" 
 Crosswater Power Catamaran   54   Robert F.   Forest, VA   "We have a power catamaran with a helm that makes it impossible to see the corners of the boat. We just installed the Yacht Controller system and it makes a world of difference. The ability to stand on the side deck and control the engines as well as the bow thrusters makes docking a much easier and safer process. I can now see exactly where the boat is in relation to the dock and talk to the admiral as she handles the lines without using headsets. Now I can dock the boat from the lower deck and help with the line handling. [GREAT PRODUCT]!" 
 Cruisers Express 2008   56   Albert H.   Marina del Ray, CA   "I purchased a Cruiser Yacht 560 in November 2020 which was an upgrade from my Bayliner 30 that I had owned for about 20 years. I was naturally nervous about learning how to captain and especially park my new vessel. The best decision I made in conjunction with purchasing my new yacht was to equip her with the Yacht Controller system. Luckily the captain I had hired to train me on the new yacht was also the dealer for Yacht Controller in Marina Del Rey California, and he was very familiar with the installation and training. I love the fact that I can stand anywhere on the yacht to pull her out or into the slip. What is also more convenient is the fact that I can do everything myself, including standing on the dock and continuing to position the yacht as I need to to tie the lines. I would recommend this system to anyone that wants the super convenience of a remote control system for their yacht." 
 Cruisers    44   Vance W.   North Carolina   I got the system installed and it works great! 
 Cruisers   53   Philip G.    New York   "I just wanted to take a moment to say how great it has been working with you. Your exceedingly high professionalism in your area of customer support has exceeded my expectations and has made me continue to not only be a loyal customer but rave about Yacht Controller as Whole. Great job and keep up the fine work!" 
 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."  
 Dettling    51   Leigh W.   Stuart, FL   "I have had the system (Yacht Controller) installed on three different boats, the first in 2005 and the most recent last year (2016). I have also recommended the system to friends. I understand the unit installed in 2005 is still functioning normally. Yacht Controller has been a highly reliable addition to each of my boats. It is highly responsive and the vessel is so much easier to maneuver in any wind or current conditions with the handheld unit. Improves safety significantly. My wife and I handle our current 51’ Dettling on our own, as we did our 60’ Vicem when we installed the first one. A really terrific concept! My best Leigh" 
 Devlin   52   Ed S.    Seattle,WA    "I am soon to turn 80 and run a twin motor 52-foot LOA power boat. I almost always single-hand the boat and even when my wife is aboard there is not much she can do. The places I boat have many marinas with tight fairways crosswind and sometimes significant current. I have owned and used the wireless Yacht controller for a few years now and what a difference it makes! Now I think nothing of backing into a slip even in less than optimal conditions. I can move anywhere on the boat to see where the tight points are and walk to the stern and swim platform to step off the boat to take my stern and spring lines onto the dock tie them up while I have full control of engines and thrusters. I then can pull the bow in with the thruster grab the bowline and walla all secure no help needed!! I think the Yacht controller is not just a good product it is great."  
 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." 
 Fairline   58   Joseph L.   Aventura, FL   "This feature [Yacht Controller] allows me to be all over the boat when docking instead of being stuck at the helm, I can help when I have non experienced guests on board." 
 Fairline   62   Capt. Fred   Florida   The yacht controller is the best piece of equipment I have ever had to help me handle a boat and I have 30 years of experience. It makes handling of the boat easy and precise. I can do it myself without any additional crew. 
 Fantasy Houseboat    85   Tim M.    Grand Rivers, KY   "I am a big fan of Yacht Controller having it installed on my 85' Houseboat and 90' Palmer Johnson! I rely on the system heavily as a docking tool and would not own another boat without one. Anytime I can be of support with prospective customers please do not hesitate to call!" 
 Fantasy Houseboat   112   Mark R.    Evansville, IN   "The Yacht Controller has been great for my houseboat! I can take the houseboat through the river and dock all by myself. It is a great product and I recommend to anyone especially on boats with visibility issues!" 
 Ferretti 550   55   Juan R.   Key Biscyane FL   "I just wanted to drop a note to let you know that the control is working great, much better sensitivity than the controls and the joystick! Thank you for providing a great product!" 
 Ferretti   55   James W.   Hillsborough, CA   "I have really enjoyed the Yacht Controller on my Ferretti. It works great." 
 Ferretti   70   Peter P.   Newport Beach, CA   I keep my boat at Bayside Marina. I am retired boater and am able to dock my boat alone! When I have guests on board they simply watch as I dock by myself. Thank you Yacht Controller for the support! It is truly an amazing product! 
 Ferretti   72   Spiro P.   Chicago, IL   "I had Yacht Controller's service manager fly up and install the system on my new 2021 72 Ferretti equipped with Xenta controls. The installation was completely plug and play. We went on several test runs both at the dock and away from the slip and the system worked great! I am very happy with my new Yacht Controller in supporting my docking needs. Thank you for all your support!" 
 Ferretti   83   Anonymous   -   "The Yacht Controller is a game changer! It changes the dynamics of single handed boating! It makes for easy docking even on this 83' Ferretti!" 
 Fleming    55   Tom and Lynn H.   Maryland   The Yacht Controller has been one of the best piece of equipment I equipped on my Fleming. I have used it for many years and continue to enjoy easy docking. You have our full support if ever needed with any prospective customers! 
 Fleming   65   Mike J   Anacortes, WA.   "The installation was an easy process. The instructions were easy to follow and initial use also was easy. After a quick demonstration, my customer had no problem using the Controller. I spent a week on the boat with him and he used the unit daily. This Yacht Controller was installed on a 65 Fleming. We had no trouble docking at the marina, backing down the channel and turning into our slip and tying up without any assistance. The Yacht Controller made it possible!" 
 Fleming   -   Duncan C Fleming Yachts Production Manager OEM   -   "Fleming Yachts have been offering the Yacht Controller as an option on all new Fleming models for many years and we have no hesitation in recommending this product. It allows you full control of the vessel from any position on-board making it easier to maneuver your yacht, especially when shorthanded. The after-sales support from Yacht Controller has also been excellent." 
 Galeon    51   Doug G.    Ft. Myers, FL   "The Yacht Controller system has been excellent! It works perfectly as advertised! The Yacht Controller pod wireless joystick not only runs the IPS drives but also the bow and stern thrusters. The Yacht Controller system also operates my anchor windlass which allows me to be at the bow of the boat with complete control and ability to back down with the engines all from the remote. It is a great product! Thank you very much!" 
 Galeon 550    55   Glenn C.   Punta Gorda, FL    "I love my Yacht Controller and would not buy another yacht without one! It makes the average boater look and feel like a pro! Thank you for this amazing product." 
 Galeon 550 Fly   55   Cristian M.   Naples, FL   "Thank you so much for the Yacht Controller installation. The installation went flawless and your team did a great job with the delivery. Everything went well for my client's trip up the east coast to NY city where we used the yacht controller extensively. Thanks again and I will be recommending this product to all of our customers!" 
 Galeon Flybridge   64   Capt. Walter F.   West Palm Beach, FL   "Tony, [Yacht Controller] is working great! The owner [and I] love it! Thanks again." 
 Galeon Yachts    -   Bob Burke    -   Galeon Yachts Brand Manager & MarineMax Sales Manager The Yacht Controller has been a great asset to our Galeon Yacht clients who want the functionality of a joystick or remote control while maintaining a traditional shaft-driven propulsion system. The ability to be free of the helm while maintaining complete control of the yacht has been a benefit that our clients appreciate. As technology and innovation drive the industry forward, our clients continue to embrace them. 
 Galeon   50   MarineMax / Mitch S.   New York, NY   "Thank You, Chris! I really appreciate all your help…My customer loves his Yacht Controller. He can’t live without it!" 
 Grand Banks Aleutian   53   Richard D.   Westport, CT    "Simply put, The Yacht Controller is the best value for money I have ever spent on a boat! I have owned over a dozen boats during my 45+ years of boating, and the only other thing that comes close is GPS navigation. The Yacht Controller has enabled me to run my Grand Banks Aleutian single-handedly and with great confidence in virtually every situation possible. Docking it in high wind, or strong current situations is a piece of cake. My wife, who used to think this boat was too big for just 2 of us, thanks to the Yacht Controller, now thinks it is just right. Her own confidence docking it has grown dramatically. I would not own another large boat without one!" 
 Grand Banks Eastbay   54   John H.    Stuart, FL    "Greetings, I had a Yacht Controller installed on my Grand Banks Eastbay 54 in early 2016. I sold that boat and left the Yacht Controller on board (I think it really helped sell the boat!!). ...I’m the best salesman you have out there… I’ve had tons of folks drooling at how easy it is to dock my boat all by myself!!" 
 Grand Banks Europa   52   Jim L.   New London, CT   "I am completely satisfied with the Yacht Controller. From the first conversation with Tony and the subsequent conversations with Shana, all was coordinated very well. I had issues on my boat which required several reschedulings which Shana took care of. The onsite installation with Jimmy went extremely well and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. The unit itself has worked flawlessly and we are extremely happy we purchased it. No negative vibes here - you have a team of rock stars!" 
 Grand Banks    54   John H.    Marina Del Ray, CA   "We really liked our Yacht Controller on our last boat and I find people staring at me in wonder when I’m up on the bow maneuvering in a tight space… and there’s usually a lot of “discussion” after docking… It’s a great tool and a must have! I look forward to equipping my next Grand Banks!"  
 Grand Banks    Eastbay SX 54'   Capt. John   Marina Del Rey, CA   "PS… I had a wired (tethered) remote on one of my boats a number of years ago and I agree night and day vs yacht controller… having a yacht controller on my last boat when I sold it I strongly believe helped sell the boat…. It’s a really cool tool to have in the tool bag!" 
 Grand Banks   45   Bob C.   Fort Lauderdale. FL   "I made the trip through the Erie Canal system, into Lake Ontario to Montreal, and returned to the U.S. via Chambly canals into Lake Champlain. My Yacht Controller was most helpful entering the locks. Made it much easier to control bow or stern while securing one line without the worry of the vessel sliding away from the other mooring cable. Being able to be outside the entire time was a real plus for me."  
 Grand Banks   47   Bill H.    Virginia Beach, VA    Tony Valiente, you sold me a YachtController for my 2009 GB47CL several years ago. I met a guy a couple of weeks ago, named...., who is buying a new Fleming 55 to be delivered this fall. He is quite interested in the system and I gave him your name and website info. I continue to be very happy with the system!  
 Grand Banks   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!
