 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   Captain 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   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! 
 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   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 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    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 thru the Erie Canal system, into Lake Ontario to Montreal, and returned to 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! 
 Grand Banks   49   Tim C.   Newport Beach, CA.   "My wife and I own a 49 FT Grand Banks Eastbay and our Yacht Controller gives us complete maneuverability, even in the tightest space. My wife can back our boat into our slip with no problems. We pick up our mooring at Catalina Island regardless of wind and currents. It is a fantastic instrument." "This is our second docking instrument. Our first one was another brand and it was a disaster. It continually shorted out our electrical system, leaving us with no controls." 
 Grand Banks   72'   Thomas A.    Palm Beach Gardens, FL    "I've used the Yacht Controller on trips to the Bahamas and up and down the East coast. I could not imagine the trips without my Yacht Controller! I recently docked it with less than 6" on each side with no issues! Thank you for providing a great system!" 
 Hampton   55   Larry H.   California   "Back in 2004 I had a Yacht Controller unit installed on my new 558 Hampton. I just sold that boat and I told the new owner that I would never own another boat without wireless Yacht Controller. It is the best option that I added to the boat and after 4 years of using it I never had any problems. I will contact you after I have found a new boat. Thanks for a great product." 
 Hampton   55   Larry J.   Maryland   "I love it! I can't imagine running a boat without it." 
 Harbor Master   46   Richard S.   New York   "I love it! I think it is a fantastic product. It is the best piece of equipment on my boat." 
 Hargrave   78   Mike Jones   Marco Island   I leave the helm, walk down to the side & put my boat exactly where I want it. Easier to dock than my old 68'. Absolutely love it!  
 Hatteras    77'   Greg D.   St. Pete, FL   I had a an electronic control refit with a Yacht Controller installed along with the addition of a stern thruster package with the Yacht Thruster Duplex models and the entire package works beautifully! I could not be happier. I have enjoyed the equipment since early 2014. Feel free to use me as a reference for the products and the company! Thank you for your service. 
 Hatteras   100   Capt Cliff   Yucatan Mexico    "Tony told me abut the unit and sold me the unit. Your installation crew was the best. I enjoyed getting to know everyone of them. They did a great job and knew what they were doing!" 
 Hatteras   100   Capt Franco   Yucatan Peninsular    "I love my Yacht Controller! Originally there was an issue with the installation but your staff attended to the issue immediately and ensured I had my system completed before my departure from Miami. I rely on the system heavily. As an experienced captain who has ran several vessels over 100' I can tell you the Yacht controller is a great tool for safe docking! When my v3 Platinum Dual Band installation was completed, we tested ranges over 300' off the vessel! Not that the system were to be used in this way but it was sure comforting to know I had strong range from anywhere on board the boat. Thank you Tony for all your efforts. Yacht controller is a great product! If I can ever be of reference, please do not hesitate to call." 
 Hatteras   54   Robert R.   Florida   "The Yacht Controller is like having another person on board. When we dock, my wife is on the bow and I can now leave the fly bridge to handle lines in the cockpit. When we moor or anchor, I can go on the bow and handle those duties. I appreciate the Yacht Controller and wish you all the success in the future." 
 Hatteras   60   Jean D.   Barbados   "This equipment is super!" 
 Hatteras   65   Capt Rick   Ft. Lauderdale, FL   "I use the remote to go to and from the fuel dock and it has turned out to be a necessary item when backing the boat into the slip because even a little wind really gets a hold of her. Big difference between this Hatteras M/Y and the 65' Hatteras S/F I've run for the past 16 years. Thanks again for the great service."  
 Hatteras   65   John H.   Alaska   "It gives the Capt. The ability to look down the shear on either side of the vessel and have absolute control in real time. No need for headsets and guessing what a deckhand is or was saying over the sound of the exhaust as you are backing into a slip. This one item lowers the stress of ownership if you are an owner operator. The insurance industry should encourage the installation of your product by reducing premiums for owners with the product installed."  
 Hatteras   72   Carl R.   Naples   "I purchased a new 72 Hatteras Motor Yacht in 2008. The boat had very poor visibility on both sides as well as the stern during docking operations. Rather than install two wing stations and an aft station I chose to go with the Yacht Controller and one control station on the helm. This product makes docking a dream. I can walk to the location providing me the greatest visibility and maneuver the vessel as easily as a boat half its size. An added benefit that I did not plan on was the ability to adjust lines from the dock without assistance by controlling the engines and thrusters from shore." 
 Hatteras   72   Kevin T.   Ft Lauderdale, FL    "Guy Pigeon from Marine Max just finished an installation aboard our new 72' Hatteras. I love the unit and have shown a lot of customers on our big Summer cruise!"  
 Hinckley   40   Craig B   New Castle, NH   "I am writing to tell you how thrilled I am with my Yacht Controllers. As you know your company designed a yacht controller system for my two boats a 58' 2013 NISI and a 40' 2004 Hinckley Talaria. You guys were great to work with and your installation was flawless. With little practice time less that 30 minutes driving the boat using the yacht controller was easy. I will say the handling on the yacht controller exceeds the handling at the helm. More than that the yacht controller allows both boats to be single handed at docking and undocking safely. I cannot tell you how happy I am and how much I spread the word to my boating friends as to the must have nature of your great product. For those that want to witness the actual driving I shot two videos today as you can see we have significant wind conditions north of 20 kn. The person driving using the yacht controller has docked the boat just a couple of times using the the product, it is just that good! Thanks for allowing me to tell my story. " 
 Holland   70   David B.    Bellevue, WA    I keep my boat at my house on Lake Washington with my dock I need to back in 70' with less than 2 feet on either side and I can't see from controls in either the Pilothouse or the Flybridge. Almost impossible to back in especially with a breeze. I had the then brand new 60 Series Detroit Diesels with controls you had never adapted to at this early stage in your development. It has continued to work flawlessly for over 12 years! I have never had a scratch on my boat and can put it to within inches of where I need to be in any situation including difficult crosswinds. I am over 70 and my wife is 69 and we have always run our boat by ourselves. With the Yacht Controller I run the boat entirely by myself which I do often and can even go through the locks into Puget Sound alone and all this in a 70' boat! Most user friendly piece of equipment I have AND the one piece I could NOT do without!! In the early days no one had one and we were the talk of the boating community when they watched us perform, now there are many around and haven't really met any owners who don't feel entirely like we do!  
 Horizon Power Catamaran   52   Valerie A   Virginia Beach, VA   "My husband and I can handle the wide beam power cat with ease thanks to Yacht Controller! It allows us to handle the boat with no arguing or miscommunication. It's a definite marriage savior! Lol!" 
 Horizon    60   Adam B.   BVI, Caribbean   "I tell so many people about the product (Yacht Controller). I love mine! I am the talk in Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour! They love it!" 
 Intrepid Sport Package   40   Jim S.    Mill Creek Marine   "We launched the boat this afternoon. It worked flawlessly to the point my tech docked the boat leaning on the transom with the remote!" 
 Intrepid   47'    Brad M.   Florida   I was extremely impressed with (with the Sport JCS Yacht Controller System). The system sells itself! I felt honored to have met Jerry. Quite a guy !! I will be putting a system on my boat. 
 Jeanneau    28'   Charles W.    Seattle, WA    "I recently purchased a JCS (Yacht Controller) from The Yacht Group for my Jeanneau 855 (2016 Model Merry Fisher). I am very pleased with the system's performance and its effectiveness enabling me to maneuver my boat with a greater ease during docking.... [Your Installer] who single-handed installed the JCS on my boat worked very hard during the whole period she stayed in Seattle. She planned her work with great care; one step at a time, and with a lot of patience she fine tuned the electronics so to achieve the desired system’s performance. They were done very methodically. Also, her in-situ planning ability was good while recognizing there were many more obstacles yet to overcome. At the end of week, she had delivered a working system to the customer. [Your installer] professionalism towards her work was excellent." 
 Jefferson    57'    Phil & Mary L.    Clearwater, FL   "Hey Tony, ...The addition of the stern thrusters on the Jefferson 57 made a big difference in us handling her. Since we are older (76 & 67 now) and handled the vessel ourselves, the additional stern thruster gave us the added maneuverability to put the 65' LOA vessel anywhere. Also, we would highly recommend the Yacht Controller for a large vessel, particularly if it's a couple with no additional crew. Mary L, USCG Master Phil L." 
 Kady Krogen   48   Bill E.   Seattle, WA   "Last week I had my first opportunity to use the Yacht Controller on our boat. Let me just let you know how pleased I am with the unit. It has turned docking and anchoring maneuvering into more fun than stress. I feel in much better control of the boat. You folks have also been very easy and pleasant to work with. Thanks!"
