 Neptunus   55'    James H.    Chicago, IL   The Yacht Controller installation was completed yesterday and works great! Vianca was very professional, keep everything clean, and gave me a complete review of the installation along with training and testing of the system. 
 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!  
 Tiara Coupe    39    Mike P.    Clayton, NY    I had a Yacht Controller equipped for my IPS boat and like it a lot!... It gives me the ability to control my pods from anywhere on board the boat for complete control and single handed docking. Thank you! 
 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." 
 Marquis    59'    Mark M.    Clearwater, FL   "This is a wonderful product (Yacht Controller). Very intuitive. This boat has challenges with visibility to some quarters from the helm. Was able to move and see what's happening while docking. Love it!" 
 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" 
 Sea Ray   58   Jeffrey S.   Connecticut   "Yacht Controller has made it possible to easily dock my Sea Ray 58 Sedan Bridge single-handed! Even when we are not shorthanded it allows me to leave the helm station to handle lines and to be on deck while still in full control of the boat. My wife hates to handle the anchor chain and windlass and the Yacht Controller allows me to be on the foredeck and still "at the helm" to move the boat at will. There is no more yelling aboard my boat thanks to Yacht Controller!" 
 Vicem   65   Leigh W.   Connecticut   "I installed the Yacht Controller on our Vicem motoryacht "Indra" three years ago. "Indra" is 65 LOA. Having the Yacht Controller installed makes docking and line handing of a boat this size very manageable and safe. We are delighted with the technology." 
 Lazzara   84   Frank M.   Connecticut   "I purchased my first Yacht Controller 3 years ago for my 75ft Viking Sport Cruiser. The controller was a big help in docking the boat. I have a full time captain, but I enjoy docking the boat myself. When I purchased my new 84 ft. Lazzara, I insisted that a Yacht Controller be installed. As boats become longer and wider, the ability to move around for better visibility is very helpful, most important is my confidence in the reliability of your product." 
 Pacific Mariner   65   Al K.    Connecticut   I purchased a dual-channel full-function Yacht Controller, which was installed on my Pacific Mariner 65..... in late May. I have been very pleased with the unit's functionality so far - it facilitates short-handed control during docking operations exactly as expected. My wife & I would not be comfortable or feel safe operating a boat of this size ourselves without it. 
 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!" 
 Marlow   78   Capt. Pete   Coral Gables, FL   "I have been a professional yacht captain for 25 years and I recently had major issues with a docking system which caused engine and thruster failure on my boat requiring us to replace the thruster motors. My attempts to reach the company that installed it were unsuccessful as their numbers were disconnected. Yacht Controller was great in responding to my needs. They removed the system and replaced with their latest Dual Band Yacht Controller system. I love it! It has worked great for me in docking situations on my 78’ Marlow. It makes docking a dream! With this boat’s line of sight issues from the helm, Yacht Controller’s use in a docking situation has proven indispensable! From a safety stand point, the elimination of the blind spots has proven for a safer docking scenario. Also when towing a tender you have the flexibility to be in the cockpit or platform to facilitate easier/safer towing and also boarding and off boarding the tender. I would like to thank Yacht Controller for helping me with this issue. I strongly recommend Yacht Controller for any boat larger than 35’.” 
 Nordhavn    55   Henry T.   Dana Point   "We would not be without it and show it to everyone. I feel after over a year using it that I could have dispensed with our aft control station and saved money! If I am in a tight spot I have my wife check one side or end of the boat while I walk around and make gentle adjustments with the Yacht controller. Apart from docking I find it invaluable when lowering and setting the anchor. I like to deploy the anchor from the bow and it is easy to position the boat in a tight spot and then set the anchor from the bow using the YC. It means that this can be a one person operation and I can see how well it sets from the bow. I have also found your post sales back up excellent.. not always the case with some of our other suppliers but vital when cruising a long way from home! It should be on the Nordhavn options list!!"  
 Intrepid   47   Ken G.   Dania Beach, FL   "(The Yacht Controller) is phenomenal and just what is needed on this boat! Two important features. Using idle power just doesn’t work in most environments. (Yacht Controller's ability to) Step it up throttle to 10 percent power allows much better control in wind and currents. Have not gone to 20 or 30 but don’t seem to need it. Second is that using one engine in either direction tells your thrusters you are turning and engages them appropriately to assist in the turn. No need to hold down the thrusters. Great product and I would highly recommend!" 
 Maritimo    70'   Jackson W.    Destin, FL    (As a repeat customer) It is great to be back in (Yacht) Control again! Nick was on the boat first thing this morning and did a fantastic job. He was very professional and clearly knew exactly what he was doing. We discussed a couple of options (direction of windlass controls, location of receiver power switch, etc.), sorted it out and got it right the first time. He was a pleasure to work with and a great representative of your company. It was right at 14 months ago that the first installer came to the boat in Anna Maria and found the difficulty with the CAT 360 system. Your technical team certainly did a wonderful job on adapting this product as it was a very straightforward plug-and-play installation. At least Nick certainly made it look that easy. Call on me if I can be of any help. 
 Sea Ray Sundancer   58   John W.   Detroit, MI   "This is my second one. It has taken the fear out of docking, and saves on fiberglass repairs!"  
 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." 
 Navigator    55   Dan H.    Emerald Harbor Marine Seattle, WA    On his (customer) first sea trial and training mission he was able to back his Navigator 55 into his slip while standing in the aft cockpit. He was literally laughing and overjoyed by the performance of his Yacht Controller system. I think he is still smiling. Thanks for everything! 
 Monte Carlo Yacht    76   Jaap B.    Europe   "My Yachtcontroller works excellent! It is certainly a device I would not want to miss... During our cruise in Croatia and also during the transfer to Mallorca last year it was very useful entering different marinas almost every other day." 
 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!" 
 Sea Ray   52   Richard C.   FL   "The [Yacht] Controller is great! It allows me to do many things single handed and also be more help to my first mate (my wife). The biggest benefit is how it allows me to move to an area which provides better visualization of the stern when backing into a tight slip or similar as there are many blind spots on my bridge. It is also cool and everyone on the dock is always impressed with the technology. I would definitely recommend!  
 Krogan Express   52   Bob L., Director of Sales, Krogan Express Yachts   Florida   "Thanks for your support in getting the latest Yacht Controller installed on a Krogen Express. Mr. Franck is very pleased with the results." 
 Ocean Alexander   45   Steve W.   Florida   "To whom it may concern. I have a 45 foot boat and docking it by myself was impossible until I got the Yacht Controller. Now I can dock it just about anywhere. A terrific invention."  
 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." 
 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." 
 Vicem   58   Craig M.   Florida   "In 3 yrs our 58' Vicem, Nightwatch has seen over 100 marinas from Nantucket to Miami. With Yacht Controller our docking is a breeze. With only a foot or two to spare we can slide into any slip, often to the amazement of onlookers. We've even received applause." 
 Lazzara   76   Gary M.   Florida   "I recently spoke with you and told you of my absolute satisfaction with my handheld yacht controller. I own and operate a 76' Lazzara by myself. I have zero crew. I have owned my yacht controller for over three years and did operate the boat prior to owning the controller. Prior to the controller it was a requirement to have a trained mate for every docking situation talking to me on head sets and guiding me on distances etc. I am now able to dock in every situation including backing into a slip stern to with no assistance. This has greatly improved the usability of this boat. I would not be without the controller. Reliability of the controller has been excellent. I travel from Florida to the Great Lakes each spring and fall and negotiate in excess of 100 locks per season on the Erie and Well and Canal. The controller is a great aid in entering, tying up and exiting these locks. As I travel and dock on a nightly basis there is always amazement from dock hands and other boat owners in seeing my ease in docking. Keep up the good work and best wishes for continued success." 
 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. 
 Sealine   47   Fred C.   Florida   "My wife and I are about to embark on a Great Loop Trip with our "Perfect Remedy". We use the Yacht controller virtually every time we dock and most times when we are anchoring. It has become an invaluable tool in promoting enjoyment in our boating experience."  
 Silverton   46   Ben B.   Florida   "Your product has saved me millions! Well ok, maybe not millions, but thousands in gelcoat repairs." 
 Meridian   41   Jack C.   Florida   "I want you to know that we are delighted with our new yacht controller. My wife and I cruise as a couple, and the controller has made our life significantly easier. Also, I cannot say enough about the service rendered by Marshall. He went out his way to assure our satisfaction." 
 Symbol   60   Philip T.   Florida   "Just a short note to say your Yacht Controller is the best! My wife and I navigate our 60' Symbol Motor yacht together. The Yacht Controller is just like having that extra set of hands that makes life, docking and close in maneuvering safe and fun."  
 Neptunus   60   Ronald S.   Florida   "I am addicted to the Yacht Controller, I had bought a new 60 foot yacht and had to dock it in the middle of the night on a curved stone wall in the Erie canal on my first day on ownership. The captain could not do it and did not want to use the Yacht Controller. I was the only person on board and I had the captain and another hand on shore at the bow and stern. I had never steered or docked this boat before and my last boat was 39 ft. I was able in the dead of night to take it and turn it 180 and dock it where the two shore hands only had to reach out and loop a line without bending over. I was able to move around on the fly bridge on the decks and had complete viability and more importantly complete control." 
 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. 
 Palm Beach GT   50   Frank F.   Florida and Connecticut    The Yacht Controller has integrated perfectly with my IPS propulsion Palm Beach. I find it fun to use and appreciate the sense of freedom Yacht Controller provides when docking! I also enjoy using it when anchoring. Thank you for your support!  
 Sunseeker   75   Kevin W.    Fort Lauderdale, FL   We have had a Yacht Controller for 12 years and I won't drive the boat without it. You need to have a stable of people (I would be happy to be one), that potential customers can call and speak with!  
 Princess   64'   Don H.   Fort Lauderdale, FL   "I love the response time the Yacht Controller gives me on my CAT engine controls. A must have for any Princess owner who likes to single hand their boat! 
 Marlow   65   Warren A.   Fort Lauderdale, FL   "Everything is good... If you need a recommendation, please have your customer(s) call me and I will be happy to give you guys high marks! 
 Luke Brown Yacht   -   Jason D.   Fort Lauderdale, FL   I've noticed your product; Yacht-controller, is having an interesting effect on one particular demographic in yachting. When I started helping people buy and sell boats 22 years ago, the 'cruising couple' would rarely venture out to sea on a boat bigger than 50'. For a large percentage of 'cruising couples' the man is stuck at the helm while the woman is on deck working the lines and fenders. Now, it appears Yacht controller is helping to reversing those roles, or at least freeing up the helmsman to participate on deck. With two on deck, or her at the helm, larger boats requiring larger and heavier lines and fenders are now manageable for the 'cruising couple'. 
 Luke Brown Yachts 2013   -   Pam B.   Fort Lauderdale, FL   "You (Tony) and Yacht Controller have been extremely generous to the marine industry. I look forward to the opportunity to referring your business and help spread the word about Yacht Controller and you other innovative products lines. Your support is much appreciated." 
 -   -   Jeff W. Phillips   Fort Lauderdale, FL   "Not only do the offer some great products they have outstanding customer service! I recently dropped off an older Yacht Controller remote that needed repairing for who is now the second owner. Everyone I encountered was top notch. They really went out of their way to keep me, the previous owner as well the new owners happy. " 
 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."  
 Sea Ray Sedan Bridge Models   -   Carl S.   Fort Meyers, FL   "I do lots of single-handing when I go out. Due to the unique way I secure my boat when leaving or returning from my slip I need to be in the cockpit when I accomplish these maneuvers. Enter the Yacht Controller. Now I can comfortably stand in the cockpit both when departing and returning to my slip. Even with a crew, it’s so much easier for just me to perform the dockage without assistance (and my passengers are quite impressed!). When approaching another marina or dock it allows me to maneuver the boat and handle the lines from the cockpit, while my wife handles the lines on the bow. It’s also much more precise, and I’m right there along the gunwale below, not up in the bridge with obstructed visibility. This Yacht Controller allowed me to buy a Sedan Bridge..." 
 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!"  
 Leopard Catamaran    53    Chris M.   Ft. Lauderdale FL   Gentlemen, So far the addition of Yacht Controller to the 53 Leopard Catamaran has now made docking significantly easier..... [It looks OEM]. We have enjoyed it during fishing as well makes for easy landing and controlling the fish. The best part is the new Leopard 53 comes with a wireless charging pad and the new Yacht Controller wireless charges. Just place it on the pad and leave. Feel free to send me any potential or new 53 Leopard clients if they have any questions about it. It’s a must addition!"  
 Sunseeker    100   Capt. Keith B   Ft. Lauderdale, FL    I have been a captain for over 30 years and I can say I am very impressed with the overall company. You have a wonderful product designed to help dock boats along with a great delivery team which provided me great service during the installation of the system! Your technician was as best as they come! You have definitely earned my business on all my boats in the future!  
 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." 
 Riva    68'    Carl T.    Ft. Lauderdale, FL   "Yacht Controller kicks ass! It works like a charm. I can dock by myself with no issues, piece of cake." 
 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."  
 Palmer Johnson   123 38M   Capt. Alan    Ft. Lauderdale, FL    "Anytime anyone wants to ask about the Yacht Controller tell them to call me as it's one of the best things I have ever done in the 25 years I have been in the industry."
