 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. 
 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." 
 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’.” 
 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!" 
 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!  
 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. 
 Silverton   46   Ben B.   Florida   "Your product has saved me millions! Well ok, maybe not millions, but thousands in gelcoat repairs." 
 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."  
 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." 
 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." 
 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." 
 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."  
 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." 
 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."  
 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." 
 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." 
 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. 
 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." 
 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." 
 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! 
 -   -   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. " 
 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'. 
 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! 
 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." 
 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!"  
 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."  
 Marlow   70   Mark H.   Ft. Lauderdale, FL   "We have a Yacht Controller that was installed by Lee Moore about 5 years ago in Lauderdale. We just recently had to replace the [key pad] on the remote due to wear. The whole process was made easy thanks to Lee’s help in diagnosing the problem over the phone. Also, Gerald made the repair and got it back to me quickly. This is the best piece of equipment we have onboard. It makes docking the boat as simple as getting in and out of your car. Thanks for the great service!" 
 Palmer Johnson   123 38M   Capt. Alan    Ft. Lauderdale, FL   "Anytime anyone wants to ask about the Yacht Controller tell them to call me as its one of the best things I have ever done in the 25 years I have been in the industry." 
 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."  
 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 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." 
 Prestige 2017   68'    Larry P.    Ft. Lauderdale, FL    I was referred to Yacht Controller by one of their customers. After my installation, I only have two words THE BEST! 
 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!" 
 Marlow   53   Ken M.   Galvaston, TX   "Yacht builders of any size should not be selling their boats without the Yacht Controller! I thank you for providing a wonderful product!" 
 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! 
 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!" 
 Monte Fino   72   Mark R   Great Lakes   "I put a yacht controller on my 72' Monte Fino and just loved it. Being able to single hand a large boat is amazing."  
 Riviera   52'   Micheal D   Great Lakes MI   "I love the Yacht Controller! I can handle the boat completely alone without my wife needed to help. Me and my wife use the boat extensively and rely heavily on the Yacht Controller. Makes life easy! Thank you for the system." 
 Neptunus    72'    John H.    Great Lakes/Michigan   "Ahhh Yacht Controller.... My wife saver!! It takes all the drama out of docking for a very pleasurable experience. I would not own another boat without one!"
