 Sea Ray Sedan Bridge   51   Jonathan W.   Annapolis, MD   "I am really enjoying the Yacht Controller! Its a great feature to the boat. I think all larger vessels should have it as a standard." 
 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" 
 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!" 
 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." 
 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!" 
 Azimut   52   Rich K.   New Jersey   "I had a Yacht Controller installed about 5 years ago and love it! I would do a commercial on it if asked I think so highly of it. In fact, I refer to it as my "Wife Saver"" 
 Menorquin   52   Lee H.   New Jersey   "I have owned my yacht controller for approximately three years. It still remains, along with my thrusters, the best investment I have made for the enjoyment of my boat. Operating a 52' vessel with a 16.5' beam with two people, or even alone, becomes simple and stress free when utilizing the yacht controller. Everyone knows the stress and concern when approaching a strange dock or even a familiar one, when no one to help is around. With the hand held yacht controller making lines fast with one or two hands on deck becomes as simple as walking around your deck. I have on many occasions, either alone, or with only one other person on hand, taken my vessel out without any concern whatsoever regarding whom might be there to help when I return. With the yacht controller, you don't have to. Why sit at the dock because there's no one who can help you? With the yacht controller, you truly don't."  
 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!  
 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." 
 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."  
 Krogen Express   52'    Steve W.    Pompano, FL    "I love the Yacht Controller! I handle the boat all alone. My wife appreciates the system as she no longer has to help with lines or fenders." 
 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." 
 Carver   53   Capt. Ron   New York   "I love the fact that I have complete control of the boat while in any location on the boat while docking. I can accurately move the boat within inches in any direction I choose."  
 Selene   53   Nancy D.   Pacific NW   "The Yacht Controller gives me wireless control of the thrusters as well as transmission, and windlass. I love it! It enables me to be outside on deck where I have a better visibility when docking or anchoring. In late April, after the day of training on the Yacht Controller, I single-handed the two hours from Sidney in Canada to Roche Harbor in the U.S., having to first dock at customs before docking at my assigned slip. This was then repeated upon my return to Canada. The purpose of my cruise to Roche Harbor was to attend the annual Pacific Northwest Selene Rendezvous. At the final dinner I was awarded a handheld VHF for the accomplishment of single - handling. This successful cruise was a real confidence booster for me and it was wonderful for my accomplishment to be recognized."  
 Navigator   53   Phil S.   Illinois    "I think it is an excellent aid to the boater. Now I can single hand backing into our slip. Folks are actually amazed at how responsive the device is and how it makes reverse operations so flexible. In fact last week (Oct. 2010) I was alone on the boat (Navigator 53) and moved her some 150 yards betweeen docks all backing up and parallel to boats and docks and never did I feel that her movements were out of control. I recommend the unit." 
 Carver Pilothouse   53   James R.   Sandusky, OH   "I am the 89th Commodore of Sandusky Yacht Club, a 11S-year old Club with 1,000 members and a fleet of 6S0 boats located on Sandusky Bay in Lake Erie. Each year at our annual Regatta we have many water events for both power and sail boats. This year in our docking contest, twin screw classification trlck Glynos garnered the top position using his "Yacht Controller" on his 53 ft I Carver Pilothouse Motoryacht. Nick amazed the judges and spectators alike by how effortlessly he was able to dock with the use of the remote control while standing on the bow of hislboat. Nick has docked his boat at many of our sailaways in spots where he would never have been able without the use of the remote controlled "Yacht Controller." It has become a crowd-pleasing event to witness Nick's docking abilities using your product; it has piqued the interest of many." 
 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!" 
 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." 
 Marlow   53   Paul G.   USA   "It allows me to squeeze my 18' beam Marlow into a 20' slip every time, without the Yacht Controller there is no way I could do that. The ability to be in the cockpit is critical and I couldn't do it with out it. Marriage saver!" 
 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." 
 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!"  
 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!" 
 Krogen Express   53'    Robert L    Jupiter, FL    "I travel through 70+ locks a year! I love it! I'd be lost without it. Eliminates all visibility challenges and helps me calmly dock my boat." 
 Carver   53' Voyager   Rick K.    Michigan    "I could not imagine docking my Carver without my Yacht Controller! It takes all the stress out of docking. It's a marriage saver!"  
 Princess   54   Luis N.   Sag Harbour Long Island, NY   "I was comparing the Dockmate and the technology of wireless control considering purchasing [my wireless system] with plans to travel to Sag Harbor with our Captain. We were discussing potential options and he recommended that we should look at Yacht Controller. The next day we were on the dock in Sag Harbor and a 62 Pershing pulled into the next slip on the very windy afternoon. The captain who was alone put the boat into the slip with relative ease. I immediately asked him how he had made it look so easy operating the boat from the stern. He showed us the Yacht Controller and told me I would enjoy the experience. I researched even further and discovered this company has been around for many years and recommended by many of the best Yacht brands in the world including Princess Yachts. I decided to go with the Yacht Controller based on my gut feeling and positive research. I spoke with Tony from The Yacht Group and he was extremely professional and courteous and accommodating and made our experience seamless. He coordinated an installation almost immediately! Fortunately our experience has been one of the best so far in our boating life and for us [my wife and family] is a total game changer. It has given my wife and I total confidence to enjoy our boating experience!" 
 Sea Ray   54   Richard N.   New Jersey   "I had the opportunity to use the Yacht Controller this weekend when we went to a less than familiar port. I was very pleased with the way that it worked. The wireless switch makes turning it on a breeze. I was asked by one dock hand if I was playing video games."  
 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." 
 Riviera   54   Mark B.   New York   "It has been the greatest marital aide ever invented for boating. I am going to make a video on my boat with the NY City skyline to put on your website. I feel completely confident when docking at marinas. My yacht controller saves me $50,000 yearly in captain salaries. On three different occasions, I have astonished boat captain's with many years experience." 
 Viking   54   Donald G.   San Dusky, OH   "Wow! What an incredible piece of equipment to have for stern docking...to be able to leave the bridge and the controls I've been acquainted with for 35 years and travel anywhere; bow, aft deck, other side on the boat, has certainly allowed me the assurance and confidence of a smooth docking. As a matter of fact, I found myself using it more often than necessary. I ask myself often, why did I wait so long!" 
 Pana   54   John M.    Boca Raton, FL    "I chose to install a Yacht Controller on my 54' Flybridge Motor Yacht to enable me to have better visibility during docking (coming and going), setting and retrieving the anchor, and general close quarters control. My wife and I no longer have to yell instructions unseen to each other, or fumble with radio headsets, and I can literally move the boat exactly where I want to go while seeing the exact distances to the dock or pier. The removal of stress during the docking is as important as the controlling of the boat. I also use it to control the thrusters to help set the fenders while at the dock. Like most, I wondered if my use of the Yacht Controller would justify the cost of the system; but after using it I now understand its a vital control system that allows calmer and safer docking due to the confidence of being able to control the boat from the best vantage point. I now consider it to be essential equipment and would not want to operate a 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    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!"  
 Hampton   55   Larry J.   Maryland   "I love it! I can't imagine running a boat without it." 
 Selene   55   Collin's Marine Service    Anacortes, WA   "Hope all is well, customer is loving your unit and frankly so am I. It sure makes life easy backing a 65 boat in and tying it up single handed easy." 
 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!" 
 Westbay   55   Celeste K   Roach Harbor, WA   As a female boater, I had my finest docking moment at Roach Harbor with my Yacht Controller in hand! I had to dock the boat between two boats with a few inches on each side in clearance and was able to do so all by myself as men running down the docks arrived in amazement and started to clap! It was a great feeling. I would never own another boat without one! 
 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!!"  
 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! 
 Neptunus   55   Tim S.   London, ON   “It works great and definitely worth it. I would recommend it to anyone.” 
 Azimut   55   Julio D.   Puerto Rico   "The Yacht Controller has been my best investment. The ease of use and the security features are exceptional. Every boat must have one. This devices make any person an expert Captain." 
 Sea Ray Sundancer    55   Richard W.   -   "I wanted to update you on the Yacht Controller. It is the most amazing thing I have ever used! Our Boat has a 16' beam and I dock in an 18' wide slip, no problem!! I have an audience every time I come in. 15 people standing on the dock watching. My Wife and I go all the time, Have no problem handling the 55 by ourselves. Just wanted to tell you how happy we are with your 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! 
 Azimut   55   Paul H.   Cayman Islands   "I find the Yacht Controller is a reliable and invaluable tool for navigating and docking my Azimut 55." 
 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." 
 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." 
 Ferretti   55   James W   Hillsborough, CA   "I have really enjoyed the Yacht Controller on my Ferretti. It works great." 
 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!" 
 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. 
 Navigator   56   Gordon S.   Port Moody, B.C.   "I am very pleased with the Yacht Controller and use it all the time. The main use for me is on the BC coast when anchoring, we very often have to run a stern line to the shore. The Yacht Controller, needless to say, makes this manoeuvre so very much easier and keeps my wife much more relaxed......." 
 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."
