 Sea Ray   61   Scott B.   Pensacoloa, Fl   "I purchased the Yacht Controller in January 2008 and remain a fan of the product today. I talk to boat owners all the time about the product; people are always impressed with the ease and simplicity when I dock for fuel or just an overnight stay. I am amazed at the number of boat owners that have not heard of the Yacht Controller. I own a 610 SeaRay Sundancer and the Yacht Controller allows me to operate the boat, dock and tie up without assistance, it makes big boating easy. I was concerned about service and follow up after the sale since I live in Pensacola Florida, not a problem. Good news, the product has performed flawlessly and follow-up has been awesome both in person and online. I would not be without the Yacht Controller!" 
 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." 
 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......." 
 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." 
 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." 
 Meridian   44    Yan H.    Quebec City, Quebec Canada    "I presently own a Meridian 441 with Yacht Controller wireless remote and I love it!"  
 Marlow   57'    Keith M.    Raleigh, N.C.    "I love my Yacht Controller and so do all my friends who own one! I would not consider buying another boat without one! Thank you" 
 Krogen   57   Robert B.   Rapids City, SD   "I love it! It is especially helpful in docking - I have a 57' boat that has to go through a 60' lock to dock. It works great for this!" 
 Marquis   59   Joseph M.   Rhode Island   "It gives you the ability to create your own confident spot on the boat to maneuver the boat."  
 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! 
 Riva    88' Riva    Jesus S.    Sag Harbor, New York    "The Yacht Controller is easy to use and works perfectly while moving in and out of the marina. It allows me to single-handedly dock this boat where without I would never be able to do so! Thank you!"  
 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!" 
 Viking   70   Bob L.   San Diego, CA   "Well my Kristina 8 is safely here in San Diego. I just spent the weekend on her and operated completely alone. What a huge difference your Yacht Controller makes. Anchoring is a breeze and things like just adjusting lines at the dock (thrusters) is a piece of cake. I had to drop my wife and dog off at a hotel dock and just stood on the swim platform and eased it in with inches of movement...no problems! Moving a 70' boat around like this is almost unfair but...I LOVE IT! Huge thanks for a truly wonderful product!" 
 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!" 
 Californian   61   -   San Francisco, CA   We are on our Benicia Yacht Club's "Summer Cruise" currently docked at "Grindstone Joe's" private island marina in the Sacramento Delta (about 70 miles by water southeast of San Francisco). We called our fellow cruisers who were already docked and were told to come on in and side tie to starboard- lots of dock space. When we arrived 20 minutes later, two other boats had pulled in, leaving us about 65 feet (for our 61.5 foot boat). With about 10 of our companions watching (some anxiously), with your Yacht Controller, while standing on the starboard side deck so I could see both bow and stern (and hear the many "helpful suggestions"),slid Seasons into the available space. I would not have tried this maneuver operating from either our bridge or aft cockpit stations alone.  
 Marquis    72'    Danny P.    San Jose, CA   "I like the Yacht Controller on my old boat especially when we are pulling anchor and we are up in the bow and needing to move forward as the chain comes in. I look forward to equipping my new build!"  
 60 Sea Ray Sundancer   60   Erick U.   San Juan, Puerto Rico   "I'm very happy with my system! This system is my assistant!!" 
 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." 
 Hatteras GT and Viking Sportfish   45 and 68   Stanley R.    Sarasota, FL   I am a repeat customer and can say I love the Yacht Controller! It gives me the total control I need to handle my yacht from anywhere on board. I do a lot of boating on the west coast of Florida and in the Bahamas and have found the Yacht Controller to be very helpful for docking, any close quarters maneuvering and I especially like to be able to hold the boat to a side dock while friends and family are boarding or disembarking. Thank you for providing a great product!  
 Marlow   58   Bill P.   Sarasota, FL    I love my Yacht Controller on my Marlow! its the best piece of equipment on my boat! Thank you for a wonderful product. 
 Ocean Alexander   88   Jeff H.   Seattle, WA   "The Yacht Controller provides incredible flexibility to the operation of our 90 foot Ocean Alexander. My yacht's particular installation provides complete remote control of the bow and stern thruster as well as each main engine in idle forward or reverse. As an owner operator especially, the Yacht Controller allows me to single handedly dock and undock my yacht easily without assistance onboard or dockside. With the range of the Yacht Controller I will hold or maneuver my yacht alongside a dock while working on the dock securing and letting go the lines myself. And, while setting and retrieving the anchor, the Yacht Controller allows me to maneuver my yacht from the bow while observing firsthand the lead of the anchor chain. Whether a yacht is manned by an owner or a professional crew, the Yacht Controller is a very worthwhile asset to its operation."  
 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!"  
 Holland    70   David B.    Seattle, WA   "I had the first one ever sold and installed in the Northwest on Bingo, still going strong since 2002!"  
 Ocean Alexander   90   Daniel S.    Seattle, WA   "I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful product. I am,..... one of your biggest proponents for the wireless controller. Attached is a video of me docking the 90 Ocean Alexander in Anacortes, WA. Thank you for working with us (Ocean Alexander Seattle,WA) in this regard and I look forward to getting more of these units on our yachts. It really is as easy as it looks. There was about a 15/20 kts crosswind."  
 Outer Reef   65    John H.   Seattle, WA   "The key for many boating couples is that one of them usually the wife is not confident with the close quarter maneuvering that is required in marinas. This product allowed my wife to gain confidence and be willing to operate our vessel in close quarter situations."  
 Hatteras    72'    Kevin C.    Seattle, WA   "Hi Dennis. We got a yacht controller almost two years ago and love it! Thanks"  
 Prestige   50   Mick D.   Seattle, WA   "The Yacht Controller for my IPS boat is GREAT!! Very helpful." 
 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." 
 Alexander Marine   88   Jeff H.   Seattle, WA.   "The Yacht Controller provides incredible flexibility to the operation of our 90 foot Ocean Alexander.

 Marlow   61   Marc O   Seattle, WA.   "Just wanted to share with you how satisfied I am with my yacht controller. I have been cruising for the past three days and I have thoroughly enjoyed docking. It makes such a difference. Even going through the lock in Seattle was a pleasure with the yacht controller. In every marina where I went everybody admired my Yacht Controller. It worked perfectly. I managed to dock {my yacht} even with a 35 knot side wind! Thanks for having sold this to me." 
 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."  
 MarineMax   -   Guy P.   St Petersburg   "I wanted to send you this note to thank you for the great sales and service support. The Yacht Controller System has proven to be a reliable product. Yacht Controller is a great aide for docking and a piece of equipment our customers enjoy having on board their boats. Our experience in the marketplace has shown that customers will buy larger boats if they feel they can control them. Yacht Controller clearly provides this solution since it gives customers complete control when docking from anywhere on board. As a MarineMax team member who has now sold and installed many Yacht Controllers, I highly recommend the system to our customers as I am confident it will enhance their boating pleasure and experience." 
 Lagoon Catamaran    43'    Douglas F.    St Petersburg, FL    "...It works great! The guys did a great job, and I loved the way you all responded to the issues. This is the true measure of a company. You guys get five stars in my book. I look forward to using the controller for years to come. This device gives me real freedom to run the boat with limited to no crew support. Thank you again for making this happen so quickly."  
 Antares   44'    John L.    St. Augustine, FL    "I am a Yacht Controller FREAK!! Have I told you how much I LOVE my YC?!?!?! Warm Florida Regards, John" 
 California Yacht    61   Bill P   St. Downieville, CA   "This last weekend, we (along with 3 other large yachts) sterned into the Napa Valley Yacht Club docks. Our hosts at Napa Valley were really impressed at the functionality of your Yacht Controller. Bear on in mind that in Napa- “cost is irrelevant”. They asked about the system and I gave your product rave reviews (which they could see for themselves). " 
 Sea Ray Sundancer   -   MarineMax St. Pete, FL   St. Pete, FL   Our very own Capt. Brad bringing this beautiful yacht over to the haul out , he's standing on the forward deck controlling her with a yacht controller we just installed . I want one! 
 Hatteras    77'   Greg D.   St. Pete, FL    I had 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.  
 Azimut   48   Kris G.   St. Petersburg, FL   Just wanted you to know that we went on our trip to Key West, and used the Controller every day. It worked perfectly ! Makes docking so much easier!! I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the team !  
 MainShip Trawler   40    Dick A.   St. Petersburg, FL   Tony, Sandi and I are just completing a 10 day shakedown cruise in preparation for our March departure for the Great Loop. I used the Yacht Controller in every docking scenario and on some departures. I'm glad I have it! We have found the Yacht Controller to be very useful in close maneuvering situations, such as docking and locking. As our competency has increased so has our ability to handle more adverse conditions like wind and current. The ability to stand on the stern and guide the boat directly into a slip has made the investment worthwhile.  
 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"

 Viking Sportfish   61    Bob S.    Stuart, FL    "I absolutely love my Yacht Controller! Like you told me, Tony, it is a lifesaver! My wife can't thank you enough. Thank you for the wonderful product that has helped us tremendously in enjoying our Viking Sportfish!" 
 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!!" 
 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   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." 
 Trawler   40   Gus A.    Titusville, FL    "I have a Trawler named "Summerland" and as the owner of this boat I am happy to have the Yacht Controller on board as it has made the experience amazing. Maneuvering my boat is easy and I no longer have to be concerned if someone is there to help me. I can simply walk over, pick up the line and bring my boat in single handed. Yelling to my wife to tie lines is a thing of the past, a simple push and I am smoothly moving in the direction I need to go. I can spin my boat in place and all with one hand. My boat was equipped with the Yacht Controller in 2005. Here we are in 2013 and it's still going strong."  
 Viking   65   Tom T.   Toledo Yacht Club Toledo, OH   "It’s the best thing I ever did, I have only one regret I should have done it when I bought the boat I waited a year. It’s like having two more people on the boat. I talked to the Owner of yacht Controller at the Boat Show and it’s a gift. I can’t be happier with it. I tell everyone to buy it don’t wait." 
 Marlow   72   John R. Kazmer.   USA   To all Marlow owners who don’t have a Yacht Controller – it is the best investment I have made since I got my Marlow in 2008. My wife and I run "good time Charlie" a 72 command bridge by ourselves. With the yacht commander docking is a lot easier because I can help my wife with bumpers and lines and still have complete control of the boat. It makes anchoring so much easier especially bringing up the anchor. I do not know how we did without it. I would not try it but with yacht commander you could run the boat single handedly. If you run the boat yourself without a crew yacht commander is a must have. 
 Marlow   65   Steve I.   USA   "This needs to be advertised as the marriage saver! We used to have the use the headset's every time we would pull in to dock but with the Yacht Controller I can do all the lines and control the boat by myself without help from anyone else. I love it, it makes life so much better!"
