 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!" 
 Pershing    92   Capt. John H.   Mediterranean Sea and Ft. Lauderdale, FL   "Just wanted to give you some feedback on the Yacht Controller we installed on our new Pershing 9X back in June 2018. After taking delivery in Montenegro, we immediately had the Yacht Controller installed just prior to commencing a 4-month summer cruise all over Europe. The first trip with the owners commenced in Athens Greece and continued all throughout the Aegean Sea and all Islands in between including Santorini. After the Aegean, we continued on to the Ionian region of the Greek islands, which included visiting a different island every day. As you may be aware of docking in Europe, it is all stern to/ med mooring. As I almost always operating the boat single-handed, having the Yacht Controller in this environment was essential. It was the perfect tool for safe mooring. From any location on the boat, I was always in full control of positioning the vessel. Having complete control of the boat in the palm of my hand made the environment fun and very safe for everyone. We continued on to Italy Sardinia and concluded in Genova at the end of September. Maneuvering into the slings for loading onto the ship in Genova, made life easier and safer for all. To date, I have had not one issue or any form of failure with the yacht controller. I especially like the easy, simple installation with zero cutting or fabrication or alterations to the boat. I would confidently say, the best accessory fitted to the boat. Thank you, for your constant follow-up with me, since installing the Yacht Controller. M/Y BAD INFLUENCE 2.0"  
 Tempest   92   Jorge H.   Miami   "The Yacht Controller is indispensable yacht equipment and my captain could not run the yacht easily without it." 
 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!  
 Palmer Johnson   90'   Tim M.   New Orleans, LA   "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! " 
 Ocean Alexander   90   Daniel S.    Seattle, WA    "I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the 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 cross wind." 
 Pershing   90   Capt Rick   Miami, FL   "I have used the Yacht Controller on my 90' Pershing for over 5 years now and it works flawlessly! I love it! It makes handling a boat this size a breeze. Thank you for the great product." 
 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!"  
 Outer Reef    88'    Helen U.    Washington, Alaska and Cape Horn   "We have used the Yacht Controller across 20,000 nautical miles and absolutely love the system! There was a docking scenario where we were in an extremely tight spot and as we were pulling in, my brother from the dock asked me to handle the boat with the wireless remote and I was able to effectively pull the boat right in with no issues! It was one of the greatest accomplishments in my life! I would recommend the Yacht Controller to anyone!" 
 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 profession crew, the Yacht Controller is a very worthwhile asset to its operation."

 Azimut   86   Capt. Adam G.   -   "I love the Yacht Controller! I have used all over the world and it has aloud me to handle a vessel this size comfortably from anywhere on board the vessel! The freedom and ability to provide me full control is matched by no other control system in the market! I have run several other boats with Yacht Controller and always recommend them to boat owners!" 
 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!" 
 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." 
 Lazzara   80'    Frank W.    -   "I have been using your Yacht Controller for the past 7 years or so. My wife and I run a Lazzara 80'. We would not be able to do it as easily without your product (Yacht Controller)!"  
 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." 
 Westbay Sonship   78   Jim D.   Newport Beach, CA   "The boat resides behind a luxury private residence on a very tight canal, therefore, maneuvering in and out of the slip requires precision. One wrong move would certainly mean a collision with another boat. The Yacht Controller is a fantastic tool and locks in that 100% reliability that one would require from a wireless system. The Captain is able to operate the Yacht Controller with 100% signal lock from anywhere on the boat including the engine room! We observed 100% performance with no drop in signal between the handheld unit and the Yacht Controller transceiver for a measured the distance of 275 feet!" 
 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’.” 
 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!  
 Ocean Alexander   78   Mac S   Chicago IL   "Happy to report that the Yacht Controller is working flawlessly as expected. I continue to be a big fan." 
 Azimut   78   Alvaro   -   "This is my 3rd Yacht Controller over the last three yachts I have owned and I love the system! I recently had it installed on my Azimut and would never consider buying a boat with a Yacht Controller! Thank you for all your excellent service through the years!" 
 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." 
 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." 
 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!  
 Pershing   74    Keith W.   Virginia Beach, VA   The Yacht Controller works great! I have found so many uses for the Yacht Controller aside from docking. I can have friends and family safely board the boat as I hold the vessel dockside or pulling up to restaurants. People are always amazed as I effortlessly handle my boat! Thank you for the wonderful product. I continue to be a supporter of the product and always look to promote to prospective customers. 
 Azimut    72'    William M.    West Palm Beach, FL   "Yacht Controller makes boating a pleasure. The momentary functionality makes for great control of my boat. I love my Yacht Controller!" 
 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!"  
 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!" 
 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!" 
 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!"  
 Ocean Alexander   72   Tim D.   Chicago, IL   "I go through 29 locks through the Erie Canal and it makes it so much easier to get through them. Docking is also a breeze! I can no longer imagine boating without Yacht Controller!" 
 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." 
 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! 
 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. 
 Wendon   72   Clay M.   B.C. Canada    "This is a great product , one that can be used with great confidence. "I Wish" I had found Yacht Controller sooner, could have saved a couple of repairs. LOL" 
 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."  
 Pershing   70'    Robert W.    New York    "I love my Yacht Controller! I use it from Maine down to the Florida Keys and the through the Caribbean. At first, I must say I was hesitant to buy as was not sure I would use that often. Was I wrong! I use everything I go boating! I am thankful I did equip as it is a must-have product for my Pershing Yacht! Thank you for all your support." 
 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. 
 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! 
 Marlow   70   Dave C.   Mystic, CT   "I love my Yacht Controller! It makes the boating novice a professional! I am building a new 74' Marlow and it is a must have for my new boat!" 
 Trawler   70   Steve W.   West Coast, FL   "I love your product. I handle my boat with my wife alone and I could not do so had I not had Yacht Controller! Thank you for all your support!" 
 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!  
 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!" 
 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!" 
 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." 
 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! 
 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."  
 Azimut Fly   66'   Lance C.   Annapolis, MD   The wireless controller was an add-on to a 2017 Azimut 66 Fly that I took delivery on in November. This is an awesome device and they should be installed on every boat! 
 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."  
 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.
