 Sea Ray   L550   James K.   Ft. Lauderdale, FL   "Yacht Controller is the most important piece of equipment you can have on your boat! There is no product you will find safer for docking assistance. It will completely change the way you boat. Thank you for this great product!"  
 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!" 
 Tempest   92   Jorge H.   Miami   "The Yacht Controller is indispensable yacht equipment and my captain could not run the yacht easily without it." 
 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"  
 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." 
 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 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."  
 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!"  
 Alexander Marine   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 of 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."

 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!" 
 Azimut   86   Capt. Adam G.   -   "I love the Yacht Controller! I have used it all over the world and it has allowed 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's 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!" 
 Azimut   84   Kris G.   St. Petersburg, FL   "The Yacht Controller is really a great product. It has taken a lot of the stress out of docking for me since I can now control my boat from the stern and see exactly where I am going and adjust accordingly. The employees in your company that I have dealt with have all been very professional and friendly." 
 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." 
 Ferretti   83   Anonymous   -   "The Yacht Controller is a game changer! It changes the dynamics of single handed boating! It makes for easy docking even on this 83' Ferretti!" 
 Symbol   80   Chris W.   San Diego, CA   "I purchased a Yacht Controller at the 2020 Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show. You guys had it installed on my yacht in San Diego just a few days later. The installation went smoothly and quickly. The Yacht Controller has been functioning perfectly ever since then."  
 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." 
 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)!"  
 Pershing   80   Rob L.   -   "We recently purchased a lesser known controller for our 80 ft boat. It was plagued with problems. We contacted the Yacht Controller. They uninstalled the original and installed a new Yacht Controller. The new Yacht Controller is amazing ! We learned how to use the 1st time out. This is a great company with a fantastic staff ! No doubt YACHT CONTROLLER is the route to go ! " 
 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!" 
 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!  
 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’.” 
 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!" 
 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." 
 Horizon   75'   Capt. Damion J.   Riviera Beach, FL   "I have always been pro wing stations at either side of the vessel and would never have given the time of day to a wireless control but having now done over 100 dockings with the Yacht Controller I think it is fantastic! From start to finish the customer service was top notch. The Yacht Controller reacts very well with the boat and can be tuned to have more power where needed. It's slick and easy to use, quick to take command and has no wireless delays. It has a long range so you can really drive from any convenient position you choose. 10/10 would recommend it to any future clients." 
 Neptunus   75   Norman A.   Pinehurst, TX   "The Yacht Controller was one of the best components that I bought for my yacht, Bettina Vita (Neptunus 75 foot). Installation was very quick and the personnel knew what they were doing. I will never own another yacht without a Yacht Controller. I constantly used my Yacht Controller and found it to be a wonderful investment. I cannot tell you how many times I would pull into a dock space and people would ask how I did that from the bow of my vessel. It is by far best when paired with both the bow and stern thrusters. It provided increased safety for personal transfer as well as maintenance of the vessel. I can’t imagine not having one....." 
 Hatteras   75   Jeffrey W.   Pensacola, FL   "I love the yacht controller! I am able to move the boat single handed when needed. I could go on and on about the positives…" 
 Hatteras   75   Tom T.   Ft. Myers, FL   "We had our Yacht Controller installed upon taking delivery of our semi-custom built Hatteras 75 MY November of 2015. We moved up from a 56’ Sea Ray as owner-operators so this was a leap for my wife and I. However, I took control of the help first off in the slip and have never relinquished it since. We tow a 33’ center console and I can honestly say, if it wasn’t for the Yacht Controller, we would have to have staff with us. Not that staff is a bad thing, it just wasn’t how we desired to operate. The Yacht Controller has never failed me." 
 Princess   75   Tom C.   West Palm Beach, FL   Feel free to use me anytime as a reference! I love your products! The Yacht Graphx lettering design for my boat was fantastic and the Yacht Controller is a must have for my boating experience on my 75' M/Y Princess. I welcome your team on the boat for demonstration at the upcoming Princess Show. Thank you for all your support! 
 Sunseeker   75   Doug S.   Mercer Island, WA   "I have been very happy with the Yacht Controller. I don’t know how I would dock the boat without it. It allows me to walk about and see all of the blind spots. Also it allows me to tie off lines all by myself. It is also very helpful when anchoring, to be able to set the anchor from the bow and visually see the chain."  
 Hatteras 75 MY   75   Mari T.   Ft. Myers Beach, FL   "We had our Yacht Controller installed upon taking delivery of our semi-custom built Hatteras 75 MY November of 2015.

 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 when 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 it to prospective customers."  
 Sunseeker Predator 2022   74   Earl S.   Ft.Lauderdale, FL   "This is my 3rd boat and it was installed the same day I took delivery. While I practiced docking without the remote, I prefer to use it because being on deck allows much better visibility and safety than the helm position. In 10 years of use on 3 boats I’ve never had a glitch or problem. It’s a dead-nuts reliable system." 
 Ferretti   72   Spiro P.   Chicago, IL   "I had Yacht Controller's service manager fly up and install the system on my new 2021 72 Ferretti equipped with Xenta controls. The installation was completely plug and play. We went on several test runs both at the dock and away from the slip and the system worked great! I am very happy with my new Yacht Controller in supporting my docking needs. Thank you for all your support!" 
 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! 
 Marquis   72   Chris T.   Rocky River, OH   "Jimmy was awesome to deal with. Very knowledgeable about his product as well as how it would interface and be installed in my boat. Very positive attitude, clean and neat work disassembling and reassembling the boat back. Everything worked great and I'm looking forward to enjoying the benefits of having the 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." 
 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" 
 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!" 
 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."  
 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!" 
 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!" 
 Marlow   72   John K.   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 a Yacht Controller you could run the boat single handedly. If you run the boat yourself without a crew, Yacht Commander is a must have.  
 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!"  
 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!"
