Yacht Command / YAMAS for Mechanical Controls

YAMAS (YAcht controller Mechanically Actuated Systems)

Designed for boats equipped with cable or hydraulic controls

NEWS FROM GLENDINNING MARINEYacht Controller and Glendinning today introduced the YAMAS System (Yacht Controller Mechanical Actuator System) announced Glendinning Vice-President David Wollard.

This system developed in conjunction between Glendinning engineering and yacht Controller, is produced as a joint product from the two companies. It provides a revolutionary new way for boat owners with mechanical cable controls, to enjoy a wireless Yacht Controller system for docking, and at the same time have an emergency back-up system for their cable controls.

Yacht Controller's YAMAS wireless remote system allows a vessel's captain to control the yacht's gears, bow and stern thrusters, and anchor from anywhere on board, eliminating all sightline problems. It can also be used as an emergency back-up system should a failure of the cable controls occur.

YAMAS is the answer for finally making docking easier for cable-controlled boat owners who for years have yearned for an easy alternative to those hard to use cables, especially during docking. It also eliminates the concern of possibility of breaking a cable during maneuvering, and losing control of their yacht.

Dave Wollard Vice-President of Glendinning stated “Again we are proud to be at the forefront of creating products which make boating easier and safer for our customers and the boating public. YAMAS is a continuation of our product development which achieves that objective”.

Jerry Berton of Yacht Controller agreed. “ As we commented in our announcement last fall concerning our strategic partnership with Glendinning, the YAMAS system is another step toward making boating more enjoyable and user friendly for our customers”

Glendinning manufactures a complete family of electronic shift and throttle controls, which work with both electronic and mechanical propulsion systems. Yacht Controller eliminates all the frantic activities normally associated with docking. Yacht Controller is a winner of the NMMA Innovation Award and is certified by the FCC and patented by the US Patent Office.

Yamas (Yachtcontroller Mechanical Actuator System) works easily and simply at the push of a button when docking your boat.

Merely turn on the Yacht Controller system and your cable controls are disengaged and the wireless system takes over.

After you have completed your docking, or have safely moved away from your dock when departing, simply turn off the system and your mechanical controls will work normally.

YAMAS also provides an emergency back-up system should one of your shifting cables fail, since you can merely turn on YAMAS and take control of the boat.

YAMAS is available through your local Glendinning or Yacht Controller Dealer. The system is easy to install and connects your existing Mechanical cables via our smart actuator control, to your transmissions and then to our central command station,. This station in conjunction with the Yacht Controller wirelessly receives and transmits your commands at the touch of your finger for instantaneous and precise command of your boat.
