DOCKMATE, an extra pair of hands on board

You as a yacht skipper can now maneuver your ship from any place on board thanks to our DOCKMATE wireless control. 

Flawlessly operate two motors, horn, bow thruster, stern thruster and windlass with the tips of your fingers. Watch to the centimeter how you berth your boat safely.

The DOCKMATE is a wireless extension of your engine controls while maintaining the exact feeling (eg response time gearbox) and of all the accessories mentioned above.

The European developers, as yachtmen with 40 years of experience, were looking for an affordable wireless system. This could not be found on the market until now. After years of testing, and building prototypes, we finally have a highly reliable product. This system allows every skipper to dock his ship single-handed. Done with uncertainties; how far am I from the jetty? According to the crew, often more than one meter, in reality 30 cm only, or vice-versa.

Our unit will pay for itself in a relatively short time by not sustained damage. You know how much fixing a scratch or, worse, a crack in your ship costs. It can also replace a winch or muscle strength when mooring, we let our own boat do the work through our DOCKMATE to tighten the ropes.

 

Technical

All boats with electronic engine control can be equipped with our DOCKMATE system, regardless the type or length of the yacht.

Our transmitter, preferably worn with a neck strap, is completely waterproof and floats. It has the size of an iPhone. In our most simple configuration, the transmitter sends a coded digital signal to the receiver which operates the gears and horn. Operates on 433Mhz frequency for Australia. The system can be modularly extended with bow thruster, stern thruster and windlass. DOCKMATE also exists for ships with one engine.

Operation is easy, accurate, safe and reliable, and can be done from any location on board. Our transmitter has a very simple, clear layout. When the transmitter somehow slips out of your hands, then immediately all systems drop to neutral.

The DOCKMATE signal reaches up to 50 meters. It can also be used from the pier (although this is strongly not recommended). Our receiver is mounted behind the dashboard and measures about 22 by 22 cm. Each DOCKMATE system is unique and will not be disturbed by any other DOCKMATE. The installation time is a maximum of 1 working day, including testing of the system.

Factory Warranty is 3 years.
