The new, state-of-the art Dockmate® wireless remote control system will allow a boater to easily operate single or twin engines, thrusters, anchor winch and horn from anywhere on board with a small handheld device.

The Dockmate® is a wireless extension of a boat's controls and it has the exact same feeling and response time of the accessories mentioned above.

With the Dockmate® system, a boater is able to leave the helm and get a much closer look at his surroundings in marinas and other tight quarters, while still in complete control of the boat's movement, resulting in stress-free docking.

Dockmate® offers 4 wireless remote control systems: the Single, Twin, the Twist 3-axis joystick with proportional control and Twist IPS for Volvo Penta IPS or Zeus pods.

A 5 function Dockmate® system which controls two engines, a thruster, anchor winch and horn is available for a retail price of only $6,800.

Each Dockmate® system includes plug and play cables for most brands. Other features include:

  • 2 way communication, ensuring faultless operation.
