About Us

The History of Yacht Controller

Yacht Controller, recognised by national and international patents, originated in 1999 when the first prototype was developed. A remote control system that could enable a boat to be berthed without assistance using any combination of engines and thruster control all from a wireless remote handset.

After 4 years of continuous development, Yacht Controller was officially launched at the 2002 Genoa Boat Show and aroused immediate interest. The launch slogan was “everyone’s dream is to move freely from bow to stern without having to stay at the helm.” This dream has already come true for thousands of enthusiastic users all over the world.

The ability to manoeuvre a boat on your own and moor it with the greatest of ease, controlling and correcting its position at all times in complete safety has made Yacht Controller an essential aid for many owners of yachts of all sizes from 28ft to over 150ft.

In 2004, Yacht Controller won the NMMA Innovation Award for “best technological innovation” at the Miami Boat Show.

Our company philosophy aims to continuously innovate with new products. The later release of the DUAL BAND model followed the JCS fixed joystick, the remote hand held joystick EN-JOY and the most recent V.IPS model for pod drives is testament to this philosophy.

The different Yacht Controller models can be integrated with the majority of electronic boat helm control systems on the market and are designed to work with all inbuilt safety systems to ensure the safety and reliability of the installed controls.
