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.

Read more

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.

Is it easy to use Yacht Controller?2021-03-30T09:50:29+00:00

An individual who is proficient in the use and operation of boats can use the Yacht Controller remote intuitively and control their boat in a more precise, easy and safe way from anywhere on board. The remote is styled to give the owner tactile feel of all controls so you keep your eyes on your boat and select the correct commands at any time.

What do the Yacht Controller products do?2021-03-30T09:50:37+00:00

Yacht Controller products consisting of a handheld transmitter and a receiver allow you by wireless transmission to remotely control functions of your boat These functions are, but not limited to, the engines reverse and forward, the stern thruster, the bow thruster, the anchor windlass(s), management of engine acceleration, manoeuvre in automatic or manual mode. Allowing you move freely away from your helm station to anywhere aboard your boat.

In addition, among the products distributed by the Yacht Controller, there is JCS Plus, a fixed joystick where with the simple movement of the hand provides simultaneous operation of engines and thrusters to manoeuvre the boat in any direction. Ideal for berthing your boat from a fixed location aboard.

Why should I choose Yacht Controller over other manufactures?2021-03-26T11:45:29+00:00

Yacht Controller invented the wireless remote control of boats where engines and thrusters may be controlled remotely. Other manufacturers have produced (also against patents) copies that are poorly designed and unsafe.

Also consider and compare the design?

Yacht Controller with their experience and commitment to performance, reliability and safety over two decades is not matched by any competing device in the market whatever the claims.

Call us if you would like to discuss the merits of Yacht Controller.

How much does a Yacht Controller system cost?2021-03-26T11:45:54+00:00

The cost depends on several factors, including the type of engine control head aboard your boat. The number of functions you want to control in addition to the control of the engines and the choice of remote handset. These allow us to provide a cost effective tailored system for you while retaining the advantage of an upgrade path should your needs change in the future.

There are normally reasons for low value, lower cost products in any market. Choose carefully what company has wireless control of your boat. Yacht Controller is not a copy. Contact us for a quote.

Is Yacht Controller dual band better than single band?2021-03-26T11:46:19+00:00

YES. Yacht Controller always transmit simultaneously on two individual radio frequency bands (DUAL BAND) which are widely spaced in the radio frequency domain. Therefore, if the communication between the transmitter and the receiver is disturbed by a radio-frequency transmission device operating in the immediate vicinity, either legally or illegally, then communication and control continues by the other band. This means reliable communication even when a single band has wideband noise disruption that blankets the entire band.

Where a single band is used in some other manufactured products, there is no reliability that wireless commands from your remote will be actioned by the receiver.

How do the Yacht Controller wireless products work?2021-03-26T11:46:43+00:00

Yacht Controller wireless products use a coded digital signal transmitted from the handheld remote to the boat’s onboard receiver. The receiver system is equipped with microprocessors programmed directly in the laboratory, so it is impossible to interfere with other radio controls of thrusters, gangways or windlass controls available on the market, which instead use standard electronic components. Each transmitter has in fact a unique code programmed in the factory and different from all others. The coded signal is checked and verified to promote safety and security before operating the engine, thruster, windlass or other device connected.

Are there any safety features built into the Yacht Controller?2021-03-26T11:47:07+00:00

YES. Yacht Controller processes communication and operational diagnostics cyclically to ensure the  correct operation of the system at all times. This means visual indicators of each operation indicate a correct actual response of the command action.

Correct on/off start-up and ‘TakeCommand’ operation to meet regulations and safety.

Operates on two transmission bands continuously, not just frequency hopping around a single band. This means reliable communication even when a frequency band has wideband noise disruption.

Multi Processors design redundancy means just that. Each function operates with 2 CPU’s.If the system is not 100% operational the diagnostics warn of a malfunction.

Can a Yacht Controller be installed on my boat?2021-03-26T11:47:40+00:00

If the boat is equipped with electronic controls, it can be equipped with Yacht Controller. If your boat has mechanical controls we offer a solution. Contact us.

What is the use of having a Yacht Controller product on board?2021-03-26T11:48:05+00:00

The Yacht Controller products allow you to move your boat in the most varied situations in a simple and safe way by allowing you unrestricted visibility and control away from your helm stations. Having the ability to move on to the bow, stern or side decks allow you to better evaluate the situation.

During mooring they are an essential aid in approaching and moving away from the quay. Also, anchoring and picking up mooring buoys, attending refuelling station with restricted access or space. In shallow waters and in the presence of underwater obstacles you are able to command your boat from exactly the best viewpoint.

Do you have to cut or splice any wires to install Yacht Controller?2021-03-26T11:48:47+00:00

NO. Yacht Controller installations integrate with your existing boats electrical control systems to retain the integrity and operation of the boats existing controls.Yacht Controller never cuts wires and is a full Plug and Play integration which does not cut or bypass your manufactures installed electronic system, so it is secure, safe and does not void any warranties.Other manufactures also claim this although you would be wise to actually check as some claims are untrue which can lead to your boats control being unsafe.

What happens if my Yacht Controller does not work?2021-03-26T11:49:14+00:00

In this unlikely event, your engines, thrusters and anchor will remain safely in neutral and you will have normal operation of all of your yacht functions through their wired controls. In the absence of communication between the transmitter and receiver the receiver automatically deactivates the outputs and simultaneously activates the acoustic alarm.

What happens if a boat near me is operating a wireless Yacht Controller like mine?2021-03-26T11:49:42+00:00

Each transmitter has a unique code programmed at the factory and different from the others, chosen from over 65,000 combinations, therefore it is impossible to interfere with similar or same products. Even in the presence of several Yacht Controller’s’ operating simultaneously on adjacent boats incorrect activation is not possible as the transmitters continuously change the frequency of communication with the receiver.

Can the wireless signal be interfered by other devices?2021-03-26T11:50:10+00:00

Yacht Controller transmits simultaneously on two individual radio frequency bands which are widely spaced in the radio frequency domain. Therefore, if the communication between the transmitter and the receiver is disturbed by a radio-frequency transmission device operating in the immediate vicinity either legally or illegally then communication and control continues by the other band. In the extremely unlikely event of simultaneous interference on both bands, the receiver activates the buzzer for short periods, thus signalling the momentary interruption of communication with the transmitter. Due to the security of the communication protocol, it is not possible for the system to accept incorrect commands.

How do I know if the Yacht Controller transmitter is working and communicating with the receiver?2021-03-26T11:52:02+00:00

If the remote transmitter loses communication with the receiver, an audible alarm sounds on the receiver. With the NEMESIS remote this also vibrates to signal an occurrence.

Does Yacht Controller have throttle control?2021-03-26T11:52:25+00:00

YES, Yacht Controller offers optional engine throttle acceleration on the range of remote transmitters.

How long does it take to install one of the Yacht Controller products on my boat?2021-03-26T11:52:49+00:00

An average installation is performed in a day and includes system testing and operation. Installations are undertaken by Yacht Controller UK and regional dealers.

What happens if my boat does not have electronic controls?2021-03-26T11:53:12+00:00

It is not possible to install Yacht Controller directly on mechanical control heads. Our advice is to install compatible electronic control heads (we recommend MAREX ECS) in association with the Yacht Controller system of your choice. We can advise and provide a quotation for the complete installation.

Does Yacht Controller work if I only have one engine?2021-03-26T11:53:36+00:00

YES. Yacht Controller has been fitted to many boats with a single engine. Yacht Controller has been designed to maximise the use of any boat irrespective of one or two engines or thrusters.

Will Yacht Controller work on both 12 & 24v boats?2021-03-26T11:53:59+00:00

YES, Yacht Controller will operate on either voltage.

If I buy another boat can I bring my Yacht Controller System with me?2021-03-26T11:54:21+00:00

YES, it is possible. In the case of different electronic control heads or thruster controls the system is modular and can be upgraded or modules purchased to match the new boat configuration. Often owners may sell their boat with the Yacht Controller left installed, as it can add value.

What is the warranty period?2021-03-26T11:54:41+00:00

The warranty period is 2 years.

I have a metal boat; can I have Yacht Controller?2021-03-26T11:55:02+00:00

YES. Any radio transmission system can be shielded by metal surroundings. For these applications where the receiver may be placed in such a shielded location that an external antenna offered by Yacht Controller is enabled for correct RF communication between the remote and the receiver. Note: Receivers should also not be placed within engine rooms which are typically lined with a metal sound proofing or screening material.

How many functions can the Yacht Controller control?2021-03-26T11:55:25+00:00

A typical boat installation may vary between single or twin engines, 1or 2 thrusters and 1 or 2 windlasses and is matched to your boat. Yacht Controller typically controls 5 functions or 6 with the NEMESIS product although they can be expanded to control other functions like passerelles and other utilities aboard. Contact us if you have control ideas and we can advise.

Does the installation require modifications on my boat?2021-04-06T17:09:50+00:00

NO. The receiver is normally installed under the selected helm station in a suitable location out of sight. A single on/off switch will be allocated or fitted to the helm/dashboard.

Will Yacht Controller work with my Volvo Penta IPS?2021-04-06T17:09:19+00:00

YES. Yacht Controller is compatible with many IPS installations. Volvo also retain restrictions on some software platforms. Contact us for advice on your IPS yacht.

How can I know if the batteries in my transmitter have to be replaced?2023-05-23T14:46:20+00:00

Yacht Controller transceiver remotes are fitted with wireless charging. With earlier remotes when the low battery indicator LED flashes, the transmitter batteries must be replaced within two / three hours of operation. It is a good idea to always keep three 1.5 V AAA (LR06) high quality alkaline batteries in the boat or change them at least once a year at a memorable time. Do not install rechargeable cells. Follow the user manual instructions to replace the batteries when required.

How do you charge the handset?2021-03-26T11:57:18+00:00

For remote transmitters that are fitted with rechargeable batteries (non-removable) they should be positioned on the wireless charging pad as set out in the user manual.

Does the handset power down when not in use?2021-03-26T11:57:42+00:00

YES. The remote transmitter switches off automatically if it is not used for about 4 minutes. During any waiting period while manoeuvring your boat with Yacht Controller just select a thruster or engine briefly to reset the time out period.

Does the Yacht Controller have dynamic positioning?2021-03-26T11:58:08+00:00

Where a boats engine and thruster control installation has a dynamic positioning  system (otherwise known as a skyhook) that is correctly installed and operational then this option can be made available with Yacht Controller. One system is Volvo Penta.

What is the range of wireless products?2023-05-23T14:45:06+00:00

The radio control range is designed to meet the requirement of the yacht. For the larger or non fiberglass yachts we use a high performance CAN Bus external antenna.

Is the transmitter waterproof?2021-03-26T11:58:58+00:00

The transmitter housings have a IP67 water ingress protection rating and they float if dropped in water.

What happens if I do not turn off my wireless Yacht Controller remote when I do not use it?2021-03-26T11:59:19+00:00

The remote transmitter switches off automatically if it is not used for about 4 minutes and the receiver will start an acoustic alarm if the Yacht Controller receiver is still on. To deactivate the receiver, press the on/off switch installed at the helm station. To switch off the transmitter, keep the button pressed until all the LEDs turn on (safety time greater than three seconds for child-proof operation). Releasing the on/off button, the transmitter switches off completely. The confirmation of the deactivation is given by the turning off of the LEDs on the remote.
