Steer yourself to Dockmate's stand for stress-free docking solutions

Dockmate is to exhibit its remote boat docking technology, with fingertip control, that can be used to steer a boat in a tight slip, negotiate challenging docking conditions and manoeuvre a boat singlehandedly with ease.

Built by yachtsmen with over 40 years’ experience to simplify the difficult and stressful docking experience, the Dockmate is a simple, future-proof boat steering system which controls, to the centimetre, how to berth safely.

The transmitter, worn with a neck strap, has a signal reaching up to 50 metres, is completely waterproof and floats. In its most simple configuration, the transmitter sends a coded digital signal to the receiver which operates the gears and horn. The system can be modularly extended with a bow thruster, stern thruster and up to 2 windlasses.

John Ainsworth, Business Development Director for Dockmate Direct explains “The transmitter’s layout is simple, its modular technology will never become obsolete and if you buy a new boat you can take your Dockmate system with you”.

All boats with electronic engine control, regardless of the type or length of yacht, can be equipped with the Dockmate system which comes with a three-year warranty and full technical support.

The product, designed to eliminate all the worry and uncertainty associated with docking was developed by Belgian entrepreneur Dirk Illegems and now has over 31 countries in its distribution network.
