SAFE DOCKING MADE EASY

We get it – 

We’re boaters too!

We have operated boats from dinghies to yachts and we have a former US Coast Guardsman / Machinery Technician and a 100-ton USCG licensed captain on our crew.

We understand the stress that can occur when the captain or owner is depending on the input from others to be his eyes, so to speak, and help guide him to a safe docking of the boat because he is stuck behind the helm.
 

We know the sense of relief that comes from being able to leave the helm for a closer look at our surroundings, and to still be in complete, confident control of the boat’s movement from anywhere aboard!

“When we leave a slip early and there is no one to help us untie our lines, we use the Dockmate to keep the boat close to the dock until my wife or I can untie the lines and get back aboard safely.”

CONNECTING YOUR DOCKMATE®


All boats with electronic engine controls can be equipped with the Dockmate® system, regardless of the length or type of the boat. Our Twist transmitter, preferably worn with the included neck strap, is completely waterproof and floats. It is only the size of an iPhone and has a very simple, clear layout.
In our most simple configuration, the Twist transmitter sends a coded digital signal to the receiver which operates the engine(s) and horn. The system can be extended modularly to also control the bow thruster, stern thruster and windlass.
Operation is easy, accurate, safe and reliable, and can be done from any location aboard the boat. If the Twist transmitter somehow slips out of your hands, then all systems immediately drop to neutral. There is also an automatic shut off after 30 minutes of non-use.
The Dockmate® signal reaches up to 165 feet (50 meters). The receiver is mounted behind the dashboard and measures about 9.4 x 7.9 x 3.2.” Each Dockmate® system is unique and will not be disturbed by any other Dockmate®.





  • Forward, backwards, sideways, and diagonally and the boat will move in that direction! If you "twist" the joystick knob, then it will turn the boat sharply for tight quarter maneuvering as well.
     

  • You can also push down on the joystick to activate the horn. 
     

  • The bow & stern thrusters can be operated individually and separately using the buttons below the joystick. 
     

  • One or two anchors can be raised and lowered with a specific button as well. 
     

  • The highly-advanced DockControl software allows us to calibrate and configure the joystick so that its behavior is properly customized to the boat's equipment and your specific needs. The Twist joystick can also offer variable-speed, fully proportional engine throttle and thruster control, if you boat is equipped with a proportional thruster.

“I like to get underway early in the morning and I don’t want to have to wake up my wife and son. I enjoy the calmness in the morning.” 

These Boaters were wowed with the results!

“It is really easy and the best investment I’ve made for my boat. Incredible....amazing!”

“My wife & I crew the boat ourselves. The ability to work the bow for mooring & anchoring is a real benefit. And then of course just the ability to move around the boat with the remote.”

Dan

“It performed as expected, immediately, all functions operated. They were able to dial it in by the software proportionally, forward & reverse. I am able to walk to the transom and get a better line of sight.”
