In his free time, pro bono business consultant Ashu Bhandari enjoys traveling on his Jeanneau Prestige 46 Flybridge. Ashu Bhandari recently installed a wireless remote yacht controller, which he uses to steer and dock his boat.
Yacht Controller offers Dual Band and Fusion remotes, both of which enable an operator to direct movement of a boat through a device the size of a standard cellular phone. The Dual Band remote stands out for its ability to guide the boat’s entry into a slip and its tie-up, the first controller of its kind to offer both functions. The system provides full wireless control for each function.
The Dual Band system includes a waterproof transmitter and receiver as well as watertight gaskets and connections. Both the Dual Band and the new Fusion joystick-style remote utilize a dual-frequency transmission to eliminate the risk of other communications interrupting their signals. A total of 10 relays and five microprocessors provide reliable signaling, and user-friendly setup further enhances the appeal for the independent-minded yacht owner.
