The Yacht Controller Dual Band model is the latest technology in remote wireless controls for boat mooring. Even more advanced than the original patented Yacht Controller model, the DUAL BAND version has finally left behind its many imitators. By operating on two completely separate frequency bands, the Yacht Controller Dual Band model makes mooring even safer than before by eliminating external interference from any nearby unscreened devices that do not comply with the legal requirements for wireless transmissions.

The Yacht Controller is designed to be the solution to the problems of mooring and maneuvering when short or single handed, allowing a single crew member to moor the boat or pick up buoys from anywhere on the boat while maintaining full control at all times by giving total wireless control of your bow thruster, stern thruster, engines and anchor windlass.  The system comprises two elements – the handheld transmitter/control unit and the receiver, which transmits your commands to the various boat systems.  Operation is very simple: put the controls to neutral, turn the Yacht Controller receiver unit on, switch on the dual band controller and take full control of your boat!

The waterproof transmitter will float if dropped overboard and the silicone membrane switches are robust enough to withstand more than 200,000 activations.

A technological revolution, the DUAL BAND receiver features the following improvements:

  • A double receiver operating on two separate frequency bands, ensuring perfect operation even when there is external interference or when either of the two bands is out of service.
  • The multiprocessor structure (a central CPU with a microprocessor for each function) gives you two levels of control over each function, making unintended commands impossible hould anything go wrong.
  • Double relays for each command output, preventing unintended activation.
  • The modular design can be easily modified to add new functions. If you change your boat you won’t need to buy a new Yacht Controller, you simply replace an internal card and can continue to use the system on your new boat with different controls.
  • LEDs on the front of the receiver unit confirm that the electronics are operating correctly, tell you which commands are being activated and provide details of any malfunctions.
  • A beeper warns you should you lose connection to the transmitter, signals the various states of operation, and has an alarm to advise you of any malfunction.
