Advanced Handheld Wireless Remote Controls for Boats
Dockmate® U.S., which offers advanced handheld wireless remote controls for boats, has joined the National Safe Boating Council’s Admiral Club. As the highest tier of NSBC membership, the Admiral Club is an exclusive group of supporters focused on helping the organization succeed in increasing safe boating practices.
“There is no greater cause in our industry than to support safer and more enjoyable boating,” said Brian Sheehan, Dockmate U.S. spokesperson. “Dockmate is designed to make low speed maneuvering and docking safer and stress-free. The goals of the NSBC aligns perfectly with our own. We are grateful for the vital work they do and are happy to support the organization’s ongoing mission.”
Dockmate® was developed by boaters who have spent more than 40 years enjoying their time on the water. During this time, they found, as most boaters do, that docking, particularly on a vessel with limited visibility from the helm, is often a very stressful and possibly even a dangerous experience.
Dockmate set out to develop a safety product that would eliminate this stress by simplifying docking, while providing a reliable, easy-to-install and use solution. The culmination of this development is the Dockmate wireless handheld remote control system, which offers the capability of controlling a boat’s engines, thrusters, anchor and horn - all from a small handheld device.
With Dockmate, boaters can walk away from their helm station to a safer vantage point where they can have better visibility and easily handle lines while docking. The company partnered with the NSBC to provide like-minded boaters the opportunity to embrace new technologies that remove the challenges of boat handling for a safer and more enjoyable time on the water.
