CONWAY, S.C. and MIAMI – Glendinning Marine Products and Yacht Controller LLC have formed a strategic partnership to offer Glendinning’s Complete Controls Electronic Engine Control system with Yacht Controller’s wireless remote yacht command system, the companies said in a statement Wednesday.
Glendinning’s Complete Controls system offers a control head, complete feature set, plug and play installation and optional automatic backup control capability. Yacht Controller’s wireless remote allows a vessel’s captain to control the yacht’s gears, bow and stern thrusters and anchor from anywhere on board.
According to Wollard, the combination of the two systems results in user-friendly, precision yacht control, no matter if the owner or a professional captain is operating the vessel, said David Wollard, Glendinning vice president.
“This is another advance to bring more people into boating by making it easier for them to operate their own craft,” Wollard said.
Gerry Berton, president of Yacht Controller, agreed.
“Both companies want to make boating easier and more enjoyable through the use of technology,” Berton said. “There are efforts underway to introduce additional co-operative products in the near future with the same goal.”
