Dockmate, which makes wireless remote docking controls has received factory approval from Volvo Penta to connect with the engine manufacturer’s EVC-E and EVC-2 electronic vessel controls. To date, Dockmate is the only wireless control manufacturer to receive the authorization.

The wireless remote control lets users move away from the helm and still control their boat, which can be helpful for docking and maneuvering in tight quarters. Dockmate integrates with Volvo Penta’s drive-by-wire steering systems including the company’s IPS, stern drive and inboard applications.

“Our focus on creating a stress-free docking experience is perfectly aligned with Volvo’s ‘easy boating’ philosophy,” Brian Sheehan, Dockmate U.S. spokesperson, said in a statement. “The brand’s drive-by-wire engine control systems pair effortlessly with our plug-and-play remote controls; combing to give our customers incredible power and control over their vessels in tight-quarter maneuvering.”
