Dockmate, which makes wireless remote controls for yachts, has expanded its relationship with thruster manufacturer Vetus.

The wireless remote-controls system lets an operator move away from the helm to improve sightlines while maneuvering in close quarters. Dockmate says its system now integrates with the full line of Vetus thrusters.

Added Chris Deboy, vice president of sales and marketing at Vetus, “The Dockmate team truly understands the benefits of thruster technology and has designed a solution to increase confidence and enhance peace of mind for boaters. We are confident that our customers will greatly enjoy the benefits Dockmate’s intuitive wireless control add to the simplicity of low-speed maneuvering and docking.”
