The Yacht Controller is now integrated on Garmin displays.

Yacht Controller has partnered with Garmin International to integrate its wireless remote control with compatible Garmin multifunction displays. This lets operators use the display to access the remote’s control panel during maneuvers, eliminating the need for a dedicated Yacht Controller screen.

“Yacht Controller is on more than 17,000 boats,” Gerald Burton, president of the Yacht Group, told Trade Only Today.

Yacht Controller is available for inboard and Volvo Penta IPS pod drive applications, with two types of remotes: one with individual switches for changing direction and one with a joystick that mimics the IPS joystick. Burton said the remote is designed by Porsche and has a quad processor with dual relays. The operator can use it on the boat or from the docks. It’s powered by AAA batteries.

The Yacht Group also offers stainless-steel lettering for yachts, thruster systems, spotlights, cameras and Yacht Command, a system for converting cable or hydraulic controls to an electronic system.
