Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – Dockmate, manufacturer of wireless remote controls for yachts, announced today that the Dockmate Remote Control Docking system has been named one of Boating Industry’s 2021 Top Products.
To be eligible for consideration, products or services had to have been introduced or significantly updated since January 2020. With hundreds of well-qualified submissions from manufacturers across every segment of the industry for consideration, selecting top products was no easy task for the Boating Industry editorial team. The winning products were chosen based on many factors such as their impact on the industry, innovation and how they advanced their category. The Dockmate submission included substantial innovation in both the system’s hardware and software components.
Dockmate set out to develop a safety product that would eliminate the stress of low-speed maneuvering in crowded marinas and simplifying docking. 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.
“We are very excited to accept this recognition from our industry peers,” said Marc Curreri, CEO, Dockmate U.S. “Our design team has been working tirelessly for the past several years to enhance our product line with the features and functionality that boaters desire. We feel that we have produced the finest product in this category and are pleased that the judges agree.”
“We are so proud of our U.S. dealer for the great efforts they have made garnering recognition for our product line and helping elevate awareness of the brand,” said Dirk Illegems, president, Dockmate.
