Dockmate, manufacturer of advanced wireless remote controls for yachts, announced today the integration of Dockmate wireless joystick docking technology with the JetStick 4, the proprietary joystick controller from Hinckley Yachts.

Dockmate's VECTOR remote will be able to seamlessly emulate the JetStick 4's operation, allowing boaters to have identical experiences when using either. Boaters will even be able to use their Dockmate VECTOR remote to engage and disengage the JetStick 4's quality of life features - Dockhold and G-Lock. Dockmate and Hinckley Yachts engineers worked side-by-side to achieve this software design, further enhancing Dockmate's ultimate objective of providing "plug-and-play" functionality by connecting its wireless remotes to common engines, thrusters and control unit systems. Through these connections, Dockmate allows boaters to be in complete control of their boat's movement from anywhere on board, including when away from the helm.

"It has been a pleasure to have our two teams working together to achieve this union between Dockmate and Hinckley Yachts technology," said Dirk Illegems, president, Dockmate. "Hinckley Yachts is synonymous in the boating industry with quality and elegance, and through our integration, we know we'll be able to give their boaters enhanced flexibility and as much control as possible over their vessel in all situations."

"Dockmate has shown a great understanding of our technology and our customer base through their work with us on integrating with the JetStick 4," said Mike Moriarty, Electrical Engineer, Hinckley Yachts. "We are very proud of the new JetStick system and its intuitive, easy use - a philosophy with which Dockmate's remote docking system fits right in with. Our customers are sure to be pleased with the variety of control options available on the latest Hinckley vessels."

A reimagined helm experience with a fluid, automated interface, the JetStick 4 provides elegant, smooth control over the yacht while docking. A clean, simple screen interface allows for switching between modes and controls for the joystick to manipulate.
