Glendinning Marine Products & Yacht Controller form strategic partnership

Friday, June 28, 2013

Glendinning Marine Products and Yacht Controller LLC have formed a strategic partnership to offer Glendinning's Complete Controls Electronic Engine Control system with Yacht Controller's wireless remote yacht command system. Glendinning vice president David Wollard made the announcement.

Glendinning's Complete Controls system offers an attractive control head, complete feature set, easy "plug and play" installation and an optional automatic backup control capability. Yacht Controller's wireless remote allows a vessel's captain to control the yacht's gears, bow and stern thrusters and anchor from anywhere on board, eliminating all sightline problems.

According to Wollard, the combination of the two systems results in user-friendly, precision control of a yacht, no matter if the owner or the professional captain is operating the vessel. "This is another advance by Glendinning to bring more people into boating by making it easier for them to operate their own craft," Wollard said.

President of Yacht Controller agreed. "Both companies want to make boating easier and more enjoyable through the use of technology," he said. "There are efforts underway to introduce additional co-operative products in the near future with the same goal."

Glendinning manufactures a complete family of electronic shift and throttle controls which work with both electronic and mechanical propulsion systems. Yacht Controller eliminates all the frantic activities normally associated with docking. Yacht Controller is a winner of the NMMA Innovation Award and is certified by the FCC and patented by the US Patent Office.
