CMC Marine formalises its partnership with Dockmate, a Belgium-based company specialising in remote control systems, after working with it on two Benetti superyachts. The aim of the agreement is seamless integration of the two brand’s products, providing owners with manoeuvring systems that are increasingly technological, convenient to use, and efficient.
CMC Marine formalises its partnership with Dockmate, the Belgian company that since 2012 has been designing control systems for yachts all over the world.
The brilliant results of their first joint project are linked to the prestigious Benetti name, with the two companies achieving perfect synergy between their respective products on the ninth Mediterraneo 116 and the second Oasis 40M units. The Benetti R&D office worked alongside CMC Marine’s and Dockmate’s engineers, simulating integration tests in the laboratory with a demo of the yachts used to determine the interaction between the Tuscany-based company’s thrusters and the port manoeuvring control systems developed by the Belgian company.
As a result of this synergy, the owners of the two Benetti yachts will be able to use their Dockmate TWIST wireless remote control to manage all onboard manoeuvring systems.
A basic feature of Dockmate systems is their ability to proportionally control the thrusters on any model equipped with CMC Marine’s CMC-CANopen system and control panels. As a result, numerous yachts all over the world will soon be fitted with control systems developed by the two brands.
The new partnership confirms the intention of the company led by Alessandro Cappiello to align production with the results of high-level technological research, as well as raising the level of comfort offered to meet the needs of a new type of owner in search of the perfect balance between convenience and innovation.
