Dockmate® announces powerful wireless bridge and web-based app for added customization

PRESS RELEASE – Boortmeerbeek, Belgium–Dockmate®, manufacturer of advanced wireless remote control systems for yachts, announced today the launch of Dockmate Linkmate and a web-based interface that will allow users to seamlessly and effortlessly connect with their Dockmate for added customization.



Linkmate acts as a wireless bridge between a Dockmate receiver and a smartphone or computer. Through a web-based interface, users will have access to their Dockmate’s status, alarm messages and settings, which can then be adjusted according to their needs and specifications. In accordance with Dockmate’s safety guidelines, all adjustable settings are intuitive and safe to change. Alarm messages give users a useful diagnosing tool to assess any issues without the need for an onsite technician. The Dockmate web app is compatible with all mobile devices and adapts to any screen size.



“Here at Dockmate, we have always focused on helping boaters to explore the world by making docking easier and safer,” said Dirk Illegems, president, Dockmate. “Our exclusive features and wide range of settings make Dockmate a very flexible solution that can be customized to a boat and its owner. Previously, those settings could only be changed by a certified installer. Our goal with Linkmate is to empower our users to be able to change certain settings even after the installer has left the boat. That way we can ensure the Dockmate can truly be customizable and tailored to your preferences, even if they evolve.” Linkmate will be available to order at METSTRADE2022, at Dockmate stand 01.721.

When using a Dockmate® remote, that was charged to 100%, it takes up to 3 hours of constant use (remote actively communicating with the Receiver) to deplete the battery. This translates to a few very difficult and/or long docking manoeuvres, or lasts at least 15 docking manoeuvres of approximately 10 minutes.

During our test charging a Dockmate® remote from empty to completely full takes up to 3 hours. In practice we’ve observed a typical charging time for a Dockmate® remote of 20 to 40 min. For boaters using our latest Dockmate® Cradle, their Dockmate® remote is virtually always charged up and ready for use.
