Dockmate® TWIST

The TWIST can be fully customised to combine engine- and thruster control in 1 joystick. Moreover, the TWIST’s proportional 3-axis joystick can provide fully proportional speed control of the boat’s engines and thrusters. All the while offering the exact same feeling and response time as the boat’s engines and thruster controls.
  • Horn and 1 or 2 winches or windlasses can also be controlled from the TWIST
  • The TWIST transmitter can be used as a remote control or as a fixed joystick (when clamped in its Cradle)
  • The TWIST is waterproof (IP67) and floats

    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.
