At the 2023 Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show happening on Feb. 15-19, The Yacht Group, a leading manufacturer of control, maneuverability, and backlighting systems for the marine industry, will unveil its Yacht Controller Maximo and Yacht Controller Supremo (for superyachts) systems. Twenty years after its founding, The Yacht Group has established itself as a leading marine electronics and accessories manufacturer.
Yacht Controller Maximo and Supremo from The Yacht Group are the first fully wireless Wi-Fi-managed and radio frequency-controlled systems for boats. It's possible to control everything about the systems from any place with an internet connection and a smart device. This includes remote scanning for spectrum analysis, tuning and optimizing antenna bandwidth for clear transmission, setting multiple parameters for incremental and proportional speed of engines and thrusters (including five pre-set and easy-to-select-and-change profiles for engine speed settings), and more.
A technician on board is required for all other wireless controllers to assess and improve reception interference, make control adjustments via mechanical settings, or fix other problems via physical repair.
To make adjustments on the fly without mechanically disassembling any part of the hardware, owners and operators on board or off can connect directly via Yacht Controller Wi-Fi to smart devices or multi-function devices (MFDs) like Garmin.
Both the Maximo and Supremo systems, which are considered to be the best in the industry, allow for the addition of multipurpose, remotely controlled machinery like gangways, watersports platforms, cable master control, cranes, and more. Among the other distinguishing attributes are the following:
The Maximo system has been nominated for the 2023 Miami Innovation Awards, which will be given out at the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show. These awards are among the most prestigious in the industry because they recognize the manufacturers and suppliers responsible for bringing groundbreaking innovations in the marine industry.
“We are excited to participate in the Miami International Boat Show again and connect with partners and customers and are confident that Maximo and Supremo will set a new bar for remote yacht control,” said Anthony Valiente, chief operating officer of The Yacht Group. “We’re also thrilled to showcase our additional product offerings including custom lettering, high powered searchlights, thermal and low light cameras and additional items. There are a full suite of products available at all price points.”
