Manoeuvring your BENETEAU yacht in harbour becomes child’s play
Gone is the stress of manoeuvring in harbour.
BENETEAU is launching DOCK & GO, an exclusive innovation to bring your boat alongside with complete peace of mind.
BENETEAU re- invents boat handling
By allowing yachtsmen to have access to the most complicated harbour berths, BENETEAU is removing a huge burden from sailors’ enjoyment of being on the water and lifting the apprehension felt about manoeuvring. A child would be able to bring an Oceanis 50 alongside her berth, in complete confidence.
An intuitive joystick makes berthing precise, safe and fun
Thanks to its joystick, which synchronises a pivoting saildrive base and bowthruster, DOCK & GO allows you to manoeuvre a large sailing yacht calmly, whatever the wind and tide or port layout.
Fun and very intuitive, the system makes berthing the boat in a restricted space easy and gives a precision of movement without comparison.
Safety and thrust for error-free handling
Uniting safety and thrust, DOCK & GO combines the assistance of the engine and bowthruster, giving the same thrust both astern and ahead. Compatible with feathering or folding propellers, DOCK & GO optimises a yacht’s thrust for all-round manoeuvrability.
