Dockmate, manufacturer of advanced wireless remote controls for yachts, announced today its award-winning Dockmate wireless remote control docking system has been selected by Summit MotorYachts, to be incorporated into the Summit 54. Summit MotorYachts is a new brand that lives under parent company Kadey-Krogen Yachts.

The Dockmate wireless remote-control docking system allows boaters to easily operate electronically controlled engines, bow and stern thrusters, anchor winches and horns from anywhere on board with a small handheld device. Each Dockmate system includes a rugged wireless, handheld transmitter with an easy-grip rubber finish, lanyard and wireless charger, as well as a plug-and-play receiver compatible with most brands of engines and thrusters.

"The Summit 54 is an exceptional build and the perfect platform for our Dockmate system," said Brian Sheehan, Dockmate U.S. spokesperson. "She was designed from the ground up to be a beautiful, long-range cruiser with exceptional features to enhance the comfort of the owners and crew."

"After considering many aftermarket electronics options, we chose to add Dockmate to our new Summit 54," said Tucker West, vice president of sales, Summit MotorYachts. "A product like Dockmate can always make your customers' experience, particularly in stressful situations like close-quarters maneuvering, just a little easier. We are confident our clients will appreciate the functionality that Dockmate provides."

The new Summit 54 is designed with beautiful exterior lines and her hull, with an impressive 330 nautical mile range at 23 knots, was developed by Michael Peters Yacht Design with exceptional seakeeping and performance capabilities. Notably different, inside and out, from other yachts on the market; the interior, designed by Espinosa Yacht Design and interior designer, Katie Astras, is hand-crafted to be classic with high-quality finishes throughout the main deck and lower accommodations. Kadey-Krogen Yachts is recognized by its 40-plus-year history of design innovation and is applauded for building more than 620 semi-custom, Pure Full Displacement™ trawler yachts.
