The revolutionary DOCK & GO

dock and goManoeuvring 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. A 360° pivoting saildrive base is synchronised with the bowthruster through a computer. 

 

The helm automatically stays blocked  during the manoeuvre.

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. 

 

Available from September 2010, DOCK & GO will be offered on models fitted with Yanmar 75HP SD engines.

 

The DOCK & GO option is offered on the following models:

 

Sense 50 Oceanis 46 Oceanis 50

 

Now on the New Oceanis model:

 

Oceanis 41 Oceanis 45 Oceanis 48
