Dock N Go Steals the Show Part Deux-2011 Annapolis Sailboat Show



As of today, the popular 'Dock N Go' system (available on select Beneteau Sense and Oceanis models) has stolen the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, MD (running Oct 6-10) for the second year in a row.   The joystick control system which allows the helm person the ability to pivot the boat on its axis in a full circle was premiered at the same show in 2010 and was hailed as revolutionary.  The ability for newcomers to the sport or boaters with limited crew to dock the boat with the mere touch of a joystick has taken the boating community by storm.   The enclosed video provides a birds eye view of the dock n go process in very tight quarters on a 2012 Beneteau Oceanis 45.  As of today the popular Dock n go system has produced the sale of six new Oceanis 45's at the annual Annapolis show.

Made available on the Beneteau SENSE model sailboats initially, the feature has been extended to select models in the Oceanis line as well.  If 'Imitation is the best form of flattery', The first of it's kind, Dock N Go has triggered a wave of copy cat systems (in development) by other sailboat brands.
