Dock & Go

The revolutionary Dock & Go system, a technology developed by Beneteau, simplifies yacht manoeuvres when sailing on engines. Whatever the wind and current conditions, or the harbour configuration, you can control the movement of your boat in a limited space with the kind of accuracy you have never achieved before. Now present on all 45 to 55-feet Oceanis sailing yachts, this high-tech innovation combines engine assistance and a bow thruster synchronized with a sail drive pod rotating to 360°. At once intuitive, safe and fun, this on-board intelligence means you can move the boat in a limited space and dock in the most difficult harbour berths.

 

 

An intuitive system giving you total control

In a single gesture, the DOCK & GO joystick makes manoeuvring intuitive and fun. This system delivers the same power as an engine and standard bow thruster. 90° rotation to port or starboard, as well as forward and reverse on the spot rotation enable you to move the boat in a limited space and access the most difficult harbour berths.

 

On board intelligence

The bow drive, making drawing alongside easier, is synchronised with a saildrive pod rotating to 360° by means of a calculator. The steering remains automatically blocked during the manoeuvre.

 

100% power for better safety

Reversing is done by rotating the sail drive without losing power. The saildrive rotates extremely fast, assisted by an electric engine. The rotation of the pod to 180° means that the lifting propeller can deliver the same speed in both forward and reverse. The combination of the bow drive and engine assistance makes the DOCK & GO system a really safe way to come alongside.
