Prestige and Raymarine launch DockSense™ at boot Düsseldorf International Boat Show 2019
Raymarine and Prestige have launched DockSense™, a new system designed to automate and simplify boat docking. This intelligent docking solution uses object recognition and motion sensing technology to assist boat owners when berthing. The DockSense system uses FLIR machine vision camera technology and video analytics to integrate intelligence gathered from surrounding imagery with the vessel’s propulsion and steering system to assist boat owners in tight quarter docking manoeuvring. Prestige Yachts, a Groupe Beneteau brand, will become the first to demonstrate the technology.
Now Available On All New Prestige Yachts
Prestige is at the forefront of the luxury motor yacht market. Manufactured in Vendée, France, Prestige design and produce the most livable yachts from 40 to 75 feet. Both FLYBRIDGE and SPORT ranges offer contemporary, high-end and clever motor yachts. And the addition of DockSense will make them even more intelligent.
“We are delighted to be able to offer this new technology from Raymarine to our clients going forward,” says Nick Hatfield, Prestige Brand Manager at Ancasta. “Prestige leads the way in early adoption of technology to open up boating to all. Berthing can present challenges, especially in new locations, so we expect this new system will prove extremely popular with our buyers.”
“Our goal is to be the global benchmark for all boating experiences,” said Hervé Gastinel, CEO of Groupe Beneteau.
“The Raymarine DockSense solution will give future Prestige owners the confidence to dock safely and aligns with our vision to simplify the boating experience and make boating accessible to a much larger audience,” confirms Erik Stromberg, Prestige Product Marketing Director.
