ZF, a world leader in marine propulsion technology, and Yacht Controller® announced today the introduction of “Imperium”, the marine industry’s first total control package incorporating wired and wireless command in one electronic platform, and the appointment of Yacht controller as an authorized seller of this new product as well as the wide array of other ZF marine control products.

Using ZF’s SmartCommand leading edge electronic propulsion control system, and packaged with Yacht Controller’s® wireless remote-control product, “Imperium” will be available to the marine market through Yacht Controller’s® distribution network to Shipyards, Service Yards, Dealers, and Owners. The integration of these two well established systems will provide the highest level of vessel maneuverability control in the marketplace.

“Imperium – Latin for total command, is the perfect description for this new control system package” said Gerald Berton, President of Yacht Controller® LLC. “We’re pleased to have earned this partnership with ZF who is well known as a pioneer and leader in marine propulsion technology worldwide. This alliance provides the opportunity for Yacht Controller® to combine technologies with ZF to better serve all segments of the marine market – Pleasure and Commercial”, Berton continued.

“Working with Yacht Controller®, and its integration with ZF controls the user experience will be elevated to the next level of precise vessel control” said Keith Stanley, ZF Marine Pleasure Craft Product Line Manager North & Central America. “Our products incorporate ZF’s well-proven hardware and software to ensure reliability, ease of operation and low maintenance, and Yacht Controller® systems integrate very well with our product portfolio. With our wide range of control systems, core equipment can be optimally chosen to match the type of vessel and propulsion configuration – single engine, multi-engine or multi-station. The Yacht Controller® system can be coupled seamlessly to the ZF control system for ease of docking and maneuvering. In particular, our Smart Command System included with Yacht Controller’s® Imperium package, will be the premier vessel control system in the market.”

“Imperium” will be offered with custom platinum tone controls to further exemplify the high quality and special distinction of this premium system.
