    Screw that, I'd just anchor out in a bay somewhere.

    Sailboats don't go backwards very well. Bow thrusters or not. This guy did it in one shot in absolutely perfect conditions and just took his sweet time.

    videos are 15 minutes that would have gave you enough time to show the sailboat. Norwegian not all us Americans are stupid we see right through that one. If you buddy's ain't got bow thrusters, what are they then:)

    Masterful use of the tools available to the Skipper!

    little tap on the cruiser on his port at 2:58 . good job though.

    The difference between a single engine, VS twins with a bow and stern thruster. Any fool can drive a boat like that.

    but about 10% of the thrust...

    Nice and slow ... Plus flat no wake ;)

    Take away the engine in the sailing yacht and then I would be impressed too :-)

    He cheated with the thrusters

    Take away the stern and bow thrusters and I'd be impressed.

    what you don't realise is how little visibility the guy on the helm has... nice and slowly does it :-)

    I like that it was co-operative - did you guys notice the sailboat crew fending-off a couple of times? Boaters in marinas and on the water work together.

    I'm wondering why he chose this slip instead of the one to the far right which looks like it has more room....

    well, he used all the tools at its disposal .... the technology used to this ..... to do no harm.

    Also, that yacht certainly has bow thrusters and I bet the sailboat does not.

    Impressive handling!

    Sailboat gets pushed around more from wind and it much harder to handle!

    nonetheless. The motorboat captain knows what he is doing.

    But also a rudder that requiers momentum to steer.

    In reality its like comparing oranges to apples :)

    The motorboat has differential steering using unequal thrust on the engines, which in itself alone has a much better maneuverability. Also torque steering can be negated, leaving the thrusters to do their job. Thrusters behave differently on sailboats and motorboats.

    This sailboat has thrusters too and a double slip.

    What exactly does the sailboat docking have to do with the motorboat docking? The guy with the motorboat has thrusters up his ass, he can spin in a circle if he wants...
