Monitoring system launched

ADVERTISEMENT

Coral Gables, Fla.,-based Yacht Group has launched a boat monitoring system called Yacht Protector, which uses wireless sensors to allow owners to track the location of their boat and condition of vital onboard systems. If user-defined system thresholds are triggered, all contacts are alerted via a smartphone app, and up to four more receive alerts via SMS, email and by phone from the call center. Authorized users can also use a Yacht Key fob to silence alarms when on board.

A geo-location GSM-based system, it is designed to be a plug-and-play system that requires no cutting of wires or boat modifications. Sensors are placed with hi-bond tape after pairing them to the module.

The system costs $1,295 and includes a one-year subscription and a two-year warranty. It includes a core module and four sensors — bilge water level, intrusion, battery condition and shore power current — and a Yacht Key fob.

It is available for insurance discounts through insurers including Novamar.
