Connected technology on superyachts
As our lives become increasingly integrated with online activity, our expectations for instant access to the latest blockbuster movies and binge worthy series, connection to the internet for access to those important virtual business meetings, or watching live sports events while on board have all been heightened in recent years. While such services are available at our fingertips on land - at sea they have traditionally struggled with unreliable internet connection, and eye watering prices.
But, with satellite technology more advanced than ever, certain companies are offering reliable worldwide connectivity so all your safety, comfort, and entertainment needs are met while on board. Here at Ocean Independence we have formed a strategic partnership with Excelerate Marine to offer seamless access to such services for all of our clients.
Giving you access to all the latest VSAT and 4/5g data hardware, Excelerate Marine provides unrivalled integration, and support services to ensure your new build, refit, or upgrade benefits from the best connectivity solutions for your yacht, so you are always connected while on board.
Aiming to offer groundbreaking internet speeds at sea for superyacht owners and commercial vessels alike, another yacht streaming solution has come from Starlink Maritime. Yet another innovative venture of Elon Musk’s, while coverage has only included all cruising grounds in the northern hemisphere up to now, 2023 will see the service expand to allow yachts to connect to a high-quality internet connection from anywhere on Earth thanks to the impressive Starlink satellite network.
Whether you want to stream the Monaco Grand Prix from Port d’Hercule to follow the on-track action, cosy up with your family for a movie night in the Norwegian Fjords, or keep up to date with business from the comfort of your private superyacht, both Exelerate Marine and Starlink Maritime enable you to stay connected from the most remote cruising grounds around the globe.
Truly the future of yachting, maritime streaming services are revolutionising the on board experience. With unparalleled levels of entertainment and connectivity now available while at sea, connected technology is certainly a trend for yachting technology in 2023.
