Free app for managing your yacht

Free app for managing your yacht Yacht apps
MyYacht Free – the no cost app for managing information about your yacht, motorboat or sailboat on your iPhone or iPad is now available from Apple’s AppStore. Owners of all types of boats who want to keep track of all attributes of their yacht from insurance to sails, from hull specifications to electronic equipment now have a perfectly free and easy to use mobile application.

MyYacht Free is a simplified version of the paid-for app MyYacht. MyYacht Free allows you to store all types of specifications, from registration and insurance to size and weight – including on all types of equipment, from electronics to deck gear and safety equipment – in a simple to use mobile application. And if you have enabled iCloud, you can back up the data and download it to another device, so that it is always available.

After we launched MyYacht, the paid-for version, late last year, we have had a lot of good feedback from all our users, and have made significant enhancements to MyYscht, including a complete new user interface. But we were also contacted by sailors and boater who didn’t need the full version, but needed a more restricted one. MyYacht Free is our response to these needs. It lacks tasks and logbook, which are central to MyYacht, but includes everything else, says Rolf Frydenberg, Chair of Yachtapps AS, the developer of MyYacht and MyYacht Free.

Yacht and boat owners can choose between MyYacht and MyYacht Free, making their choice based on price (nothing beats free!) and functionality (there are many tasks that need doing irrespective of the size of boat you have!). MyYacht is also useful for making logbook entries, and you can share them on Facebook at the touch of a button.
MyYacht Free allows you to keep track of information about the boat, whereas the full version – MyYacht – also keeps track of tasks planned or done such as installation, service and maintenance. Both apps help you keep your yacht or boat in good order.

More features are planned for upcoming versions of both apps. Those plans are influenced by our users’ needs, so please keep sending us your feedback!

The app MyYacht and MyYacht Free are Apple iOS based and can be downloaded for iPhone and iPad from AppStore
