Sail-World.com : Product of the Week: Four ways to secure your boat

Product of the Week: Four ways to secure your boat

'Navtracker GPS tracking system'    .
Depending on where your yacht is kept, security can be a significant issue. Unless you can be present 24 hours a day seven days a week, a yacht is vulnerable to vandalism, robbery and even the theft of the boat itself. A security system can give you peace of mind and there are several types to choose from:

Nav-Tracker GPS Tracking System:

This is the ultimate 'catch a thief' device, tracking the vessel's GPS position if it is moved from where it is berthed.

When a Nav-Tracker transmitter is mounted discreetly on a boat and armed, a wireless ‘geo-fence’ with a 500-meter radius is created. If a boat is moved outside of this fence, Nav-Tracker uses Inmarsat based GPS satellite technology to monitor a boat’s location and notify up to ten people by email and/or text message every 15 minutes with the latitude/longitude, speed and heading. The systems’ optional sensors include door contacts, infrared beam sensors, deck pressure sensors and high water sensors. There is also an optional 130 decibel siren that can be added for extra protection.


Surveillance System -  .. .  
Marine Magellan Insight Security, Monitoring & Surveillance System:

Photograph the robber. With this clever device, no intruder will be able to move around the boat without your knowing

The Marine Magellan Insight includes all the components necessary to help protect a boat and keep an eye on exactly what is happening onboard at all times. The system sends emails and text messages when events occur and saves a snapshot or video clip to the user’s account, which is accessible on any computer or mobile phone with internet access. The owner sees what the camera sees when motion is detected and it also allows the owner to login and view streaming video off the boat on their computer or cell phone.

In addition, Insight notifies a boat owner or captain with a phone call if there’s high water in the bilge, low battery voltage, loss of shore power, smoke or intrusion.

Immobilizer -  .. .  
GOST Immobilizer:

Prevention is always better than cure.

This new product, when armed, prevents the engine from turning over, and is ideal for single-engine boats, which includes most yachts, or yacht tenders, RIBs and PWCs.

The device is controlled via a wireless key fob. When armed, the Immobilizer blocks high current draw from the battery while still allowing low power consumption components such as stereo memory to function normally.

When an engine startup is attempted, the Immobilizer sounds a timed siren and prevents the engine from turning over.


Accoustic barrier -  .. .  
Acoustic Barrier powered by Inferno:

Maybe you think that noise can do the trick, call the neighbours or warn marina officials. This acoustic device can function as a sound barrier or as a traditional siren. It effectively stops intruders in their tracks by generating a patented unbearable pattern, frequency and intensity noise.

GOST is one company that is a specialist in offering security and peace of mind when you are not on your yacht. For more information about all their products, go to their website?nid=79151.

(For those who are anywhere within range of Seattle in the State of Washington, USA, they will be on display between 21-30 January at the Seattle Boat Show, call 1+954.565.9898 for more information.)
