Boat Fix will provide hardware and remote monitoring programs, as well as the Boat Fix app, with an added function to monitor battery consumption.

“One of the unique challenges of electric propulsion is that the charge remaining in the battery is dependent on speed, and therefore, unlike a fuel gauge, it is hard to know how much range you have left,” Boat Fix founder Alastair Crawford said. “In addition to providing our standard vessel monitoring, we have created a solution that will make sure users have the run time to get where they’re going.”

Founded in 1995, VMT builds five electric models from 15 to 29 feet.

“[Boat Fix] had the right capabilities and were able to provide us with a highly tailored solution in a very short time and at an affordable price,” VMT president Alexandre Mongeon said. “We are positive our customers will be extremely pleased with the added value a Boat Fix telematics system will bring to their ownership experience.”
