Australian company Deckee announced the launch of its free app and safe boating platform in the United States.

The company says the app provides tools to stay safe and informed on the water, and its launch coincides with a partnership with the National Safe Boating Council, which will coordinate the promotion of safe boating practices and responsible boat ownership.

“Our mission at Deckee is to keep everyone safe and informed on the water. Everything we do aims to make a positive impact and ultimately reduce loss of life, injuries and accidents through assisting boaters in taking proper safety precautions,” founder and CEO Mike McKiernan said in a statement.

The continuously augmented app includes data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Coast Guard aids to navigation, chart features, and weather and sea conditions.

The Coast Guard reports in its 2020 Boating Safety Statistics that there were 767 boating fatalities in the United States last year, an increase of 25.1 percent compared with 2019.

“A strategic partnership with Deckee has the potential to equip the NSBC with unprecedented boating insights,” said NSBC executive director Peg Phillips. “Current and relevant data can be used effectively to inform our recreational boating safety marketing and outreach strategies and initiatives.”
