Sentinel Marine Solutions announced a strategic partnership with Groupe Beneteau to bring a new connectivity application to the marine market.

Sentinel, a connected-boat platform and IoT provider, has launched Seanapps, which will connect Beneteau-branded boats to clients, dealers and the boatbuilder group.


“Developed together with our partner Sentinel Marine Solutions, this on-board smart application enables boaters, dealers and charter companies to connect to their boat or fleet at any time,” Gianguido Girotti, Beneteau deputy CEO for brand and product strategy, said in a statement. “We are very excited to kickstart this solution with a series of Beneteau, Jeanneau and Prestige models. By 2025, all 9,000 boats we build every year will be equipped with Seanapps as standard equipment.”

Marko Pihlar, CEO of Sentinel Marine Solutions, added: “As an end-to-end solution provider, we are now able to take the latest connected boat innovations into the mainstream. By partnering with Groupe Beneteau, Sentinel Marine Solutions will expand its global presence … to transform, simplify and enhance the boating experience for thousands of users, with both new and existing boats.”
