Sperry Marine outfitting megayacht with VisionMaster

Northrop Grumman Corp.’s Sperry Marine business unit is bringing its new-generation VisionMaster FT technology to the megayacht market.

Sperry Marine is supplying a complete suite of navigation electronics for a 142-foot yacht being built in Italy, including X- and S-band radar, electronic chart display and information system, TotalWatch multifunction workstation, gyrocompass, autopilot, steering system and other navigation sensors.

Telemar Yachting, Sperry Marine’s authorized representative in Italy, will oversee the design, installation, integration and commissioning of the systems.

“The Baglietto order is an important step in our program to bring the benefits of our big-ship VisionMaster FT technology to the megayacht sector,” said J. Nolasco DaCunha, vice president of Sperry Marine, in a statement. “Working with the specialists at Telemar Yachting, we are looking to capture a greater share of the IBS market for megayacht builders, building on our position as a major supplier of gyrocompasses and autopilots for large pleasure yachts.”
