Sunseeker and British media group debut superyacht app

Publish date:

Working in association with Sunseeker, Yachting Pages Media Group has launched a superyacht application, the Yachting Pages Mobile App.

The app has been designed for superyacht captains, owners and crew and will provide users with access to a database of suppliers.

Of the captains and senior crew that were surveyed at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, 86 percent said they would use an app of this type, Yachting Pages said.

“This is the first superyacht app of its kind, and we are proud to be the official partner,” Simon Clare, marketing director of Sunseeker International, said in a statement. “The innovative new technology opens the door for captains, owners and crew to access yacht suppliers all over the world, and we are excited to be a part of it. We’re looking forward to seeing the response to the app and working with YPMG going forward.

The app is available for download on Apple and Android devices.
