Raymarine Launches Monitoring and Control System

The YachtSense system provides remote monitoring and control of on-board systems through an app.

Raymarine announced the launch of YachtSense, a remote monitoring system that provides users with control of Raymarine equipment and vessel systems from mobile devices through a new app.

“Our YachtSense Ecosystem offers a connected boating solution for every boater,” Raymarine vice president and general manager Gregoire Outters said in a statement. “Our Axiom owners can take advantage of the new Raymarine app, and the YachtSense Link router will keep them connected with the security of remote vessel monitoring.

“And for our OEM boatbuilder partners,” Outters added, “the YachtSense Ecosystem is a comprehensive and bespoke digital control solution offering new-boat owners seamless on board and off-boat control and monitoring.”

The central component of the system is the YachtSense Link router, which keeps users connected through 4G/LTE cellular and Wi-Fi networks, and integrates seamlessly with Raymarine products. The router allows users to remotely monitor a variety of on-board systems and connect with Raymarine navigation components while underway using mobile devices.

On-board systems are controlled using the Yacht Sense Digital Control switching system. When combined with YachtSense Link, boaters can remotely control and monitor multiple electrical devices, activate bilge pumps, control lighting, and monitor tanks and fuel levels.
