Wireless navigation server wins NMEA honor

Digital Yacht received the 2011 Technology Award from the National Marine Electronics Association for Boatranet, its wireless navigation server.

“To receive this award, which takes innovation, technology and value into account, is a huge accolade and a massive credit to the team who have worked hard for nearly two years to bring this product to market,” Digital Yacht CEO Nick Heyes said in a statement.

Boatranet was launched earlier this year and was shown to the American market for the first time in February at the Miami International Boat Show. Not only can it be used for the practical and safety side of boating, but it is also a great entertainment system, the company said.

Boatranet will help the whole marine electronics sector grow, as it’s symbiotic with all leading systems and links marine electronic devices to the latest range of consumer products,” added Heyes, who received the award at the recent NMEA International Marine Electronics Conference & Expo in Fort Myers, Fla.
