Owners of new Xquisite Yachts will get five years of Vessel Vanguard service.

Vessel Vanguard, a vessel maintenance management system, is providing a multiyear subscription to every new owner of an Xquisite Yacht.

All Xquisite Yacht catamarans will come with five years of Vessel Vanguard service, which provides owners with notifications of and at-a-glance status for required maintenance.

It also establishes a protocol for Xquisite’s technical department to remotely monitor maintenance tasks and offer technical assistance, if necessary. All maintenance history is logged and accessible for potential buyers of the boat in the future.

“Our goal was to create the ultimate luxury yacht for cruisers,” Tamas Hamor, CEO of Xquisite Yachts, said in a statement. “With safety and innovative design blended together, we strive to offer our customers a truly turnkey boating experience. The seamless convenience and system awareness provided by Vessel Vanguard perfectly complements the level of ownership simplicity for which Xquisite is known.”

“A relationship between Xquisite Yachts and Vessel Vanguard is the perfect combination,” Vessel Vanguard founder and CEO Don Hyde said. “We both approach our customers from the same perspective, with the goal of creating the greatest boating experience possible.”
