VesselVanguard and Grand Banks Yachts announced a new program designed to simplify boat ownership for Grand Banks customers.

VesselVanguard is a Web-based subscription service that organizes manuals, maintenance schedules and warranties for on-board equipment systems to create a digital boat profile. With each new yacht it delivers, Grand Banks will provide the owner a free subscription to the VesselVanguard service preconfigured with the equipment profile of the boat and set to its owner’s user preferences.

Grand Banks and VesselVanguard created an online customer care portal on the Grand Banks website where each owner will access a vessel’s file, library of manuals for all of its equipment and timely systems upkeep requirements.

VesselVanguard will “push” task alerts to the owner, dealer and service department, in advance, based on elapsed days or hours between required service intervals.

“We strongly believe our owners will enjoy and appreciate the convenience and peace of mind that VesselVanguard provides,” Grand Banks director of brand and marketing David Hensel said in a statement.

“This is a very powerful and sophisticated system and at the same time simple and straightforward to use — which is why we are so happy to offer this resource to our owners. VesselVanguard represents a significant leap forward for boatbuilders and boat buyers alike.”

The VesselVanguard personal boat asset lifecycle management system’s application is available at any time online via computers, smart phones or Apple iPads.
