Siren Marine, Jeanneau North America partner on connected boat


Siren Marine announced a partnership through which every new Jeanneau sailboat purchased in North America will be a “connected boat,” starting at the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Md., next month. Jeanneau also will offer Siren’s connected-boat technology in outboard and sterndrive boats as an option. 

Newport, R.I.-based Siren Marine will adapt its Monitor Track Control technology and smartphone app to provide Jeanneau owners with a customized experience. Owners will be able to connect with their Siren-equipped boats to monitor conditions and receive alerts about such information as unauthorized entry or movement, geofence parameters, bilge pump activity, battery condition, and shore-power connection status.

“We’ve built our reputation on providing discerning boaters with not just the finest sailing and power vessels, but also with a positive ownership experience,” said Jeanneau North America president Nicolas Harvey in a statement. “Siren worked closely with us to create a connected-boat solution in keeping with our brand image and the needs of our customers.”
