“This is an absolute game changer,” Jimmy Hancock, president of Sea Pro Boats, said in a statement. “We’ve always believed our customers deserve the best, and we know that our partnership with Boat Fix will deliver just that, providing the ultimate in peace of mind and overall boating experience.”

The statement noted that the Boat Fix system provides 24/7/365 remote monitoring of boat functions, such as battery, bilge pump, shore power and engine hours.

Boat Fix also provides free, unlimited 24/7 telephone support for technical and mechanical problems. Boat Fix said its mechanics are on call to help with engine problems over the phone.
