E3 Systems, a European multi-broadband communications provider for the megayacht industry, announced the U.S. launch of its Hybrid system.

The company said Hybrid provides megayachts with full connectivity, combining satellite, 3G, 4G and terrestrial broadband services and ensuring the fastest possible service at the lowest possible rate, whether in port, offshore or mid-ocean, according to the Mallorca-based company.

“Our clients all want 100 percent connectivity. Over the last 20 years we have got closer, step by step, as new services have matured,” E3 Systems group managing director Roger Horner said in a statement. “Our team of engineers has developed a system that integrates a yacht’s entire communications system that functions similar to a smartphone in that it can both automatically and manually seamlessly switch between different connections as the yacht moves.”

Information about e3’s Hybrid solutions is available by calling the South Florida office at (954) 368-9980 or emailing the company at
