GPLink said it teamed with Wheelhouse Technologies to provide seamless integration to the latter’s marine maintenance system.

Owners of recreational boats and commercial vessels and fleets can utilize real-time monitoring, tracking and support from GPLink with an interface that makes it easier to manage maintenance, spare parts and documentation, the companies said.

“Wheelhouse makes it easy for owners and crew to stay on top of maintenance,” Wheelhouse national sales manager Kenny Campbell said in a statement. “Now we are able to take vessel protection to an entirely new level with GPLink. The proven track record for both companies and immense demand for reliable maintenance logging and vessel tracking create a clear vision for the partnership’s budding services. This partnership will help vessel owners and managers effortlessly keep an eye on all their assets.”

Found on Boston Harbor Cruises vessels, New York City ferries and myriad other boats, the GPLink remote monitoring system can be installed on virtually any engine, both electronic and mechanical, via analog NMEA converters, the company said.

Engine operating parameters can be monitored in real time and logged over a specific data range. The information can then be downloaded into WheelHouse Underway, an application for iOS, Android and Windows devices.
