Gunboat International signs deal with GOST

GOST — or Global Ocean Security Technologies — is working with Gunboat International to provide global remote security, monitoring, tracking and high-definition video surveillance for Gunboat Catamarans, including the new Gunboat 55 and 60.

GOST said its Phantom Insight HD GPS IVR packages have been designed to provide Gunboat owners security whether they’re on board or hundreds of miles away.

More than 12 years ago, Gunboat founder Peter Johnstone set out to create a safe world-cruising sailboat.

“Gunboats are ultimate performance cats designed for extended offshore cruising and circumnavigation,” GOST president Jay Keenan said in a statement. “Our all-in-one Insight HD system provides peace of mind for owner-operators or crew anywhere in the world.”

The Insight HD GPS IVR package adds a GOST Nav-Tracker and GOST Internet Video Recorder to the GOST Insight HD security, monitoring and video surveillance package.

The system alerts owners in the event of high water in the bilge, low battery voltage, loss of shore power, smoke or intrusion on the vessel. Wireless relays will activate external sirens and flash the vessel’s lights when intrusion is detected and can also control AC- or DC-powered devices on board, such as the ice maker, air conditioner or lights.

Gunboat owners average 250 to 350 miles a day offshore and typically cover more than 10,000 miles a year. Gunboats have sailed about 2 million sea miles. The company builds a very refined series at 40, 55, 60 and 78 feet.
