Siren Marine partners with Freedom Boat Club

Freedom Boat Club of Rhode Island tapped Siren Marine for monitoring and tracking systems for its three fleet locations in the Ocean State. It also plans to equip fleets at six Freedom locations in Connecticut.

Siren Marine is a Newport, R.I.-based company that trademarked the term “Connected Boat.” It outfitted the the club’s fleets in Newport, Warwick and Portsmouth with its MTC Connected Boat System and SirenFleet Fleet Management Portal.

Dick Cromwell, owner of Freedom Boat Club Rhode Island and Connecticut, said he will add the system to Connecticut fleets in Branford, Deep River, Mystic, Stamford, Stratford and Westbrook.

This system allows the tracking of boats in real time, while monitoring battery charge, bilge pump activity, engine hours and more.

“Our culture at Freedom Boat Club is to provide members with a fun, worry-free boating experience,” Cromwell said in a statement. “The advantages the Siren Marine system provides are a safety net to our members in case of emergencies or inclement weather. We always know where they are. Also, the dock staff can manage their time well and be very responsive.”

“Freedom Boat Club is an ideal use-case for our Connected Boat technology,” said Siren founder and CEO Daniel Harper.
