VesselVanguard has unveiled the next generation of its vessel maintenance-management website and app.

The company says the new website offers streamlined access to private-boat profiles that track and organize maintenance tasks for on board equipment. It can send task alerts for service, assign maintenance via email directly to contractors and certified technicians, organize warranty data and include digitized user manuals. The site also offers a comprehensive member resources section that highlights industry news and magazines, marine services, tips and more.

The new VesselVanguard app can be used by IOS and Android users and is available for download from the App Store and Google Play. It includes off-line functionality so that boat profile data and downloaded manuals are accessible on a mobile device at all times. Task assignments and rescheduling are pushed to an offline queue to be executive when internet access is reacquired.

“We have made a considerable investment in our quest to simplify the boat ownership experience,” said Don Hyde, founder and CEO of VesselVanguard, in a statement. “Whether you have a bassboat, sailboat, long-distance cruiser or yacht, every boat owner and their service providers want information that is easy to understand and act upon. Let’s face it, boat ownership is not intuitive, and our job is to turn best guess into best practice.”

VesselVanguard is a subscription service that offers an immediate, at-a-glance look at the maintenance status of any vessel. From the dashboard, users can click to schedule and assign upcoming service, defer or reschedule tasks to a later date, get instructions and diagrams from manuals and easily and effectively manage the service needs of a vessel.
