Young and young-at-heart megayacht guests often enjoy observing the captain in the wheelhouse, additionally asking questions. So, YachtCloud, a yachting-technology company, got to thinking. Why not put some of the same navigation details and general yacht operational details in the palms of their hands? Thus, Yacht Information System (YIS) is now out.
YIS is a software solution, and therefore doesn’t use the onboard bandwidth. In fact, it’s a customizable app that owners and guests can download onto their smartphones and tablets. You can request it as an onboard TV channel, too. Regardless, the YachtCloud team of software designers can include a map of your megayacht’s journey. Alternately—or additionally—YIS can show you water depth and the yacht’s speed. The tech geeks among your friends and family can “fly” through the onboard systems, too.
You can learn more about YIS in this month’s edition of the MegayachtNews.com newsletter.
