How It Works.


YachtBrain is a powerful tool for boat owners. Using YachtBrain, you can monitor, control, automate systems, and enjoy your boat like never before. All through an app on your phone.

  • Stay connected to your boat 24/7 in real-time.
  • Be in control turn on and off boat lights from nearby or far away.
monitor in real-time

YachtBrain uses sensors to monitor all things electrical on your boat. Check temperature and humidity anywhere onboard. See your boat’s location via GPS map and know if your boat is drifting out of anchorage using the Anchor Watch feature. Receive notifications for unauthorized movement. YachtBrain can alert you when events do occur and when they don’t.

control it all

Control it all, straight from your phone, tablet, or laptop.Using YachtBrain remote controlled relays you can switch on and off electrical devices such as lights, pumps, fans etc. Anything electrical can be switched on or off while you are onboard or a world away. No matter the distance, reaction time is an instant.

make the rules to automate

YachtBrain is an automation platform that makes your boat smart. by sensing events -- such as your arrival, pumps turning on, the temperature -- and actively relaying data based on the rules you set up, YachtBrain gives you the ability to automate just about anything.

Upon Arrival

YachtBrain knows when you or your guests are within range and allows your boat to take action. On your arrival, your boat can turn on lights, send messages, and show who is onboard.

At Night

YachtBrain knows the time of day and the state of your vessel. If you’re at anchor, your boat will be able to turn on anchor and cockpit lights as it grows dark. When day arrives, she’ll also know to turn the lights off.

Any Time

Want to be onboard with a cold beer by 5 PM Friday? She can turn on the fridge at the right time, allowing you to kick back and control everything with the touch of a button.
