YachtBrain connects to your plan

YachtBrain does NOT charge a monthly fee to connect to your boat. You have a mobile plan, access to wifi networks, VSAT etc why should we send another monthly invoice for a propriety connection that may not work at your boat's location – boats move.

What happens when you go offshore beyond the range of network towers? YachtBrain simply connects to your boat's local network. If you don't have a network on your boat no problem. We can assist getting the right network device from your mobile provider or one of the many inexpensive, readily available devices.
With a network on your boat you can do all the connected things you are used to.

YachtBrain uses WiFi to connect to users via UIs. The YachtBrain Sensor Network uses IoT standard protocols and is always connected and automation always executes. Stay Connected with YachtBrain..
